My better half is always bringing stuff home that he found at the side of the road. I don’t know about other women, but I enjoy a good challenge. Ninety percent of the time I can turn this roadside trash into treasure.
Just recently the Parks and Rec crew from the Town Hall were across the street at the empty lot cutting down trees. I was home at the time and didn’t even notice. Pat, on the other hand spied the mess when he came home from work and went over for a look-see. he came home with this specimen and wondered what I could do with it.
Obviously it was screaming out to become the latest planter in my garden.
First off it needed a base, so Pat got to work.
Now it is my turn. Fill with loamy soil (I put in some miniature daffodil bulbs first), grab a few plants from the garden, squeeze in as many as you can and voila, latest addition to the patio.
Get the old man to carry it to the bottom of the garden because it weighs a ton.
Fiddle about for twenty minutes deciding where to put it.
As this stump decomposes it should provide the plants (all perennials) with nutrients for quite a few years.
