After a long, cold winter, I am ready plant, move rocks, and make borders. The yard is an endless palette of fluid possibility. I have two tall tree stumps that I wanted to transform into something more interesting. I placed a large black ceramic ball on one and what I did with the other is shown in the photo below. While my terrible table legs (too long of a story of kapa-kai half-inch bolts and worse) sat in a drawer, I was conjuring a new job for them. Since they couldn’t support a piece of furniture like they were designed to, they are now banned from the house and reluctantly have taken up their new purpose in life screwed into a tree stump. Visual support for my imposing pumpkin-orange planter. I’m contemplating what to plant. Any ideas? I’m thinking blue or lavender could top it off nicely, but I’m open.
