Do love Stumpery...although didn't call it that, it was just a pretend untamed bit in the various gardens.

Large logs, surrounded by different creeping plants that also crawl up and over them, different seasonal bulbs, wild flower seeds, then allowed to naturalise. Such an interesting feature at any time of the year, always gives the feeling of a piece of forest somehow.

Insects and small wild animals always love them, for birds they seem to end up as a never ending buffet :D, and one log actually grew fungi, which was a bit of a surprise, no idea how that happened...
