Kids love to play in water, but check the temperature first! These baby elephant and donkey sculptures are just the right size to play with my collection of kitchen items. Maybe I should put the adult sculptures in with the babies, to ensure their safety?

The children in the kitchen are playing on a teeter-totter. When they stand in just the right place relative to the fulcrum, the board is perfectly balanced and level. Balance is such a wonderful skill to display.

When I was a kid, I loved to arrange my toys and treasures in a themed tableau on window sills, tables, and other stage like spaces. So I tried some little baby animal sculptures for a little bit of whimsy in a life that is way too serious.

Skunk Cabbage, Early Blooms, Oil Painting a Day

First Flowers Spring

The snow melts more quickly around Skunk Cabbage. The leaf and flower bud actually generate heat to thaw holes in the ice and snow. They are often the first blooms you see in the spring, or smell in the spring as well. Deer seem to enjoy eating them, but maybe not in large quantity. They are not considered to be edible by humans. But often the huge leaves have nibbled looking edges.
