Let's continue chatting about the driftwood pieces we've found, seen or own.

Trees, stumps, bark and such are all welcome.

On Cape Cod we often passed a shop named Yak Arts. What a treasure it is. Most of the wood items come from Indonesia.

These faces are made from the very fast growing trees in Indonesia, which are planted in sand. The top of the tree is cut off and used for other purposes but it leaves the roots that are very easily lifted from the sand and local artisans create these wonderful faces.

The pieces are very large and very beautiful.

Pirl, thank you so much for starting part 2. I'm one of those dial-ups and this will be much easier. I love the benches and the root face is stunning. It makes me want to get a whittling set and start carving, but I'm afraid my thumbs would be the first things to come off! :( As a camp nurse I became quite skillfull with steri-strips due to whittling classes. You started such a fun thread so I'm glad we can carry it on.

Pirl, I've seen some of those beautiful benches from Indonesia. I've often thought of getting one, but wouldn't want to use it outside. Don't have the right place for one inside. There are also beautifully carved pieces of Mahogany from Indonesia.

There is such extreme joy in wandering around Yak Arts and it's a place many people seem to just drive by and pay no attention to it seems. It is never crowded.

When people ask how we can go to Cape Cod each and every June I feel they must not absorb what's to be seen and enjoyed. Even at a Rhododendron Park there was no one but us on a gorgeous sunny afternoon where I spotted this peeling bark.

Pirl, Is that a Birch? I keep seeing those exfoliating bark birches everywhere and keep thinking how handsome they are. But I have a large River Birch and nowhere to put another. I like them because their leaf cover is not overwhelming.

I believe it is. Only the Rhododendrons had name plates.

We had two white birches but they aren't meant for this area and it's the most common tree to see arborists removing, sadly. They just rot out.

Crape Myrtles and our Andromeda have lovely bark as well but not as nice as that birch.

Mine loses one of the mid to large size trunks about every 3 years. Each year I let 2 or 3 of the starts grow and there are always replacement trunks going. It's the same all over the Mid Atlantic region too. I don't know if this is not the case anywhere in the US. But they are pretty.

Here is my favorite Crepe Myrtle, Red Rocket. It also get wonderful bronze berries and foliage in the fall.. I'll have to pay closer attention to the bark.

Beautiful birches Pirl. Birches grow well here but are subject to borers. I don't have one here but did in western Kansas. It the was the closest thing to satisfy my love (and missing) of aspen, and yet handle our growing conditions here. I didn't realize crape myrtles peeled either, I'll have to go look at mine now. Stormy, I love that Red Rocket...what a beautiful color.

Here's a couple of interesting pieces I hauled back from my tree hunt. The first one is an old knot-like area or maybe root part. I thought I could plant some sedums or hen and chicks in the bowl it's created.

What a wonderful idea! I have some tiny-leaved sedum that has a blue-green color...always reminds me of little blue spruce trees. Maybe I could pack the split with some potting mix and add that. Or if I wanted to go for color I could seed some portulaca in there. thank you so much.

Willowind, I think Portulaca would look great in there.

That Red Rocket grew to that size from an 18" twig planted 4 years ago. I have 2 of them on that white wall, one at either corner along the side of the house.

Pirl, I worked a lot of hours today and couldn't get into the garden at all. Will try to check it tomorrow.

Stormy, Hi! We have a clump white birch out front Jamie and I brought back from coal country 15-20 years ago. A couple of the trunks will have to be removed before winter (egad, more craft material LOL). We also have vigorous new growth (much to Holly's disappointment) coming in. I love this thing in any season: the white bark is such a contrast to the juniper background, the early spring catkins are a harbinger of things to come, and the summer foliage seems to shimmer in the slightest breeze ( I can understand why willowwind finds it reminiscent of aspen). It also makes me think of the sensitive little guy tagging along on Dad's heels through the north woods to find one suitable to dig up and drag home. Ric
P.S. Holly thinks she could put the space to better use and I will admit that we are at the southern most range for these to grow well without northern exposure or elevation.

sk, I have wire vine in several places and have liked it. The biggest problem I've had is having grass or weeds seed through it. It is really quite tough and comes back just when I'm sure it hasn't made it. Mine hasn't developed into anything very sizeable, but my daughter has one that has really taken off. Hers is about 4-5 years old now.

Ric, your white birch is so pretty...it makes me miss mine. Sounds like it has special memories too.

Willow, bending with the wind, looking very pretty, warm as the sun...

Just seemed like the thing to say. My wire vine lives year round. I have it in planters, hanging baskets and pots. In the ground, I do sometimes get wild grass coming through but I just lift it up and weed under it. I have not seen it attach to the ground. I wonder if I covered some long strands if they would root. I think i will try that because I have about 10 cutting going and it looks like only 2 or 3 are going to make it. Have you seen the seed?

Beautiful Birch. Love the multiple trunks.

We are going to freeze tomorrow night.

We are OK as long as you are in hr sun. In the shade it is cold. Problem in Las Vegas is we do not have a lot of winter clothes. My DGG Hannah, left her for her freshman year in Provo, Utah. Her roommate is from Boston. Her roommate kept telling her to layer her clothing. She had no idea what she was talking about and finally told her. Her roommate was on the floor laughing in disbelief. The roommate said that is something you learn in Boston when you are very young. I think I am going to write a letter to BYU and state they might include a website to go to for instructions for layering of clothing for us Southwest desert rats going to cold areas for college. LOL.

I had a great day. Did a lot inside and I may get caught up on the house and start on the photo albums. Those are my winter projects. Photo albums and cuttings. Hope you all had a great day. But I think my DH has watched at least 9 football games in two different rooms. Maybe that is why I got some work done. LOL..

