Chain saws in the Park!
Just a quick blog to show you what they have been doing in our Park! Just inside the entrance to the car park, and next to the gates leading to the formal part of the park, there used to be a beautiful beech tree. That has been cut down, half way up, and an owl now sits on top of it!
Now as chain saw sculpture goes, it is good. But I think I would rather have the tree! The Council employees told me that the tree was supposed to be diseased and had to come down. Doesn't look diseased to me, and if it was, how come they can leave all the roots in the ground?
As the owl is in the formal bit of the park (tennis courts, flower beds, bowling greens and all that) it looks OK, I suppose. But the kingfisher (you had spotted that, hadn't you?) is next to the lake, and I think very much out of place. Again, why leave half a tree if it had to come down? Its a lovely kingfisher, but not there!
Rumour has it that a frog will appear atop of another tree that has been cut down. I await the chain saw man to see whereabouts he will do his carving!
