It seems like quite a while since I have taken you back to the secret location of my first art installation and shown you what has been happening there. Last time I showed you it I think there was still snow on the ground. So much has changed since the forest has woken up after such a long hard winter. The area was also hit be a dramatic wind storm while I was in Austria and so many of the trees had fallen over I was really concerned that their would no longer be an art installation but it seems as though the trees that I chose to lay my stone and crocheted pieces down next to were unharmed. Nature has begun to enter into a symbiotic relationship with the lace pieces. This is most evident with the growth of trout lily plants through the lace matrix. The moss on one of the tree pieces has started to grow over one edge. The other lace piece that was tucked into an edge of rolled birch bark has started to become a home for little insects and a family of mealy bugs. n the dead leaves just to the right of the stone I found a morning cloak butterfly resting its wings. All around I spotted white and red trilliums, trout lilies, ferns, the sporophytes of moss and other wild flowers. I almost forgot the pair of darling slugs that were at the base of the tree.
