Finally I am back after a long break away. I was initially unwell with the world's grottiest (filthy)cold. It turned me into a spluttering mess and I actually resided in my bed for at least four days. I was off work for the week and managed to turn a few heads when I returned to work with my barking cough. That being said it was more viral than anything else, my nasal passages remained relatively clear of any green mucous..thankfully...but my head did suffer from headache/flu symptoms. Enough! Once recovered I have been slow to return to blogging. I have happily visited others but the effort required to actually start writing evaded me. My crafting efforts started off slowly but I am back to producing with gusto...finishing off and starting anew.
I note I haven't as yet showed you the Tickle tank and will do so now.
Wow it seems like so long ago that I went to Mount Barker to investigate a large water holding tank that has been converted by an artist couple into a home. The block of land that it stands on is not a large one, but the gardens that meander around the tank and the little nooks and crannies that are made into little outdoor rooms for sitting are lovely.
As you enter the garden you find the blue room. mosaic water feature made from recycled goods
Old concrete drain pipes recycled into chairs with etched hearts and roses
from purple to oranges. Even the rocks get a paint treatment
Sculptural forms nettled in every nook and cranny
Wooden birds, handmade
A view of the artist tower
Mermaids in the garden
If only they could talk
More birds and iron garden stakes
