The Tree, the Fence and the Garden

Yes that's it. Last night we experienced a middle of the night electrical storm along with the wind and rain. This style of storm is no usual in Auckland so it was all very scary in our house as the two boys woke up to the orchestra of noise at midnight.

Up the next morning and everything was in its place and looking good despite the bad weather.

Off to work I go like on any ordinary day of relief teaching and I get a txt from DH saying can you ring me. I cant as class is in, then a message saying the tree has fallen down and taken the fence out.

So the sight when I got home was....

Of course you need the view from all angles so here they are.

The roots that lifted out of the ground.

The wide view from the otherside of the fence. Luckily it was our fence.

Then there would be no drama if there were no other plants involved.

Stuck in the olive tree.

and finally flattening the plants
