with this wonderful stump in my back yard.

[Linked Image]

I have tons of different mosses on it (Wee Willie would have to tell me what and how many kinds and if lichens are included) and I set a turtle rain gauge on it. But I still don't know what to plant around, or over it or whatever. I think it is so cool looking but my husband wants to pull it out!!!!!! eek eek

Is it old enough to dig out holes in it? You could fill the holes with dirt and plants stuff in 'em.
Or level off some of the tops and place pots on them.
Too bad you live so far North - it looks like a perfect place for orchids......

We have a stump in our yard that is planted with ivy. The ivy doesn't take over because we mow it when we cut the grass. I'll take a picture of it tomorrow when it is light.

One question...does the stump lay on it's side like that all the time? Or was it already pulled out when you took the picture. I couldn't quite tell.

Hi I just found a nursery that I like for ferns and moss and stuff. Maybe there would be something there that would be useful.

Why not get some innoculant for shiitake mushrooms or some other mushroom of your choice.

Some big mushrooms would look great, and add to your table as well.

How about building a gazebo over it.... wink
.... think of all the hanging flower pots u could hang from from it and the plants u could place around it.... Duh

I thought about doing a raised garden over an abandon unused well i had once.... I think my "ex" father-in-law finally buried it... laugh

Actually, if it was mine, i would either pull it up, grind it up, or bury it.... angell
