The following photos are nothing for wimps ... don't tell me, that I haven't warned you. It started all on last wednesday evening. When I looked out of the window, I thought: "Snow, okay, I don't mind." On the next morning I remembered, why I detest snow.
What is left of it looks rather harmless. But snow can do otherwise:
Our big garden tree, it's a Prunus cerasifera, lost several of his big branches. Of course they fell on the middle of the street that leads along the house, of course my hubby was already at work, and of course I had to leave for work too ... First I didn't know whether to cry or to spit fire like an angry dragon. Both wouldn't help so I started to cut at least some branches, so that the family, which lives in the farmhouse at the end of the street, could go to work and school too. After that I phoned the gardener from his breakfast at 07.00 am (sorry). This nice guy and his team changed their plans for the day, to get the street cleared. And that was how it looked, when I got home in the evening. Thanks lads, I wouldn't have known, what to do without you.
That is how the tree looked in the summer one year ago.
And this photo is from todays morning.
Well, I guess this branch is lost too.
Bye, bye vintage fence.
No, this wasn't Popeye nor the holy wrath of Lady Gwundergarten ... it's simply the power of nature.
Überreste des Hauswurzstuhles.
Remains from something that was once a Sempervivum chair.
Yes, today I won't be bored, there's lots to do and clean up. From Gwundergarden to chaos garden in only one night.
But there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
There are still some beautiful sights,
... that let me be in peace with this crazy mother nature.
It's not the time to whine, it's the time to spit in your hands and start with the work! LoL, I know, there are people, who say that a garden is always in change ... well, those people better shut up for today.
Habt alle ein Wintersturmfreies Wochenende!
Have a lovely weekend, hopefully without a winter storm!
En liebe Gruess / Take care
