Oh Hywel, that's dreadful to watch. I really feel sorry for the chap, after 20 years of hard graft to see it devastated with the water from the flooded river. Good on him for not giving up.

How terrible to see all your hard work, investment and special plants etc just washed away like that.
Makes one realise how lucky we are to live in an area where so little extreme weather ever happens!

this is so sad. I dread to think what is happening to the gardens in York etc.
Several of our members were severely affected by the floods in Somerset too. And people still say global warming isn't happening!

Such a dreadful shame, after all his years of dedication to the garden, his resolve to carry on is understandable, thank you for the link I hadn't seen anything about it on TV despite living in N. Wales. The river Dee in Llangollen is really high and there are flood warnings too.

Thank you all for looking at this link.

I hardly ever watch the news Neena - it seems to concentrate on politics and the health service - very boring :(
I found this on the internet.

Last night I witnessed a horrific building fire in Williamsburg, Brooklyn which took the lives of two people as they slept. Others barely escaped with the clothes on their backs and helplessly looked on as the flames consumed their homes with everything they own.

Seeing your life's work washed away in a flood must be devastating but at least this man will sleep in a nice warm bed tonight. His flowers died but he'll start again.

How dreadful Bathgate :o( It must have been very frightening ...

Fire and floods are awful. There have been floods in many parts of Wales England and Scotland recently. People have had to evacuate their homes and some in ground floor flats have lost everything. Some have even lost their lives in the water.
Many houses will not be habitable again for many months, and many people have lost their
livelyhoods :o(

Wow, that's terrible to hear. I hope you and your family are safe.

Thank you.
We're having extreme weather conditions here this winter. The northern regions of England and Wales are having the brunt of it at the moment, with devastating floods - rivers bursting their banks and bridges and roads being washed away. Thousands of people having to evacuate their homes.

The garden in the link is in North Wales. We live in the south and it's not so bad here. They're forecasting it for us tomorrow ...
