are prone to trouble so when we had to patch a large area of mud I was understandably nervous. After the rain that was last summer Kona had started excavation on a pool for her and Drummer. After it rained they would race through the house mud flying all the way to the ceiling........
Marcy and I got finally got the new rolls of grass planted and here are our barricades
so far they haven't figured it out my fingers are crossed.
I would have said winter but I'm resisting that phrase for now. Just because we had snow the other day and it was the second earliest snowfall....ever, here. Just say'n. I was sealing a painting the other day and left it on the patio to dry and when I came out this was on it
one of my Newfies
had strolled across, yes Drummer, of course. Later that day I was headed down to Denver and this big boy crossed in front of my car
he looks little and far away here but actually he was about 10 feet from my car. Elk are pretty self assured and little ruffles their feathers, unless it's rutting season, which it is, you can run across them in small skirmishes this time of year. Just make sure you don't get in the middle.
Sculpture in the park show, up in Loveland and my first year. So far it's been pretty nice! If you are looking for something fun to do this week end give this event some consideration. Here's a shot of tent A by my spot.
We get these totally cool double rainbows up here pretty frequently sometimes even a triple. How those people got one going right into their house, I don't know, I just hope they got the pot of gold too.
Working on a new wall sculpture just trying some ideas out. This one had me fiddling around with it all afternoon and into the evening.....I hate that cause I get obsessive and can't quit, anyway I did figure out what I wanted to do but have to run to the hardware store for some supplies.
Making a critter for the creature show in September at Zip 37 gallery. He's coming along nicely, a interesting combo of doll, vacuum tube, duck head, and gears. He's about 12 inches tall so far, there is probably a hat coming.
We use to have a lot of song birds, swallows and other birds nesting around our house. Over the last few years the magpies have become so prevalent that they have destroyed the bird population. They eat the baby birds and eggs to the point that the birds stay away from our house. This year though their population was way down my neighbor told me they had had a big battle with the crows late last year and it had nicely culled their ranks.
A friend gave me this little rustic birdhouse, which is decorative it has glitter and pine cones decorating it. I'm pretty big on hanging things from my aspen trees so this has been in my garden for a year. The other day I was headed down stairs when I heard little cheeping I could not figure out where it was coming from. A little teeny bird had decided this was home. How awesome is that?
