How wrong could you be !

The gardeners show up to deal with the fallen cypress trees. Three are hauled away. The others staked up, trimmed and where needed cut back by 50%. Loic also shows up to blow leaves.

There is also a man on one of those telescopic arms to stand and bark at. If only there were Jaffa cakes.
