My #treeyear – my two trees in action

I am slowly playing around with my movie programme on my Mac. I took the following video on my little Canon Ixus last weekend on a grey windy afternoon.

What I like about the video that a photo graph can’t really show is the wind. My two trees are exposed to our South Westerlies. In fact the storm/hurricane of 1987 came crashing across the Sussex and Surrey countryside and hit the trees full on. There was another Lime then. The storm felled it. Because between where the trees stand there is nothing between here and the South Downs. I know what is like for when there is a a gale my house shakes like a small boat on a tempestuous sea!!

Hence the Hurricane Patch beneath the Lime.
