Ah, Margie, you've floored me once again with your creativity and connection to the natural world. It doesn't surprise me that your crocheted beauties and your covered stone look right at home where you've placed them. I look forward to seeing how they evolve and return to their origins.


j'adore comme t'on intervention sur cet arbre !


Hi Margaret - I absolutely love the concept of this art work - environmental art is so fascinating to me - and cannot wait to see your documentation of the process as it unfolds. My kids and I often set up little rock exhibits at our park and every now and then someone moves them around which amazes us - who were they - what were they trying to say back to us. I wonder if anyone or anything will move your pieces around?!


I'm totally transported, Margie. As I'm looking at your photos, I'm listening to Celtic music (mostly harp), and I think it's so appropriate. You made me feel like I was going down down down in the forest's ground, and got the size of Alice (in Wondeland) ... and your covered stone gets much bigger than me ... oh the dream you're making me have today, Margie ... it just feels fantastic.
The lace has something lichen-y to me. I'll follow the evolution & the integration of your pieces of art into Nature, with lots of magic in the eyes. It will be the most wonderful show.
Thanks so much for sharing with us, Margie. Thanks so much.


gorgeous in every way.


Yes, I felt it all the way down here in the south. Lovely. Thanks.

Oh my gosh, this is sooo beautiful. I love the concept and the execution of course is divine. Thanks for sharing this, I can't wait to see how it evolves.

The lacy crochet on the bark really looks as if it could have grown there. This is a wonderful idea, I can't wait to see the progress reports.


Lovely! And you reminded me to post some of my son's rock art work. We saw the documentary Rivers & Tides which chronicles the work of Andy Goldsworthy and my son was totally inspired! If you have not seen the documentary or don't know Goldsworthy work, you must check it out.
Thanks for brightening my morning!


I love it, and the best thing about it is that it's a secret. Wonderful!


Your photos and work are lovely. Andy Goldsworthy would be proud of his daughter.


Love this wonderful beginning of a journey. Can't wait to see how this progresses. The idea reminds me of the apple tree in my childhood back yard. My grandmother told me that bubble gum never deteriorates - so i blew a bubble and stuck it to the underside of a branch on that tree. It took 4 years for that bubble to burst.


just gorgeous! i really love that last shot. i love how your work looks like lichen growing on the tree trunk.


Awesome! I especially like the
dollie tucked into the bark of
the tree photo!

God Bless You and Yours
and Your Creative Life!!!


Your magic seems so effortless. I'm so excited to watch this journey... this is way too fun!


Maggie I loooooooooooooove your installation!!!!

Forest art!!


I love this! Nature is art. Art is natural. Thank you for sharing your secret!


i love the lace coming out of the birch bark (?)

we were fortunate to have andy g. visit alaska and do an installation with ice that had to be "found." it was so fun to be in the know and find it. i would love to stumble upon this crochet being covered by nature thing.


What we are doing to the forests of the world is but a mirror reflection
of what we are doing to ourselves and to one another.
- Gandhi

"... the very process of the restoring the land to health is the process through
which we become attuned to Nature and, through Nature, with ourselves.
Restoration forestry, therefore, is both the means and the end, for as we
learn how to restore the forest, we heal the forest, and as we heal the
forest, we heal ourselves.
- Chris Maser, Forest Primeval

love your newest art margie,
Loads of love,
Rane and family


Oh, to stumble upon this in the forest! So looking foward to seeing the evolution of this "project" through your eyes. You've chosen such a great time of year to start this. It will certainly change with the passing days, nights, and seasons, likely in some unexpected ways, I'd venture to guess.
Have been catching up on the last handful of your posts and, again, am stunned by the individual and overarching beauty of each and all of them together.


you always inspire me! oh to be the lucky wanderer to come across your works of art in this outdoor gallery. i will anxiously await mother nature's addition to your collaboration. the photos will be ethereal, i just know it.


this is so special, margie. what lucky people- those who might stumble upon this on their sunday walk!


Wow. This piece is gorgeous--both the concept and execution.
I can't wait to see more.


so special!
i wish i would stumble upon something so lovely in the forest.

i love that this is in a secret location. hush hush, only the trees know.


This is very Andy Goldsworthy-esque. I love the idea and thank you for sharing it.
