I love a stump.

I have admitted to loving the tree below and no one has put me in a straight jacket. I'll go one step further and let's see what happens.

I love the rotting remains of a tree!

I even have it prominently displayed by the front door of my home!

I love the detail in its silvered carcass.

I use it for the desktop background on my computer.

Do normal people get excited about a tree, or a stump?

Only when you can split it into firewood!

Thanks for the comments! When you live in Iowa with flat cornfields as far as the eye can see, you find beauty where you can. I'm no tree hugger either. I can cut and burn trees with the best of them. But, you have to admit my stump has character.

I like old stumps like that, I have seen a few, but way way to heavey to put in the back of my truck! I also like rocks! but again the ones I want are to heavy for the truck. I have carried rocks in my hand carry as I could not leave them behind!
