Those who decided that a Lightning Strike was the cause of the appearance of the oak in What Could Have Caused This? were correct.
The tree had already been damaged in a previous storm but this is all that remains after an electrical storm 2 weeks ago.
Most of the debris had been removed by park rangers, and those who identified saw cuts were also correct, long surface strips having been peeled back and in need of trimming away.
The clue was Lightning Strike spelled backwards with alternate letters missing, only I managed to spell lighting incorrectly in the first place, so the letters shown were inaccurate.......sorry.
Thanks to Dave {WhiteRose1} for putting me right.
My thanks to all who commented and offered humorous causes, e.g. an elephant, two beavers with a chain saw and Mick's friend Big Agi in need of a toothpick.........all great fun.

Today, just a simple snap of a Peace rose after a brisk shower, captured in situ in the garden with the soil as backdrop.

Ronnie.
