I enjoy being outdoors, just about any time of year. Rain (we get plenty here in the Northwest(Edmonds Washington), wind I love a breeze and am surprised that only a few leaves in my lifetime have ever fallen on me while out in the wind. I love the sun, beach and lots of rock.
I dabble in concrete sculpture, hypertufa, bending rebar, and recycled glass things, and last spring doing some bent willow and alder chairs. I have taught a few workshops in a variety of concrete notions, and I like to find a way to "do it my self".
I ask for quirky gifts that include a cement mixer, shovel, extra garden gloves (ATLAS are the best).My daughter had a stepping stone party for her friends, we will have a tea cup bird feeder party just before mothers day.
My kids and husband know that bringing me a "rock" from their hike or river trip or even a Europe trip will make me happiest. If I am along they know their packs will be heavier after lunch than before.
Our yard is small, I have collected and rescued a variety of plants from demolition sites. My mom and dad think I am nuts, but have gone along with me to "save" a plant, tree. trellis, and old bricks. I have gained many a gardening friend from sharing the plants in my yard.
I love seeing the ideas that others have in the accoutrements forum and the junk forum. Dena
