A Wee Beaver & A Wee Ladder

Tuesday after work hubby and I were in the living room and he was looking out the window at the River and suddenly said “hey, what’s that?  There’s something small swimming – I think it’s a beaver, but a really small one!” so we both went outside on the fish …

6 Panel Art Project – Part 7

I tried to repair the damage, but ended up doing a complete redo of the 3 light/daytime panels.

Today I ended up trashing one of the 6 panels of my latest art project. *Scream*!!! And breaking the garbage disposal.

I’ve always wanted the tree on my daytime panels to be bright shiny silver. After trying to cut sheet metal tin, then contemplating tin foil, then contemplating silver leaf, I discovered silver “liquid leaf” and my decision was made. I completed the silver on 2 of the 3 light/daytime panels.

OMG Water Snake!

I have spotted the water snake sunning herself, but I have never seen her actually swimming until today! She’s about 4 feet long and quite fat – she’s obviously cleaning up with all the fish trapped in the shallow water due to the drought.

The Keeper of the Hole

Lately I feel like the Keeper of the Hole. Last week I wrote about the drought and how the fish ladder has dried up, and also how I removed some rocks from the entrance to the storm drain below our house. Well, today it was even worse!
