Tree Stump Toadstool
So I do have a chain saw but I am not allowed to use it with good reason. I have a weak, broken right wrist which sometimes pinches and makes me drop things so not good to be wielding a piece of machinery that could take out a limb. Or two.
However, I have tree stumps where someone else wielded a chain saw and left tree remnants in various garden spots. Enter this one particular stump that now sits in the middle of one of my hillside flower beds.
I have used this tree stump for a variety of uses from holding a plastic pot bottom full of water for my nearby bees to a summer plant stand. None of them seemed to fit the bill so I started looking for a piece of wood I could place on top.
The initial idea was to use something that would make this old tree stump into a garden table but I found a wonderful cut down piece that in proportion has turned the cut down tree stump into a favorite busy garden visitor, toadstool. It helps that the top wooden pieces is a different color than the light gray bottom, encouraging the toadstool vibe.
Whenever I walk by, I smile so I know this is the right top for the tree stump.
Now on to the next one!
