Landscaping around a tree stump

Longtime reader Joe Peach, after reading Wednesday's post about an unexpected and thrilling recent raptor sighting on a tree stump right here at boj World HQ, sent me this link featuring "2,156 Landscaping Around a Tree Stump Home Design Photos."

I'm using only about half in this post, saving the rest for a future entry.


Above and below, exemplars of what can be done with a tree stump.

Originally I was going to create a walking ladder up the side for Gray Cat to come and go up and down my stump, which is about seven feet high.

When, a couple months ago, I declared her indoors only for life, I decided to just leave the stump as is.

Nabbed me a raptor dining experience, it did.

And I suspect it won't be the last.

But future episodes won't feature Gray Cat as the main course.

Here's another use I discovered while living in Cyprus, ca. 1972 (if I can paste here a link for the search: the royal oak cyprus)--it's at the very end of the video and, alas, exists no more:

Ok, Joe - time to dedicate a Dropcam to that stump. Technodolt issues ARE present! A Dropcam doesn't do windows well. Neither are they weatherproof.

I'm certain that you will figure out how to monitor the raptor-roost (and, eventually put to rest the question of species).

That's my use for a tree stump - landscape with 24/7 technology - who knows what nocturnal visitors may visit your corner of the Old Dominion?
