Kia hora te manno
Kia whakapapa paumamu te moana
Kia tere te Karohirohi

May the calm be widespread
May the sea glisten like the greenstone
And may the glimmer of summer dance across your pathways

Wind storm damage

I guess we are lucky the only thing that crashed to the ground is this old Lilac. 

It snapped off right down near the ground

The lilac was stopped from crushing the fence by landing in the fork of a forsythia growing beside it.

The trunk of the lilac is now cut into fireplace lengths, and the rest waiting to be carted off to the burn pile.

It is unfortunate that you lost the lilac, but as you mention, at least it didn't take anything else with it. It sounds like the forsythia got an extra pruning. At least it is a good time of year to be stocking up on firewood.

Oh what a shame Jennifer. Maybe it will get sprouts around the root this spring.

Wow! Must have been quite the wind storm!

Hopefully it will send up shoots. I'm glad nothing else happened. Take care.

That must be a mighty storm to topple old lilac... Glad everything else alright.
