From another day:
And back in the garden:
You can see some of the black zip ties sticking out and the areas not yet grown in with moss. But this sphere has perched atop the fence post for a week, persisting through heavy rains, some strong wind and hasn’t really dropped so much as a clod of dirt! So it is a pretty sturdy growing/living garden accessory. The moss should continue to grow and all the chicken wire will eventually be invisible. I’d like to try making some other shapes (kind of like topiaries).
I asked the Spy, “Now that I’ve made a ball I really could make most any shape. What do you think? Maybe I should make, say, a life-size baby giraffe garden sculpture in this same manner? Or what other shape or animal would you want?”
The Spy replied “You garden too much.”
