Dave and the peewit in my sculpture mad garden


Five years ago I found myself unable to access my own blog but by some mysterious process I can again. This is my dog and my peewit aka lapwing in my garden. Decades ago there used to be large flocks of peewits in Wiltshire but alas no more. They had a haunting cry, As a schoolboy I rescued an injured peewit and released it back with a large flock when it had recovered.

I got out my shears and sculpted this box bush into a head for the Box and Gorse Monster in my garden. Behind is the Yew Monster which  I made ten years ago or so from an old yew hedge planted in 1926.
