Sad day as we bid farewell to The Grandson Tree.

|On 2nd June 2006, we heard a loud bang in the middle of the night. It was not until the following morning that we realised that the large cedar had shed a massive branch. It missed Neil & Louise's hire car by inches|
Euan who was aged 22 months at the time insisted
on helping us to clear away the branches so we could get out of the
Quite important as I think they were flying back to Australia that day
|When the tree surgeons arrived we asked them to sculpt the trunk rather than felling the whole lot|
The trunk became a feature of the garden - now
referred to as 'The Grandson Tree'.
Many birds (woodpeckers, tits etc) and animals made it their home .
But first it rotted away.
Then the recent storms made it lean at an angle. In the interests of H&S we had to have it felled.
Still deciding what to put in its place. Another tree is difficult unless we remove the stump completely - not easy!
