Hurricane Wilma and Paradise
October 24, 2005 - Click images to enlarge

Though Wilma was nothing like last year's storms, it did more damage to the garden than we expected. We think our Victoria season may have come to an abrupt end. The only damage to the house was some water from leaky front doors, new last year.
