We had a short storm blow through here Sunday afternoon.
Not a thunderstorm, but a few strong gusts of wind.
Enough to bring down this big chunk of our old willow.
We were thankful the heavy trunk part fell on the lawn, and all the leafy stuff fell on the flower bed.
This happens regularly. Our big ol’ willow has lost a lot of big branches over the years.
So Monday morning this was our first job on the list.
As more branches are cut back, I am always anxious to see how much damage was done underneath.
I had a dead corkscrew hazel that was some cool garden art. It was really demolished.
Some big branches on my Magnolia tree got broken off.
A few hostas got a little squished.
But really, not much damage to anything else.
In about an hour, it was all cleaned up.
And it was time for coffee.
