We have a large willow in the garden.
It has buds on it already.
But they won't come to anything because this afternoon the wind blew it over.
Tore its roots out of the ground and made a right mess.
A nice man called Steve came with a JCB and pushed it off the drive.
A shame it's gone.
My twelve year old was philosophical: "circle of life, Mum, circle of life" was all he said.
