Samantha's birthday present arrived

Art Sculpture by Mike Durham


Yesterday Samantha's birthday present arrived at Bulldog Pottery.

This giant kinetic metal flower is the artwork of Mike Durham from Asheboro, North Carolina.

We are so excited and wanted to share this with all of you! It looks great in our garden outside of Bulldog Pottery. Yeah!!!

Each of the two layers of petals turns in a different direction and it really flies when it's a windy day like today

We have decided to move Audrey III to the other side to mark the entrance to the pottery.

If you think like my wife, an occasion such as the 40th calls for several months of celebration. So congratulations remain in order.

What a cool sculpture and nice when all the colors of summer have waned, happy belated birthday. I thought of you two today when I posted about a ground beetle on my blog, his head was so shiny I could see my reflection and that of the sky and clouds in his head. Insects are truly amazing.
