Awh such a sad sight! My amazing #laburnum has come down in all the rain, it’s hard to get the scale from the photo but it was huge! I was relieved to narrowly miss being flooded as it was inches away from coming in the house, and then to find this.. I suppose we won’t be short of logs!

Oh Carol how awful but it would have been so much worse if it had hit the house 😘

Absolutely @jaynehynesburton and that’s what you have to always think isn’t it - could have been worse and that’s nature..

😱oh Carole, sorry to see that! Good to hear the water is away from the house. Salvageable perhaps?

#laburnum on the bank out of harms way, as it's highly poisonous.

Love this tree - it looks fabulous in full flower, however because it's highly poisonous to children and animals it's safely high on the bank across from the stream.. #cleverplanting but not by me 😂
