Inspired by spring

Mark Twain said, “In the Spring, I have counted 136 different kinds of weather inside of 24 hours.”  He must have spent some time in Portland, since that’s our daily weather  roller coaster of clouds, sun and temperature shifts!  I’ve been inspired by, or maybe yearning for, spring colors!  This is a heart shaped cane that shifts from butter yellow to sunset orange with center dots from red to pink.

Polymer on last year’s buck.   Winter in the woods is eerie and magical.

Friend Robin Madgwick left us great mobiles, so I hung a few polymer ornaments on one.
