I was off work last week, using up some holiday, but since Jan didn’t have any holiday left and had to work, I didn’t actually go anywhere. Instead I read, did some cleaning and explored the local area a bit. On one of the days, I went for a two hour walk and ended up in the woods near Allschwil. At first it was all trees and birdsong, but then I turned a corner and saw these guys:
“Hear no evil” seems to have had a bit of an accident… and I’m not sure who their weird looking friend is!
I thought that was everything, but then further down the path I found a whole collection of wooden carvings, watching me from among the trees…
Later, I spotted this friendly looking fellow in an entirely different part of the woods:
A nice little local find that I really wasn’t expecting 🙂
What do you think of these wood carvings? Any favourites?

Very cute.Always nice to find unexpected treasures.:)x
what an unexpected surprise to find on your walk!
The last one is impressive. I also love the owls 🙂
What a great little find! My favourite is the last one, with the long beard – very clever. I think the weird little friend of See, Hear and Speak No Evil is a replacement for Hear. 🙂
I find them a bit sinister except the Squirrel! Squirrels are never sinister!x
The ones in the trees are a bit sinister… watching, waiting. Surely you don’t find the owls sinister though? And the spoon is just a bit bizarre!
So random to find them! I love the watchers – there is something so mysterious about them! An invitation for conversation, I love that.
Yes, great conversation starter! I wish I was that artistic 🙂
Such an interesting little treasure trove you stumbled upon! Very cool!
Definitely – I was not expecting it at all!
What a wonderful discovery! I love the last one, how it is still apart of the tree roots.
Yes, I thought that was very cool. Nice way to deal with a dead tree 🙂
They look to be equal parts creepy and fun! I do love the little squirrel guy up there!
I love the owl! It’s always fun to discover random things like this during a staycation. It makes me want to explore my area more!
