Rounds on the Ground

After "planting".

Thanks to Mark, the owner of Artful Gardens in Buckingham, for cutting and donating these pine pavers. Judging by the rings, these came from a 40 year old tree.

Like any pavers, you don’t just drop them on the ground. I raked the mulch away, then dug down about an inch in the sand for a solid, level base, and nestled each log slice into place. If this were my garden I would spray them with preservative. But I am sure the students at San Carlos Park Elementary would rather paint them. Pardon the fuzzy photos: it was 95 degrees and the lens steamed up. (
