Gone With the Wind

We had a little wind storm a couple of weeks ago (late posting... again) and were lucky to sustain only minor damage. Looking at these pictures you would think it was worse.

This tree branch came straight down and impaled itself into the ground.





The wind snapped the pole on one of our umbrellas and sent it flying into the neighbours yard...

and sent the cast iron urn hurtling as well. As you can see from the load in the pickup, the rest of the damage was minimal, just a few small branches. We're thankful - it could have been a lot worse.

We had a thunder, rain and wind storm yesterday that destroyed my garden umbrella (same as yours). We sure have had a wet and wild summer so far. Stop by and visit The Gardener Side of me to see what happened to my garden.
