My Oak Tree

My Oak Tree

Unusually I wasn’t looking forward to coming home this evening and when I arrived my worst fears were realised… I wonder if the tree surgeons will be back tomorrow they seem to have missed a branch!! The birds that usually flit and fly around the tree seemed rather confused and were flying around at low level in among the greenery in my garden. I hope I didn’t disturb them too much when I was out taking a few photographs.

There is a small positive note in that I will now be able to see stunning sunsets as I sit at my computer which in recent years had been concealed by branches and foliage. Exchanging one beauty for another…

    Some twigs survive to grow another day. Libations to the garden nymphs might help.

    is this done by regulation? or is there owner’s consent involved? your comment about the confused birds was very interesting.

      Well the council had been brought in to look at it after a branch fell a few weeks ago. But I am not convinced the work has been done to regulation. The tree was healthy and had a preservation order on it!

    Is this when we say “when one door closes, another opens?” :)

  5. Someone please rescue that poor tree, the ivy is strangling it!

    Wow, that seems a bit radical.
