Saturday with Stags and Slabs

Last Saturday, I noticed the stags are growing. They needed wider slabs to give them more room to grow. I decided to remount them to bigger slabs.
Tree fern slabs

I opted to use copper wire than iron wire. These are easier to bend and color blends well with the slabs.
...then I put 2 pieces of slabs together ...
and secured the stags to the wider slabs.

I know it's kind of late to greet but to all the mothers out there, HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!!

You made it seem so easy. And what a lovely result!

Thank you, Sage Butterfly. I had to be careful not to hurt the fronds, other than that, it was fun and easy...

Wonderful way to keep adding on slabs as the plants grow.

Yes, I'm glad there were available slabs in the garden store, cost less than wood and I think better, too! :)

I like your arrangement. Using copper wire is a good idea.

Thanks, I believe they are good wood preservatives, too so they are harmless to plants...
