A few years ago, during hurricane Isabel, one of the trees in my garden fell. I had to have it cut for easy removal, but I decided to leave the stump there.
Every year different plants grow and bloom on it throughout spring and summer. Some daffodils [that used to be planted at the base of the tree] already bloomed on top of this stump. And violets are in bloom there right now.
A few toads live underneath it, too.
