This is what greeted me when I got home today:
We had a MONSTER rain storm today, heavy rain all day long, pretty windy too. It was just too much for my espaliered Ceanothus to handle. It's a bit top heavy and the weight of the water just pulled the whole thing over. This is what it looked like last week:
I'm thinking we can just prop it back up. The roots seem OK, just popped out of the ground a bit. The bees sure would be bummed to lose this shrub and the back of the house sure would look bare.