Here are a few more driftwood pics. I keep a piece in my birdbath for the birds to perch on. Here is a pic of the whole birdbath. For those that may not have seen it before it is a fountain with a 3ft deep pond at the bottom. The water bubbles out the top and drips back into the pond base. There is a Robin sitting on the driftwood.

Willow, We were helping friends move and they were going to leave it. Not really sure where they got it from might have been in the yard when they bought it. It's cement and very old. There was a pedestal and the top, it may have been originally used as a fountain as there is a hole in the top that runs all the way thought the pedestal. I knew what I wanted but was having trouble finding something for the pond bottom. One of my sons was working for a company that makes cement products, basement stairs, pipe, septic tanks culverts. He custom made the pond bottom just to fit the pedestal. They make this 6ft wide 3ft deep well and he poured a center core the same size as the pedestal with a hole running thru it also. We put a circulating pump in the bottom and a flexible tube runs all the way from the bottom of the well up thru the core and pedestal then out the top. I didn't want it to spray up high just enough to bubble over and drip back into the pond bottom. I have fish and frogs as well as pond plants in the bottom.
The driftwood just sits in the top I have never had to secure it in any fashion.
Here is a summer pic pretty overgrown by this time.

Goodness, those plants look happy as clams! That is really something, and to come by it the way you did is so lucky. It's a good thing your son is so capable in finishing off the project. We have an old stone BBQ/outdoor fireplace that was built here in the 40's and is now falling apart on the sides. I had wanted to put it back together to use, but DH said he just didn't think it would be structurally sound at this point, so...now I want to try to make it into a fountain. We have an old sink thing that was used for flushing large amounts of mop water and old meds at the nursing home where I worked and it will fit perfectly into the cooking area. I figure, if I cover it over with the rock thats come off the sides, and some extra as well, I can run tubing up the chimney and allow the water to spill (just bubbling too) over the top and back into the bowl under the rocks. it should allow for drinking and bathing, but not be exposed where it will need cleaning all the time. We'll see if it works.

Oh Stormy, when I first looked at that picture I couldn't figure out how the water could have frozen so quickly to be caught in mid-air. Then I read your post and saw the word sculpture. How silly I feel! That really is beautiful...where is it?

Holly really is very lucky. I really love my husband, but I think his structural integrity arguement may have been more of an "I really don't want to do it." fuss. I don't know though, because he was amazingly enthusiastic about making it into a fountain. Maybe he just doesn't realize how well I want to cover it with rock! :) At any rate, it will be interesting, and I have a bed winding around it anyway so the heat from cooking might play havoc with the plants, but water certainly won't.

You guys are right I do have some very wonderful and talented men. Dear hubby Ric and both my sons Josh and Jamie are really handy. They all have an artistic eye as well and quite often add ideas and details to my projects. I can get them to fix or make almost anything if I'm willing to wait. We have a lot of unfinished projects though and Boy are they hoarders. LOL
Willow that does sound like a great idea. You might want to try finding something flat to run the water thru at the top to get a sheet of water comming down over the rocks. Or maybe several copper tubes or a tube that lays along the top with several holes so you have water comming down at different points along the rock. Depending on how much work you want to put into it you could add a small pond at the base and make another tier of water flowing from the sink into a lower level. Add some potted plants and it will be lovely.
Stormy, Love that statue. I must go visit Burpee's Fordhook Farm this summer. You have such great pics from there.

I wish my son lived closer because he is truly a gardener at heart too, and loves projects. Unfortunately he's going back to school, and will probably have several more years if he gets into the program he wants, so he won't even have time for much for a good while. Actually, that's not unfortunate...just for me! I do have a very gifted son-in-law though, so may have to get him involved in some of these things.

Holly thanks for the ideas. I might use the tube with several holes at the top as I want just a gentle flow, but wider than what a single dripping tube would give. There is a good spot at the base of the structure where a small pool could be, and that might be pretty with the sheet effect a flat surface would provide. H-m-m-m...great ideas to fall asleep contemplating.

One of the things that I really like about that sculpture, is it's placement. It appears that it and the tree are being swept along the same windy course and they seem to mirror each other's motion.

LOL Stormy, You should see the Live Oak Trees on that island, too.
Ric and I had the nicest day just sitting on that beach. It's on the inlet and as you walk farther down the beach and around the curve you see fewer and fewer pieces of driftwood and finally you come to this empty beach. There is a salt marsh behind the beach and the water rushes out of the salt marsh across the beach to the ocean. I've never seen anything like it. We stayed out on the beach till the tide came in so high that there wasn't hardly any beach. Then we went back to the camp ground and put up the tent and then went out and had dinner. On the way back to the camp ground we went back to the beach to see how high the water had gotten. It was pretty neat the ocean was all the way back into the salt marsh. There was this bridge that we walked across earlier in the day when the salt marsh was emptying back into the ocean and then at night the water was flowing the opposite direction back into the marsh.

Talking about Shrimp there were two men with a long net catching shrimp while we were there. One man would walk out in to the water and stand in shoulder deep water with one end of the net. He would be out there at least a 1/2 hr or more then they would walk the net in and pull the shrimp and fish out of the net then the other man would go out and stand in the water and they would repeat the process. The day we were there that water was cold really cold I wouldn't get in it and no one else was in the water either. There was a pretty strong current going thru there too. They did that over and over all day until it was too dark to see. What a way to make a living.

Oh, Holly! What gorgeous pictures and great pieces of driftwood. I love them, as you'd expect.

We haven't been going to the beach too often this winter since it's been colder than normal - so much for global warming!

Holly, I've read a lot about those shrimpers, but never really stayed around to watch them work. A lot of those guys are 10th generation shrimpers and they still do it the old way. I don't think there are any that still use the nets by hand in the gulf, just in the low country.

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
