This is my entry in the "OUCH" category.

View of the street, sixty feet away, from our front window during a recent hailstorm; those guys are BIG.

This Image shows what was striking the asphalt shingles. Yes, the roofer's will be replacing the entire roof. :mad:
The largest hailstone was nearly 2.5 inches AFTER 15 minutes of a drenching, warm rain; so it may have been substantially larger.
This was the worst hailstorm in my memory, spanning more than 80 years of living all over our USA.

We recently visited a private garden as part of the National Gardens Open Day scheme, where individuals open their gardens for the public to view, with entry fees going to charities.
Unfortunately, I misread the magazine advert and turned up a week early.
The lady owner allowed us to view as long as we ignored "the mess".
There was a large skip outside with lots of material in, from trimming and tidying and we had to step over quite a bit of trimmings too.
However, we thought the garden was splendid, so here's a quick tour for you.

This was a huge oak tree at the end of the garden, probably about 70 feet tall, with the rambling rose (Kiftsgate I believe) at least half was to the top.

A lovely quiet sheltered area for if there's time to relax.
