Raining here again, half the garden is under water and my beautiful huge, old Bramley apple tree fell down half crushing a Magnollia. The only good thing about all this is the ferns I ordered arrived today which all love water. The loss of the tree means I have a huge new sunny area and although it is underwater I have had the apple tree cut into long logs that I can carry and so I have used them to edge a new bed where the tree was. The trunk has been cut into about 2 ft lengths which I have started rolling into a shrub bed. They look fantastic in among the shrubs as they have beautiful rings, gnarls and holes. I hope it stops raining tomorrow as the new ferns which were intended for the garden are now going to be planted in the holes in the old trunk bits of the apple once I have finished rolling the trunk bits.
