A Sculptural Assist

Once it got growing the Lush took it away faster than I was able to roll it into place. We have had three mild freezes and the first snow now. The Lush was fading away. I didn't want to wait through several heavy snows and a couple of gale force blizzards for the Lush to be laid low and I was able to see it again.

Today I chopped down the Lush to reveal the Creation once again. It will take a little settling of contents and some decomposition for a full reveal, but the wait will be much shorter now. I will have something strong to look at during the barren months of winter.

The Creation is a bit different now than the pictures from the link above. More stones were added and others rearranged. A faint outline is discernible in the stubble.

Over the winter I can contemplate how best to plant or not around it so it is not completely obliterated during the season of vegetation.

Added: I knew there was a more recent finished picture of the Creation some where.

Why don't you try some of those gorgeous sunflowers down there?

That's not a bad idea. It could happen.

It will be more visible during the cold months. Love those rocks. I agree Sunflowers would be nice. Maybe something low so as to see your sculpture.

Lola I am thinking a mix of low and gravel.

That sounds nice. I can pic it in my mind.
