For two days the winds have been blowing fiercely here! Yesterday had the added factor of chilly temperatures. Trellises blowing down, lupines breaking in half, newly-planted trees hanging on for dear life. Poor little hummingbirds fighting the wind. And forget trying to keep a hat on!
Going to the Farmer's Market yesterday was not a good idea. I was hoping to take photos of all the beautiful plants, flowers, herbs, perennials and other offerings. Many of the vendors were wrapped up in blankets, the tents were flying over and everyone was dashing about trying to get out of the chilly wind. There were several displays of delphiniums, hollyhocks, foxgloves that were bending to the winds. We stayed approximately 20 minutes, grabbed two plants and jumped back in the car. Whew! Drove to directly to a coffee shop for a nice hot beverage! Needless to say, no photos. Next week, hoping for better, quiet weather.
Have a super Friday!!
