Artist of the Week: Stump

John is this week's artist.

He has been very industriously digging around the roots of stump in our yard. The stump is a left over from Hurricane Isabel in 2003.

We lost quite a few trees and we have a couple of stumps on our property. We were lucky that the trees fell into the woods and not onto our lawn or our house. Since the stumps were not actually in the way we decided to let them be. The kids and dogs all think this is a great idea and I'll often see them playing on or around the stumps.

Yesterday John got a real bee in his bonnet over one of the stumps and decided to really clear out the soil around the roots.

I went out to take a look and I was impressed with his work. It is amazing how much dirt a dachshund can move when they want to. I don't know what motivated him, maybe there were some mice living in and around the roots. John certainly not going to tell me.
