    Just found this, thank you for posting the link from Garden Visits thread. But, yet again I can't see the Photobucket Photos. Full of ads, some time ago I tried the ad block, but it didn't work. But then Photobucket said I had to sign in, but I no longer have an account with them as they wanted to be paid and I declined. It took ages to get that far as Internet here is very poor.

    I can see photos on this site, even if I have to wait a bit.

    Ah!  It's an insect hotel, not a log store or a sculpture...  image

    Maybe 2 out of the three Liri.   Their log pile is much more functional and hidden near the house.
