Continuing Tree Saga

Poor Echinecea, just at the height of their bloom. I hope they survive the trauma.



Here is a video of Joe and Evan removing the broken half of the tree.

Back to normal with half the Russian Olive missing.


Why we still need to prune the tree. Rather grotesque, don't you think? It will be a nice small tree again when we get rid of that tall, lopsided limb.



Here is what the border looks like now with the broken limb removed. The plants are mostly standing back up but don't look as good as before. At least when we had a bit of hail one day it did not do much damage to what was left. Notice the drunken looking sunflower in the center. ChoCho still seems to admire it.
