Nothing like opening the door one morning, half asleep and noticing that someone/something moved the apple tree!
Literally – the tree simply fell over.
So lots of time since then has been spent sawing and gathering branches and picking up apples, hundreds of apples … because there’s not much to do to save the tree – just cleanup. Getting there – and finally at least unearthed the huge pot of petunias that had been buried under the branches. I think they just might live.
Can’t say the same for the tree, though.
