After a storm a few weeks ago blew this tree down in the goat yard–
–we were left with firewood….
….and a big stump.
The tree used to be our “bird feeder” tree, and I really miss it.
We put the bird feeders back up temporarily on a smaller tree, which Glory Bee and the chickens have been enjoying.
The bird feeders are going back up, higher, on a new pole that’s just been put in at the spot where the tree was located. Glory Bee and the chickens are enjoying them way too much where there are.
And I like having the birds feeders right there, closer to the house. It’s far enough away that the birds aren’t skittish about our movements on the porch, but close enough to watch them and to zoom in with my camera to take pictures.
Meanwhile, we have this giant stump. The stump was torn completely out of the ground, so it can be moved and placed (with a tractor) anywhere.
We could toss it over the hill or– We could do something with it. The goats would enjoy it right where it is, but…. The most obvious idea is to put a flower pot on top of it. Or we could turn it into the pedastal of a rustic bird bath–all it needs is a big, decorative saucer on top. We could screw down some kind of garden art on top of it. Or it could be a garden chair! Cleaned up and polished, it could even make the base of a coffee table on the porch. Or–
I could stand on top of it and make stump speeches to my staff.
Okay, forget that.
We could plant the American flag in it and pretend we’re on the moon!
Anyone have any other ideas? Cuz I’m stumped.
