No gale, but one fallen tree


The gales passed us by, although we did have some high winds.

Unfortunately,  our winter flowering camellia was a casualty

It was, I think quite old and had been looking sickly since we moved here.

Sad that it fell down – but it gives me a planting opportunity.

  1. A planting opportunity – a gardener’s dream.
    So you experienced a miniature version of the “Great Storm of 1987”, fallen tree and all (lol).
    I found an empty sack blown into my drive which was nowhere near as exciting!

  2. Eeek – don’t mention that storm. I lived in a wood then – and I cannot tell you how many trees we lost. we had no power for over 2 weeks!

    Oh no. Now we start another debate on what you do with your new planting opportunity!! Have you decided what to do with the last one yet? Decisions, decisions.

  4. Sorry about the tree. As a child of the desert and prairie, though, I am somewhat less sentimental about trees than most. If a tree goes down, think, “Sunshine!”

  5. Hi Dobby, and Susan.

    Dobby – as this is the area where all the builders “stuff” is, I think it can wait until next year – which will give me lots of thinking time.

    Susan – I think I am less sentimental than some folk regarding trees, I have often taken them down when they are in the wrong place – too close to buildings, outgrown their space etc.

    Thanks for stopping by
