Logs on Fire

Logs floating along my boom capture seeds from the wind or birds stopping by for a short rest. The result is a natural floating garden.

I call this log Bede after the Bede Corporation kit jet airplane. If you go to their website you'll see the resemblance. Here Bede is sporting several tall fireweeds. You usually find them in disturbed soil such as log slashes. But Bede's sunny location is a close approximation I guess. Plus, there's plenty of water for the roots growing down through his cracks and crevices. -- Margy

  1. That log almost looks like an otter. Imagine those weeds growing there! I see them on the side of the roads all the time. Glad to have you as a friend, Margy, and still hoping to get up your way one of these days! :D

  3. I've see flowers coming thru cracks in concrete and we have a ficus growing from a rock, but I've never seen a natural floating garden. Wow.
