We love circus-y things in Spy Garden (click here to see us showing off more of our circus tricks). St. Louis has a wonderful circus arts school that offers many classes, including flying trapeze lessons (click here to check them out)! I am a proficient juggler, so naturally, juggling clubs while walking the slackline is coming soon. Ha! But for now, I’m happy to enjoy the tricks of the spring garden…

    A complete green thumbs up right back atcha Spies. What a brilliant spring post and that slack line looks awesome. Great job balancing and can’t wait to see the juggling with the balancing. I expect to see a “Spy circus coming to a town near you” in Launceston soon ;)

    Love these pictures! When you mentioned juggling I thought about what a master you are of juggling life, excelling in everything you do. You are a remarkable person and the world is a better place because of you. So glad one of your projects is this site. šŸ˜Š
