Trash and Treasure

All this time I was wanting to have a dried tree stump to mount my tillandsias and bromeliads. But it was hard to find one where I am. Despite that I keep looking and just last Friday I found a perfect looking dried tree in the dump near my home. Perhaps it was discarded because the previous owner had found it could not re-grow.
Here's my found.


The "tree" was perfectly trimmed. Moreover, there are several "crevices" on the trunk which will be ideal for planting.
I'm hoping to turn it into a beautiful mount for my plants. Indeed, if you keep searching, chances are you'll find it, whatever it is!

Thanks, Larry. I've planned to do the mounting next week. Stay tuned.

That's a choice find. A very artistic shape to base your plant arrangements. Like Larry I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with it. :-D
