Apart from the log pile which I mention occasionally there are also three individual logs.
The original, fairly substantial one is near the top north-west corner of the plot and was probably the first plot feature. It’s now lost all of it’s bark and looks partly burnt, although it isn’t. I let grass grow along one side whilst next year along the other side I’m going to grow nasturtiums around and over it.
This one is smaller and is partly under the hawthorn. It’s barely visible as I let the grass grow around and over it. From what I remember it’s not very long or thick but it was heavy and I wonder what tree it’s from.
The last is the only practical one, being a log seat. It replaced an earlier one a couple of years ago as it’s about knee high and rather chunky, making it more comfortable to sit on. Mind you I don’t that often, and I think that the robin makes far more use of it as a perch.
Apart from being features, or more practical, they are all invaluable for various insects. That’s especially true of a log pile, which if you’ve not got one is worthwhile even if it’s just a small one.
Have a good weekend.
