One of the treats of renovating is finding stuff buried in neglected beds that you forgot you even had. I found Pan abandoned near the wood's edge where a bed never quite rose to his magnificence. Now he's waiting for permanent installation while keeping the dragonfly entertained.
I've been doing a fair amount of work on my gardens this year -- installing several tons of gravel, harvesting rocks and building low rock walls, and generally sprucing up the landscape. Here's two shots one of my special projects (not quite finished but almost there): two bogs for water plants (i.e., two big galvanized containers) which I then landscaped heavily. The globes are solar lights which come on at twilight.
Brief explanation: regular readers may recall I participated in a film shoot while in SF last summer. This was that shoot, for a supremely fascinating indie called Revolutionary Sex by gifted filmmaker, Robert James. The film documents the history of the sexual revolution in San Francisco through the eyes of the IASHS's beloved founder, Rev. Ted McIlvenna.
