Wild and Windy on Scilly

We've had a terrible week of weather here on St.Mary's this week, with winds of  90 mph hitting the islands, teamed with high tides and waves of up to 40 feet!

A huge thank you to our pickers and farmers who have been out every day this week, battling the elements to keep up with the cropping Scented Narcissi- yesterday our pickers were picking in 80 mph winds in hail and rain storms!

Unbelievably, we have had minimal disruptions to our deliveries this week, managing with the help of Skybus, to fly the majority of our flowers out on Tuesday morning. We will endeavour to deliver all remaining bouquets on Friday of this week. If you have any questions concerning your order, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us on 01720 423767, or orders@scentednarcissi.co.uk.

Have a look below at some of the stormy pictures taken on the islands last night and this morning- the seas have pushed sand right into the town centre!
