The wind has not abated, it has got stronger. I have had to leave the car on the track as I cannot get the gates to stay open. The rose bushes are flailing around. I hope they stay strong and flexible particularly as they have lots of buds.
I'm going to have to dig out my beanie hat for the dog-walk - nothing worse than earache.
Otherwise it is a bright day, a few clouds making their way across the sky.
