If you've visited Sculpturedale in the
summertime, you have undoubtedly spent some time around the water
features (a series of "bodies of water" somewhere between puddles and
ponds) seeing and hearing the frogs that thickly inhabit them.
Photographers have snapped uncounted shots of huge frogs lounging on
lilypads, with sculpture dancing in the distance. Children are drawn to
the frogs like magnets, as are visiting Labs and Newfies! So of course
I had to start adding sculptured frogs. Then came the march of
tortoises. And a hare soon joined them. Then another. All larger than
life, naturally, so they make a statement even from across the lawn.
More will inevitably follow...jumping, trudging, leaping, posing. But
where to put them on my website? Their variety of size and natural
habitat didn't fit in any existing category, so I will simply call the
"critters" for now. Some want to enhance an area with water, others
would be just as happy perched on a stone ledge. None need to hibernate
for the winter!
