As the solstice brings longer days, my brain is moving towards seed starting, and retail displays.
Last year we loved starting the season with our Sweet on Spring celebration. Now it's a ritual. Scotty is now busy working on the main display.
One winter, about 10 years ago, we visited friends in Tucson. Scotty was so taken with the Sonoran desert that he built a 9 f00t tall metal and stucco saguaro cactus. It has lived in a corner of the shop ever since. A few weeks ago, he moved it over in front of the wood stove and began his winter art project. It is amazing!
