Wind damage

I might have spoken too soon last week!  The worst of the wind was yet to hit.  Not too much damage with plants snapping off but lots of plants with what I think it called wind burn.  Here is a philadelphus with a healthy green lee side and a brown and crisped wind side.  Not good for foliage in bouquets!

On a happier note – the first rose of the year – 10 days before last year.  I am worried there will be a gap between my perenials flowering 10-14 days early still and the annuals that are struggling in the cold, wondering what planet they are on.  April was very dry and very hot, (20C +) and May has been windy, wet and cold (10C).  I will always complain about the weather!
