Logs and sticks, Malvern

Log arch at 2010 Malvern Show.  Photo by The Enduring Gardener.

I saw this photo on the blog The Enduring Gardener and thought of my parents, who had their forest thinned last fall, which left a lot of woody debris.  A simple metal frame holds the logs and sticks in place.

Are you currently cleaning up from a lot of winter tree damage?

This log arch was a display at the 2010 Malvern Spring Gardening Show in the U.K. The photo is © The Enduring Gardener, which is written by Stephanie Donaldson, Contributing Garden Editor of Country Living (U.K.) magazine. She also co-authored The Elements of Organic Gardening with the Prince of Wales.

Her blog’s “Inspiration” page has a lot of great photos of the Chelsea and Hampton Court garden shows.
