the fruit of the tree
























Busy time in my yard! The big tree is finally unfolding into such spectacular objects of desire. Who could say "no" to this really smart wooden sofa?

It's been a long time for the tree lying across my front lawn. Lots of people have hauled away load after load of logs for firewood. Many a fireplace burned this past winter with the treasure from my home. Eventually an 80 ft. long trunk was left and ... "what to do, what to do?" Answering my advertisement for "free wood," Peter the tree artist called me up! And look what he does for a living!

It will cost me if I decide to have him carve or build anything for me; such a hard decision, and who knew it would come to this? I figure at the $ rate of the pieces... I can afford a small wooden plate, maybe. Amazing, this fruit of the tree!

  1. It is quite cool, might need a few cushions though!

  2. I love that bench, pretty cool way of using the trunk. Beauty and function in one.

  3. Love to see that form of wooden artwork. We have someone near us who is carving an angel in a neighbours garden. Looks amazing as we watch it develop day by day - but imagine there will be a hefty bill to pay when it's finished.

  4. Dear Dixie,

    Sofa, so good, eh. Thanks for um keeping a 'log' of events in your life. That's a most impressive looking wooden sofa carving. I would be cautious when sitting. Ouch, needs to be a bit smoother. I've got a splinter in me butt :)

    A peaceful weekend to you, Dixie.

  5. Lost in Space, well said. He's picked out a huge section for an adirondack chair; should be interesting.

  11. Wow. That's cool. If I had something like that in my yard, I'd make sure the ground around it, and possibly the wood itself, was treated to prevent termites. It'd be a same for the bugs to get that beauty.
