Daily Domesticity... My Log Flower Bed 🌼

🌼My Log Flower Bed🌼, also lovingly known as 'The Deer Buffet'.🦌

This was a true labor of love from my hubby. The log is from our property, and I cannot even begin to imagine how much it weighs...enough that after he had hollowed it out with an axe and chainsaw, he had to haul it with our Suburban and a heavy chain to its resting place. Then he and our 15 year-old wrestled and maneuvered it to the exact spot that I asked them to. This was no easy task to say the least. I was even reminded a couple of times during the process that 'we are not changing around furniture in a room, ya know...this thing is HEAVY.' Haha. 😁
All turned out well in the end, and this became the final result, which I love! πŸ’•

Only problem...the local deer love it just as much as I do, and consider it their own personal dinner buffet. I kid you not. I have caught them red-handed with my pentunias hanging out of their mouths. Luckily that usually only happens closer to the fall, when all the sweet grass and leaves start to become scarce. At least I get to enjoy it for a couple of months before they stop by for their
'all you can eat' special. πŸ’•πŸ˜ŠπŸŒΈπŸŒΉ
