If you look carefully, you'll see that this bird is made from old tools: shovel head, rake head, hand cultivator, iron rake, etc. (It lives in the flower garden at Dimond Hill Farm.)
Tomorrow we're going to the Windsor Fair and I can't wait! When we were there last year we saw a bunch of cool sculptures like this one. If I see one this year that I REALLY (really, really) like (and I can afford it), I'm getting one.
There were also blacksmiths, tool makers and guys napping flint blade knives. Michael and I tried our axe throwing skills and we'll DEFINITELY be purchasing a set of those. Fun, fun, fun and I'm really good at it -- and I don't mind saying so!
Also, we were surprised and delighted to find a Filipino Food vendor in among the usual fair fare -- and this year we'll visit that booth FIRST. Last time we had sampled a bunch of different tasties before stumbling on the FilipinoMobile and were too full to try everything. This year we've got a better game plan, heh, heh, heh...
