This year we had a couple weekends in a row during August with severe thunderstorms accompanied by dreadful straight line winds. Yesterday, yet another front came through with strong winds and I'm glad it's time to dig into getting the containers disassembled and put away for the season because I've never had this many blow over before. I just spent a half hour or so assessing the damage and I've got a pile of stuff to pick up so many damanged plants. Sigh.
