Wet

There is very little happening in the garden, apart from wind and rain.  The wind has brought down the lilac tree and knocked over our standard olive tree, which needs a sturdier pot and probably does not appreciate the constant watering.  The vegetable patch is a waterlogged bog, which threatens to let our overwintering garlic rot in the ground.  Only the leeks seem to be holding out, and even they are under assault from many small slugs.
