More blossom and some broken trees

Blossom Tree near the Hagley Golf Course

Two nights ago, we had gale force winds in Christchurch. It has resulted in quite a few up-rooted trees around the city and further west into rural Canterbury. Many people had wondered if the blossoms on Harper Avenue would survive these strong winds. Well I’m pleased to report they certainly have survived and look remarkably untouched. The same can’t be said for some of the trees around the city though.

This tree is at the Riccarton entrance to the Botanic Gardens and is huge


Our blossom trees have survived our first spring storm
