A big thank you to Simon who creosoted our Compost Guardian last week! He's not easy to reach and I love the way he's highlighted his eyes! He was made by Chris Pugh in 2017 and is carved from a fallen 20 foot English oak tree very much along the lines of a traditional Canadian totem pole. These traditional poles are carved from a much softer native pine. This was immensely time consuming and much harder work! Sadly having finished his totem pole, a huge beech tree fell on it breaking it in two. This is the reason that the two remaining unbroken sections came to live in Pear Tree Cottage Garden with the winged section standing over the compost bays!! Nice to think he'll be preserved for a little longer!!
