This newest addition to our Woodspirit Garden is Ben. You’ll notice he had to be fitted with an eye patch. We have an ongoing woodspirit discussion group in our workshop at the end of each day to help them deal with the reality that they can now be seen by everyone. Before “coming out” they were viewed by most people as a tree trunk, limb, discarded tree root, etc., as only woodspirit carvers can see them hiding within the tree.

Trying to be a good host for the discussion group, and considering it’s a mixed group, maple, oak, and poplar, I thought I would break out the Guinness to break the ice. Well, after a few pints, one thing lead to another and Ben said something to Hiram about him not looking like poplar. Hiram thought Ben said he wasn’t popular, and next thing you know he hit Ben with a tomato stake. The saga continues.

Some times the Guinness can do that to your hearing. Nicely done.

I wasn’t so worried about the patch, but it looked like Hiram might of shot Ben above the eye! lol

Thank God he didn’t Huff. I can do patch work, but I’m not a tree surgeon. Thanks for the comment.
