    I've been poking away at a little family of quail. The birds are carved, but now the work on the habitat begins. I needed to carve the birds first. Then I needed to get a foot for Papa quail. Then I needed to begin the primary mounting branch. This branch is based on a piece of dead sagebrush plant that I picked up on a hike 2 years ago in our neighborhood. I've already added another branchlet or two and have at least a couple more. I will have quite a bit to do beyond the branch. Then there will be rocks and flowers and gravels, etc.

    His left tarsus and toes.  This is the primary support for papa quail. A general view of the composition as it stands currently.

    Art found is a special thing...sometimes found in the strangest places, yet still intact, and obviously cared for... a testament to connections made.

    Went on a short river cruise on the Columbia/Snake yesterday with Mrs. Picture Fairy. Mostly took tourist photos because, well, we were being tourists.

    But I think this one of an old rail bridge across the Columbia with the wind turbines in the background, may just end up on my wall....

    Very cool! I wish I were handier with that sort of thing -- we live on a busy residential street, close to churches, a middle school, and a high school. We get tons of foot traffic past the place and it would be fun to have a little library on the lot (even though, we are also 2 blocks from the City Library).

    With a little free time on my hands late winter, I built a couple of little librarys . One for our street and the other (a little off center) is off to Ashland.
    By the way I always read this thread to check out all the talented and artistic fisher people.

    I feel compelled to share this photo from Sparky's, an ice cream shop in Columbia, Missouri. The point is not Mrs. Fuzzy and Gandchild Fuzzy enjoying their ice cream. The point is the wall behind them. It's one of three walls covered with amateur art gleaned from attics and garage sales across Missouri. Kind of takes your breath away.

    none in my yard, but I've photographed it I think. I did a extensive project for the local conservation district last year and photographed a whole ton of native and/or low-water plants.
