Black Bamboo and Other Finds

This morning I went to visit a friend who offered to let me take some cuttings of his black bamboo.

The cuttings are nearly 9′ long.

I found loads of cypress pods.

I found a piece of mesh that has pant parts growing through it.


And a piece of twisted wood.

I also found some cuttings from a cypress that sustained storm damage. I am thinking that it would be fun to shred the wood and bind it to the exterior of a box.

Then I noticed a cypress was weeping. It was sad, but lovely. And a bit sticky…

On the way home, stopped by to see the goats. They are working goats. They have been tasked with clearing a field near the airport. Apparently it was break time.


One of the goats wears a bell.

Today there was even a watch dog. He gave a long deep howl.

Now it is studio time.
