This is what we woke up to this morning!!! We arrived last night in the dark and did not see this until today. This probably happened on Tuesday, when there was a big storm and fierce winds. It couldn’t have happened last night, we would have heard something!
Our willow is a magnificent tree, probably at least 200 years old or maybe even older. I showed you pictures of it when we stayed up here for a week in July. I’m not sure if you get the massiveness of this limb that broke off – it’s really like a third of the tree! But thank goodness, two-thirds of it is still standing. Perhaps this is nature’s way of insuring that what’s left will be healthy and strong and keep on going for another 100 years? I sure hope so as we love this tree.
