What's a forest slab, Clarence? Sounds interesting.

No snow here yet. In fact, it was pretty nice today - just a little chilly.

Forest slab for putting bonsai trees on.here a picture of the slab itself. I will follow up with planted pear tree seedlings on in by tomorrow.Some people use cement to build a slab out of that weight a ton. Smiling mine will weight less than a pound.
