A Piece of Art or Just an Old Stump??? That is the Question....

Much to my dissappointment our new house has no flowers or flowerbeds already here and waiting for me to play in.  So.....I am having to start from scratch and make my own.  I had Earl till in front of the house and around this tree stump for my big flower bed.  I figured I could decorate the stump somehow and it would be fine there.  It is fine, but as I started digging to plant some flowers, I found lots of really big roots that were attached to the stump.

Here's what the stump looked like before I started.

and here's what it looks like after hours of digging around the roots.  The picture doesn't look as cool as it looks in person, but I think this stump and roots are going to look so cool when I get done.  I still have a lot more digging to do!  I am going to clean off the roots and hopefully find some beautiful rocks down at the creek to put in and around the stump.  Earl looked at me really strange and I think that the people that are driving by probably think I'm some nut case that thinks she's actually going to get that stump dug out of the ground with her little hand shovel.  I think I am going to have a unique and beautiful piece of yard art though.  I'll keep you updated with pictures as I progress this week.  I'm so excited to see how it turns out!

What do you think?
