That's a fabulous carving, there's some very talented people about.
Yes indeed Jo. Must be great to have such creative ability :)
Not sure what I make of this. It's very slightly creepy.
Maybe my photo is slightly out of focus Esther. I assure you that it wasn't the least bit spooky in broad daylight :)
Very clever,where is it?
Hi Flowerlady. It's in the grounds of the National Trust property at Dunham Massey, Cheshire :)
Somebody's been busy, was it you?
In my dreams Pauline :)
Where is it?
Behind a gate in the wall as you enter the Dunham Massey National Trust property Rob. We had not seen the gate open on previous visits so it was a welcome surprise :)
That's fun! It would be a great way to make an otherwise awkward tree stump a much-loved feature. Sadly all my stumps are of a size that you would need a magnifying glass to see any carving, and anyway I lack the talent.
Hi Anna, I'm glad you enjoyed your walk at Dunham Massey and I hope your mum is feeling better now. I've not had much chance to read (or write for that matter) recently and was sad to just read now that she's been poorly. Best wishes x
Oh, I think this is beautiful! I love the idea that someone has taken the time to carve this with lots of little creatures, absolutely wonderful! Children must love this!
