Just a Thread to show Hail Damage.

Well about 8:30 PM we got the worst weather a big leaved plant lover can get.
HAIL and Lots of it.
NO Structual damage that I've heard of though so...

The Hosta, Gunnera and Petasites were hit hard.
The leaves are all still tender fairly new growth.
AND we were having a banner year.
Now most are perforated.

We had this happen about 5 years ago so I know the worst damage won't show for days yet.

Here's a little taste.

Yikes not a new thread for the Group.
Just one to post damage shots so I didn't overload the Main Thread which is still here.

Ric, thanks for starting a new thread! I can't believe how much damage the rain did to your plants!You and Robyn must be devastated. My heart goes out to you, hoping the plants will come back to life.
Mau, your granddaughters are so beautiful! You were right, the squash really got squashed in the mud...yuck!
Pepper, your grandmother's irises are great!
Rann, better you didn't feel the earthquake!
Today has stopped raining, but look what clouds were yesterday when I got back home from work.

I hope most of the plants recover, Ric. Such a shame when hail hits so hard.
