Thanks - I can't take any credit for the design. We just bought it at the end of December from 2 retiring Botany professors who spent 30 years working on the yard. They bought a home in New Hampshire actually.
We are having the same thing w/ the wind! They just had a warning come across the tv that is in effect until 6 tonight. I have an acre and a half of land and the 1/2 acre surrouds both sides of the house and the back. We've already had several big tree limbs come down - one up in the tree that's hanging over the power lines (I better not lose my power... I'm watching my soaps right now!). Last year we have a HUGE (like 100' high I think my husband said) poplar tree come down. It was so loud and so scary - luckily it missed the house by about 15 feet! I'm hoping we don't have another episode like that!
If I remember correctly, I think the winds in NH today are supposed to be much worse than I am having in my little corner of Massachusetts. We have quite a few branches down here ourselves. It actually pretty scary out there right now. It is also starting to rain a little.
"can you ( if you can of course) to take a pic to your back yard? We are having a VERY bad wind storm right now, so I will show you some older pics"
