My fireplace mantel decorations were bugging me. I felt like something was missing, or off. Sticks. Yes, that is what I needed. I needed some sticks. I wanted swirly, fun, willowy sticks that cost too much money for me right now to purchase. Sadness. I really wanted sticks.
And then it occurred to me that I have a ton of very cool looking sticks all over the telephone wires in the backyard. To the untrained eye, these sticks are ugly, an eyesore even. To my eye, they were perfect. But I’m not crazy enough to pull sticks down from electrical wires. Don’t be silly! That is what husbands are for.
While gathering sticks, I photographed the contrasting beauty of the garden with the beauty of my boys. They apparently like sticks too.
Boys, look at the beautiful flowers. GRRRRRRRRRR! ROOOOAAAARRRRRR!!!!
As long as I can have my sticks in the end, and they can have their sticks. We are all happy.
