gardening around my new tree stump
A moment of silence for the silver maple that came down in my front yard last week.... It was dying and threatening the house.
My wife and I decided to leave a large stump. It is a memorial to the tree that is gone, it is architectural to anchor a front yard garden and it is practical, because grinding the stump would cost money and make planting in that area infeasible for a few years.
Basically, I want to share this picture with you and solicit feedback. I think it will be great next year to see the stump surrounded with perennials and color, etc.
I may also put a pot on top of the stump OR dig out a bit of the stump and plant directly inside the rotting stump.
BTW, why is there not a tree forum here on GardenWeb?
