Mother Nature at Work

The intense rain and wind in October 2021 caused an oak tree in my neighbor’s yard to fall and damage my fence and raised beds.  The first picture, September, shows the mature shrubs growing in the corner of yard.  The other pictures show the fallen tree and damage.  Most shrubs in this area had to be severely cut back or removed.
