I hate the wind, not a bit, not quite a bit, ALOT.
Currently watched 50+ MPH wind trash my futile attempts at a garden, oh for about 8 hours now. My washing ended up in the field - even wihth 4 storm pegs per sock. Had to retrieve a hen from behind the wheel of the camper - hiding to get out of the wind. Did I venture OUT there in my cut off trousers and pumps and t-shirt - no - full industrial winter gear, sallopets, luminous jacket, two bricks in my pockets and a wooly hat, scarf and huge wellies (can't take the posh ones out - they'd be outraged). Picked up the hen, collected the washing and ran back inside invigorated from my cold shower!
I'm not a happy puppy.
There may be photos tomorrow if my camera isn't in Greenland. Although if my house and its contents get there safely - I'd be happy about that.
This is just NOT fair. Not in May.
However, didn't I just write - the wind in Orkney is from any direction, can occur at any time of year and there are only 10 days a year without wind.
Maybe I did - but in May - thats just rude.
Thankfully the Cerinthe and Marigolds aren't planted out yet - but I think my onions are done for!
