Wishing everybody a beary happy Easter. 🐻

I just wanted to wish you all a very happy Easter, lots of fun, lots of chocolate and lots of love.

I also wanted to share with you this chainsaw sculpture hubby did. It is his first project and it has taken him 6 years off and on since felling the tree to reaching this point because it was abandoned for over a year due to his damaged mitral valve and then open-heart surgery. Consequently the back of the sculpture where it was lying on the ground for so long is rotten and has provided great interest and treats for the woodpeckers. πŸ˜‚ Anyway, it is now finished and getting it into position was stressful to watch as I worried he’d damage himself again. But thankfully all safe and sound.πŸ‘πŸ»

Happy Easter everybody! πŸ₯šπŸ£πŸ₯πŸ‡πŸ‘πŸ»xx

It’s wonderful! A real feature for your garden. We saw a chain saw competition once when visiting my sister in Nebraska and it is amazing to watch. Well done to your husband. πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ™Œ

Thanks Barbara. That must have been amazing watching a competition. 🀩The chips were flying I bet! πŸ˜† Hubby has now treated himself to a chainsaw with a carving blade to make things easier so I’m hoping for more to come.🀞 Have a wonderful Easter Barbara. πŸ€—πŸ˜˜x

It's amazing! Well done hubby.

Hope you both have a chocolatey Easter.

Aww, thank you Daisy. 😘 I will show hubby your comments, and everybody else’s, as it will encourage him to try sculpturing more things. πŸ™πŸ» Are your woodpeckers greater spotted? Ours are and they are beautiful birds aren’t they? Harey Easter to you and Horace! 🐰 πŸ˜† Hugs πŸ€—πŸ˜˜x

Yes Spotty the beautiful greater spotted woodpecker 😘 & we do occasionally get the larger green woodpecker on our grass... he's more nervous, but both are a delight to seeπŸ’› Have collected a few of their discarded spotty feathers πŸ™‚

Hope your hubby continues his sculpting..he's very talented.

Hugs back X

Haha, I’ve collected some of the greater spotted woody’s feathers too. πŸ‘πŸ» We don’t get the green woodpeckers in our area, so you are blessed to have both. Thanks for posting a picture of the feathers - they are lovely. Yes, hubby’s planning a squirrel next out of the stump of a beech tree he felled 2 years ago. It is still in the ground so should be interesting how he avoids tramping on the flowers I planted around it. πŸ˜† Take care Daisy πŸ€—πŸ˜˜x

looks good, what is he making next?

He’s planning a squirrel next, but has a few other projects he wants to do first. Happy Easter Suzannah. πŸ€—x

will be waiting for a picture :)


Spotty-ewe, Awesome sculpture! I am so glad your hubby is all right after heart surgery and was able to complete this. He surely needs to do more sculpting. Creative talent should never be wasted. hope you both have a very special Easter. Looking foward to his next endeavor.

Healing hugs.

Thanks so much for your kind words Pumpkin. πŸ‘πŸ» Hubby had his open heart surgery almost 3 years ago and is not bad at present thank you. He’s just waiting to find out what can be done for his very fast heartbeat which he’s had since an ablation for AF last October. You are right about not wasting creative talent and I encourage him to do more as long as he’s not lifting very heavy weights and over-doing it. He is 69 in May so needs to remember that too. πŸ˜‚. He is outside casting concrete steps down to the wee burn at the back of our property today. πŸ™„ You can’t keep a good man down! 🀣 Enjoy the rest of your Easter weekend Pumpkin. πŸ€—x

Fabulous sculpting by your talented hubby Spotty! What a lovely garden feature - is it near the front of your house for passers by to see? How unique! I hope hubby can create some more with his special blade and that his health remains good. I’d love to see more of his creations - do say well done to him from me. 🐻πŸͺšβ€οΈπŸ‘πŸ˜˜πŸ€—πŸ˜˜

Hubby says to thank you for your kind words HW. Yes, the sculpture is at the front of the house right beside the lane but as there are only 2 houses beyond us it is only the neighbours who see it. But they have told him they love it, so he’s chuffed. He will hopefully start his next project soon, but he has a lot of garden projects he’s working on because our narrow but long garden is slowly slumping into the burn. So he’s put in several gabion baskets which he started on last spring while I was taking the ivy off the hawthorn hedge (when I came across the dunnocks nest) and he’s begged stone, old bricks and rubble from neighbours and used it to fill them. Luckily a cottage nearby is being totally refurbished so a lot of stone etc has come from there. BUT that means lifting it all into our trailer and then lifting it out again here and barrowing it down to the gabions. Heavy work. But he’s taking it slowly and assures me he’s fine! πŸ™„ Have you been up to any creations in the kitchen or with your paint pens lately? Enjoy the rest of your Easter HW. Love and hugs. πŸ€—πŸ˜˜x

Love it to bitsπŸ€—. Happy a wonderful Easter.

Love the bears. So cute. A video for the bear lover in you....


Hi JM, that is so funny and so typical of week ones isn’t it! πŸ˜‚ I do love bears (not that I’d ever want to meet one face to face!) so it was lovely to see. Hubby was stationed on Vancouver Island for a couple of years in the 1990s and I used to go out to see him and we came across a black bear scratching itself in the middle of a road into Port Hardy. It was so funny. Lovely creatures. Thanks so much for sharing. I hope you are keeping okay πŸ™πŸ» and that you enjoy the rest of the Easter weekend. Have fun! πŸ₯šπŸ°πŸ»πŸ€—x

Happy Easter to everyone. Love the sculpture. Best wishes Kevin

Thank you spotty for your lovely message. I will reply after Easter, involved with op prep. I do agree your right to want to know blood results so πŸ‘ŒπŸ» for mon and neuro referral!. A normal blood pressure reading is between 100-150/ and 60-90. I've written it down as useful info!.

I wish you both a Beary Happy Easter too. That sculpture is amazing. Your hubby is so clever. Will pop up again. Keep safe. Xx

Thank you so much Stormy. Hubby bought me a plaque for inside the house that says β€œA grizzly bear and his honey live here”. πŸ˜‚ I love it. I hope you, hubby and the newly groomed and very smart looking Storm, enjoy the rest of your Easter holiday. Love, hugs and blessings to all 3 of you. πŸ’•πŸ€—πŸ™πŸ»πŸ₯šπŸ°πŸ‘πŸ«πŸ’xx

Fabulous carving Spotty πŸ€—yay finished at last!! Well done Mr Spotty!! πŸ™ŒπŸ»Getting a carving bar will help immensely so a good investment..n I'm sure u will have lots more carvings in your garden!! πŸ˜ΉπŸ‘

Happy Easter to u both ❀️🌈😽😽xx

Thank you Kat. Kind and encouraging words from one who knows.πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ» He’s only ever dabbled before now and this was his first large project, so he’s chuffed it is finished at last. How long it will last with a rotten back to it we don’t know, but we and the woodpeckers will enjoy it for however long it lasts. πŸ˜‚ He’s busy reinforcing the banks of the wee burn that flows down the side of our garden at present, but I’m hoping he’ll start a new chainsaw project for enjoyment soon. He finds it very satisfying and therapeutic. I bet you must miss your chainsaw carvings Kat, but if you still have any of your sculptures you should post them as I’m sure we’d all love to see them, my hubby included. 🀩Wishing you, hubby and your wee dug a very Happy Easter. Love and hugs, πŸ’•πŸ€—πŸ˜˜πŸ₯šπŸ£πŸ‡πŸ‘πŸ°πŸ’πŸ«xx

Same to my friend Enjoy .

I absolutely love this tree carving - your hubby should be so proud ❀️
