Squirrels have their own ideas about what makes a good stumpery. "Feeding platforms, a must-have!"
This is what remains of our old falling tree problem.
Turkey-tailish fungi march up one side and down the next.
I only learned about stumperies earlier this week, when a friend sent me an article about the one on Vashon Island. (Pat Riehl, the owner of that one, will be speaking at the B'ham Fern Society lecture in May.)
Trying to google images of stumperies brought me to an interesting blog, the Folly Fancier, who had featured this stumpish superstructure.
I saw that FF had also written about the Lupercale grotto, another coincidence, since of course Lupercalia starts tomorrow.
And a dog nicknamed Stump just won the Westminster dog show.
