I left my Georgia Garden for a second trip to Tennessee to assist my parents after their house flooded in May. Things there are moving slowly but they now have walls.Hopefully, this week the AC/Heat Unit and duct work will be installed as well as some tile work taking place. My parents spirits are up but they so want to be back in their home.
One evening while leaving their neighborhood, I spotted this turkey taking a stroll along a lily filled driveway. That put a smile on my face....
Before we took off to Tennessee, we had a really bad storm with lightening hitting a Willow Oak tree in our yard.
I was amazed to see what a strike of lightening can do to a tree.
It blew this birdhouse right off the tree and it was secured with screws! Luckily, no birds were calling this house home at the time. Our Cable TV was also damaged as well as one television inside the house. The Cable was repaired and the TV will be discarded at the recycle center.
Look at that beautiful Oak wood inside this tree. In time the tree will die and it is too close to the house so she must come down, Sigh. On Thursday, I will show you the rest of the story of this LIGHTENING STRUCK TREE, In the Garden...
