After reading Amy’s blog on the felling of her conifers, and the newly formed poles that are left, it reminded me of a similar situation that had arisen at Normanby Hall country park near us. Knowing we would be meeting up at the end of the week, I went to take pics of the beautifully carved totem pole that had once been a living tree. I’d said to Amy to bring her camera, I was going to show them pics of the totem pole, but we chatted that much, I forgot all about them…Lol! Here’s the pics and two of us too….:o))

A beautiful sunny morning, and the trees are colouring up already.

Here are the carvings on the totem pole, I especially like the carved bat.

Callicarpa looking its best.

Here we are, us two and hubbies, it was great meeting after all this time….:o))

What a smashing afternoon we shared, thanks to GoY!

How lovely for you all to meet up, looks as if you all got on really well.
We have not yet decided what to do with the trunk of the Robinia, my first thought was to carve a totem pole, as it would look good in our tropical area, just need some tools, could be a long job.....lol

Thanks Carole, Cat and Moti....:))
Bloomer and Flori....we are lucky to have such lovely peeps on here aren't we, that's because we're gardeners, so may people think it's boring don't they???
They are Hywel, it was like we'd known them for years...:))
Lol Dd.....maybe you could carve a clematis growing up it, or plant one, that would be much easier...lol!
Thanks Gmage and Junna...:))))
