I had finished taking a break from the garden, stepped outside to get back to it and.... crack, crack crack WHUMP! Nothing quite as startling as the sound of a ~4'-5' diameter (BIG!) tree falling very
close to you to get the heart pumping!
Another 15' over and the tree literally could have taken out about 16 hives. (right click & view image for full size images)
Thankfully, none of the hives were even slightly disturbed. The fence didn't fare so well.
If you look closely you can see the Bengal kittah (also pictured above) making her way up the fallen tree here
The Pharaoh hound is curious as well ("oh look, downed fence = escape!")
Get the stick boy!
Ahh, Spring.. Cherry Blossoms, etc., in bloom... trees falling
Well... close call! I'll be needing some new fencing but I guess I'll have some firewood. :-D
