yesterday while i was making dinner my husband and daughter were outside doing yard work. we have lots of trees that have dropped limbs over the winter and they were gathering them all from around our yard, i figured they were just putting them in a pile as usual.
this morning as i returned from my daily walk, i walked up through our back yard and found this lovely earthworks sculpture that they had made. clearly inspired by one of my favorite artists- andy goldsworthy- they made this sweet sea of sticks intentionally placed around a tree. you can imagine what joy this brought me!
