Yesterday the children were so dramatic...
... when a tree fell down at the back of our garden.
It really was no big deal really, and as it turned out the tree was rotten right through,
so the wind (the howling, biting, icy cold wind) ...
probably did us a favour anyway.
I love how nature has a way of taking care of things ;)
But it is sad to think this will be the tree's last ever spring & also sad that a fair number of birds will have to rebuild their nests; we counted at least a dozen nests in that tree in various states of use and disuse.
Baby wasn't sure he like the cold so much, but insisted on being in on the action.
