Another Creative Endeavor – Interpreting the Natural World

Most posts on this blog focus on the world as I see it through the lens of a camera.

Yesterday I blogged how another blogger interpreted those photos.

Today I add yet another post on interpretation.

I love sculpture in the garden.  Unfortunately I, as many people, do not have the disposable income which allows one to purchase said sculptures.  So as many gardeners do, I scrap, salvage and create.

With this is mind I have learned how to turn sand, cement and peat moss into leaves that adorn the garden year round.

  1. I love personally created little treasures for out in the garden. They have a special appeal and, sweat equity always adds value! Your leaves are lovely.and will grow even more beautiful as time adds subtle coloration from little touches of moss and algae.
