Just a Stump?

I realize that to some,
maybe even most,
a tree stump is just
a stump.

But when I look at them,
my imagination takes over.


Can't you just imagine something curling up in there for protection?



Do you see a face?
Or an animal?






I'm sure a few fairies reside here.


So what do you think?

Hi Jill... the first one is surely a home for a little raccoon family, the second one is a garden gnome who watches over everything and the third one is definitely the fairies abode... thanks for sharing, xoxo Julie Marie

The second looks a little like a baboon face, and the third? I actually think it might be a gnome's home;) Bonnie

I think the tree stump is magnificent and home to fairies.

I agree with you that a stump is NEVER just a stump. :))

Debbie said...

an interesting tree stump for sure, i hope someone is calling it home!!

i see a heart, at the top of #2 and for some reason #3 reminds me of the wish bone from a turkey on thanksgiving dinner!! weird...??

There's always something going on inside a stump- usually something creepy and crawling.

Love these photos and yes, stumps make my imagination run wild! Keebler elves maybe??

You are very creative . . . I see a Guernsy cow in the middle photo. see the nose, one ear on the right . .

My hubby searches out things like this and brings them home for the woods. I will see if I can take some photos . . .

I don't think there are any fairies, just chipmunks in our woods!

Paula said...

Lynne beat me to it but thats what I was going to say for number two--a cow. 'Course I do have cows on the brain as you probably know. lol

Jackie said...

I'm sure there is a snake in the stump, I see a cow's head in the 2nd photo, and I'm most certain the fairies are sleeping.

Gloria Hood said...

I saw the cow also! I would love to make a little fairie house!

Interesting spots indeed :)

I like how hollowed out stumps provide shelter for those critters -- interesting finds, Jill!

Susan said...

Oh I'm sure fairies live in the last photo! Love these!

I just hope you don't get bit! Just kidding - I did see an animal or something in the wood of that tree. sandie

Yes, a perfect spot for some lizards or something wanting a home. I love that gnarled tree trunk too.
