Good afternoon, feeling sad today so I thought I would come on and tell all and maybe get some sympathy. Today we have a very strong wind blowing and it is catching our garden in a place where there is no shelter. Stuart went out to try to get the grass cut and discovered that our l8foot Eucalyptus tree had burst out of the ground as was ready to fall down on our neighbours shed and our fence to we have no choice but to cut it down. The garden looks so bare without it. We have had it for about 15 years and had grown it from a sapling 12 inches tall. I was such a lovely tree and just rustled in the summer breeze but today as it was in full leaf the wind was catching it like a sail on a ship and it was just too much for it. We have left a stump and it should come again but it will take a long time and we are not going to allow it to get so big again. Our fence is on its last legs too the wind today has done more damage than all the winter gales we had earlier this year. So with my sad tale I will say bye for now and hope you have a Happy Easter. We have snow forecast so that’s something to look forward to. By the way Stuart did not get the grass cut, by the time we cut the tree down we were pooped. Bye. Love Joan.
