I'm melting!!


It would seem that it has been raining in my area for the proverbial 40 days and 40 nights...we broke all sorts of rainfall records in April and the first couple days of May have also been wet!!!  

During a moment last week when the rains had stopped for a time, I went out to see how soggy everything was...needless-to-say...soggy was an understatement. I also stopped by my daughter's sculptures to see how they were doing. (If you remember, I've written in the past how she put these out in our garden to watch them "decompose".) And...they are doing quite nicely...melting away and taking on new dimensions and personalities! Nothing dramatic has fallen off since my last posting on these...but some nice "dissolving" is going on at the surface. It is really cool what is happening! 


If this month proves to be as wet as April, I'm sure I will have some new images to share as these sculptures slowly....melt....away....

@ jen ~ aren't they! It's been fun watching them "melt" since my daughter put them out there...can't wait to see what happens next!

Ah - the rain must be nice! And what beautiful sculptures - I love the idea of them being tucked away in a garden, decomposing slowly...very artistic.

@ Bill ~ It is cool watching these "melt"...and change as they do so. They are most definitely different personalities now than before!

@ BB ~ after the dry summer and fall we had last year, the rain is good...but not so much of it at once! Watching them change, reflecting what's going on around them, changing their personalities has been fun...you're right...very artistic!
