Wintry Chard

Rainbow chard – sown last Summer – still going strong in the garden, but caught in the midst of blustery winds and hail a couple of days ago.

Storm Ciara came and went last weekend and she wasn’t quite as bad in our area as forecast.  We have actually had stronger winds and heavier rain and hail since she left our shores.  Yesterday was the calmest and brightest day for quite a while – very Spring-like, but it’s not due to last; Storm Dennis is on the way for the coming weekend.

I had difficulties choosing which Chard image to post out of several quite similar so I thought I would pop some of the others together below:
