Cheerful carvings

Two trees cut down in their front yard on Turquoise Trail are now a handsomely carved bear and wolf! A beary merry bear indeed!

  1. Tree trunk sculptures are a great way to preserve a remnant of a fallen tree. Have you ever watched the carvers at the State Fair...quite remarkable skill. I bearly have time to check more blogs, so I'd better move along!

  2. Wow, very impressive- and I like the Xmas adornments. It keeps the wolf from the door, I guess ;-)
