More hailstones

That was a really fierce bombardment yesterday, but our winter pansies and violas shrugged it off like the toughies that they are.

the storm was amazing, the hailstones were enormous, looked like a fishmongers counter where they all fell off the conservatory roof, we had a brief power outage too.

great photos.

I left some pansies in from last year tucked in the beds and they have all come back, was quite surprised.

The hailstones built up in the gutters of my house, and then fell over the top in great clumps - couldn't see the patio or lawn for a complete covering of white.
The lightening was spectacular!! :AA
