Very High Winds. We do get them here and the greenhouse has been caught again. Sometimes the strong winds come up the entry passage between me and next door's back garden with more force than required. This time we seem to have lost the roof panel totally - it's not glass and we usually find it parked over the back hedge in the communal grass area. Not this time.

That's a shame - hope you find the panel :/

I feel your pain, Flo. We never retrieved one of the sheets of polycarbonate when the polytunnel blew down a few years back. I just hope it didn't do any damage on the way to wherever if finally landed.
If we ever manage to get this dome constructed it will be much less of a problem. Hopefully. :roll:

I think we've all got high winds today... Unfortunately, I won't see whether anything has gone AWOL before Sunday!
