Vancouverites have had an interesting start to spring. Lots of rain, I am talking lots! In the last 32 days, 30 have rained. On the days it did not rain, it snowed. And then the winds came this weekend. Now I love a breezy day, they are great, get a jacket on and go for a walk. Refreshing, very refreshing. But.....
This is the roof line for my house. That is a tree in the front yard. There are more, lots more in the back yard and across the fence. The fence is the property line between my yard and the school yard. When you have big trees like this, and get 50+ mile an hour winds, you get this......
Branches and bramble 6-8 feet long are scattered all over the yard. Plus a lot of small stuff, ends and pieces. You may have noticed the roof is also covered in small stuff and lots of needles. Needles rain down in the wind.
The larger branches slumped up against the fence, are on the school yard side. We use to get the big ones coming down in a wind storm as well. until we had the the bottom 20 feet of limbs removed. As a point of reference, the bottom 20 feet started at 50 or 60 feet off the ground.
Some how the weeding does not seem like such a big project anymore!
As always thanks for stopping by.
I appreciate your visits and your comments.
