I've got a bit of time on my hand's at the moment. We have managed to go to work as a couple for the last two or three days, but I can only manage half a day of light pruning and stuff.
I get bored easily, and so decided to do something about this piece of wood that's been on the kitchen floor for the last three weeks. Between the chest infection and my latest unfortunate incident, we went for a walk through the RSPB reserve at Arne, and with about a mile to go on our return walk I came upon a rather interesting lump of timber. Obviously sawn a couple of years previously, and just left to rot, it has decayed in such a way as to leave some fantastic shapes. Looking at the grain of the wood and branch stubs etc, I think it may have been a Douglas Fir sapling.
Whatever it was, I had to have it, and so hoisted it onto my shoulder and lugged it all the way back to the van. Sometimes you've just got to do it. It's now undergoing a few coats of clear wood oil, and what we do with it when finished is still up for speculation. A stainless steel tripod stand to hold it upright seems to be a certainty, but after that what......hat stand, mirrored church candle holder, a back lit 'mood object', or simply a stand alone piece of art.
