Over the last month though storms have started to slowly set in, signalling a change in season. Wind and rain has been pounding and we've lost a couple of trees. One old apple tree in the back field was pulled up by its rotten roots and toppled. And our 'watch tree' met it's final demise.
The watch tree was a standing dead snag that the crows loved to perch on and watch the proceedings in the yard. Even though the top had already broken off it was still much taller than the other trees around it.
After the high winds the watch tree is no more.
This last week the temperatures have finally dipped below freezing on a regular basis and it seems winter has finally come. And with it comes Christmas, a new season to look forward to with all that it brings.
