Three trees

The high winds over Wednesday night brought down three of our trees.

None of them were ones we would have expected and all were in our garden.

The hawthorn cracked the roof of the workshop. The lilac was finally pulled out of the ground after surviving at a steep angle for many years. The cherry was fairly young and had never been very sound.

On Thursday, we cut away most of the branches then called in the professionals to chip the spoils and to cut down the thicker trunks with a chain saw.

I did a patch repair on the roof before it rained.

Shelley, with only a little help, managed to remove the large hawthorn stump on Friday. She also made good the grass where I had removed the broken paved area.

Now tidy again and ready for some new plants.
