When a tree falls in the gardens....

...does anybody hear ?

Probably not in this case, as it fell during a short but quite wild storm, so even if you were near it, it's unlikely you'd hear the tree falling over the thunder.

As soon as the storm had passed, I headed out to the Botanic Gardens to survey for damage and see what was photo-worthy.

    Oh, that's sad, but good thing nobody got hurt.

    Despite it not looking like one from this angle, it was a palm tree. The vines covering it probably upset it's delicate balance and the storm was severe enough that it was all too much for the poor tree. But yes, I didn't see any people stuck under it Margot.
