One Thousand Tree's felled in Winter Storms

We had more than a surprise on one of our walks with Freya this week.

 One of our usual walking haunts has lost over a thousand tree's in our Winter storms.

The before,

and the after photo's.

A few years ago Haldon Forest near Exeter held a painting exhibition high in the trees.
Happier days for some of the tree's.

At least it's good to see someone has a sense of humor.

It's been a busy week at Soggibottom.
Another Soggibottom bear is about to make her way over our little bridge to Texas.
It will be quite strange for the little bear to see some sunshine, I might have to send a pair of sunglasses with her.

You can find Freya over at Cat Flap Cavalier.

Have a great  St David's Day, hope there are lots of rainbows in your weekend:-) xxx

What a shame about the trees. I was living in Kent when the hurricane hit and the number of trees down was so sad.

Hope the bear likes it over the pond.

Lovely rainbow.

Storms can be tough on the tree roots, we had a lot of that in the last few years.

That's hard to look at all of that tree damage - what a shame.

Your rainbow is beautiful! Its been a long time since we saw a rainbow!
Its very sad to see a tree fall,, I imagine it gave a big thud when it hit the ground!
That cute little bear will be sooo happy in its new home- we just know it!

Joanna said...

I mourn for the trees, too. Beautiful little bear and rainbow. That's cheery.

So sad about the trees.. Was it high winds or rain or both probably..
Hope your bear has a good xo

It is always sad when trees blow over. We had a couple storms last year in our area that took a bunch of our trees. Not 1000 but several hundred in our little area.

That's always sad to see, but it's part of the cycle of nature. It's certainly a pretty place!

Marg said...

Wow, those storms really tore those trees up. That is t to bad. Hope those storms have gone away now. You have great week end.

It is always sad to see trees blown down like that, with their roots up in the air. New growth will spring up though and it will be beautiful again.

Such a shame about the trees and we have lost a few too sadly. Have a serene Sunday and get in some big easy today.
Best wishes Molly

How sad. Hope they plant some new ones for future generations to enjoy.

How very sad to loose many of those lovely trees... This winter has been a rough one for many areas of our globe.

Oh no! How sad - your forests were just breathtakingly beautiful. Hopefully after the clean up there are a fair amt of healthy trees left.
