    Yours is better than mine, a mulberry with roots above ground all over :-(
    You can build a fire pit around it, just be sure to cement or brick it good so the stump can't catch fire. Id have to see a pic if your whole area around it to get a better idea. I'm a cheapskate I know how to fix stuff in my backyard with refurbished materials. Good luck and have fun. Being creative makes me happy

    Drill holes in the CENTER of the stump, take a hammer and a sharp wedge, force the wood particles (that the drill has weakened) out , keep doing this until you have depth that you want. Put your potting soil in the hole, add your flowers and you have a nice , natural planter !

    place a bird bath saucer on top and/or create a fairy garden around it. You can even decorate the stump with little doors and windows

    I also have a large stump from a tree removal on my front yard. I found a really cute turtle statue and put in on the stump and now it looks like the stump was an intended base for it. Very cute!

    or for one day---rent a stump grinder.....basically a machine with a lot of hammers....pushes like lawn mower...stump is gone in a couple hours...usually can be rented for under $100....give hubby a new tool to play with for a day/ you know men can't resist playing with tools....watch videos on youtube.com=stumpgrinder...make sure to wear safety glasses

    Add a top to it and use it as a table and put some chairs next to it if it is the right height. you can also drill or cut the middle out and fill it with bird seeds or peanuts for squirrels.

    How about making it into a fire pit area? Surroubd it with stone or that metal type circle, add logs and maybe it will burn it up! I am kidding however, who knows?, maybe that would work. If not, I like the tabletop idea...
