All That's Missing is the Wizard of Oz!
Posted by Francesca
Yesterday on Martha’s blog, she showed photographs of the devastation that occurred at our farm from last week’s twister. Sharkey and I wanted to share some more photos on our blog. Please take a look.
1 Franny, do you remember the tall white pine that was knocked over in last week's storm? Wilmer looks a little stunned.
2 Well, this is what's left of it. The tree crew sawed off the trunk and plopped the base back into the hole to save all of the beautiful plantings. That must have been hard work.
3 And look at this toppled linden tree! Franny, what are you doing down in that pit?
4 You better not be sniffing out any skunks! Come up here at once!!!
5 Sharkey, don't get in a lather. Why don't we count these tree rings to find out how old this linden tree was?
6 Franny, I thought you were counting. Where are you going now?
7 OK - Let's go around the farm to see more damage.
8 That old maple tree provided a lot of shade for Ramon, Rinze, Meindert, and Rutger out in that paddock. Where will they find their shade now?
9 This tree in the woods looks like it was twisted apart and it's just one of many that are ruined. So, so sad!
10 The grounds crew is taking all of the chopped wood and wood chips up to the composting yard. No shortage of compost, that's for sure!
