Magic in the Woods: Part 2

I have been posting a bit this winter about the thrill of finding the unexpected in the ordinary. Whether it's a red cardinal brightening up a winter landscape, or little gnome-houses planted on a walking trail, these are the reasons I continue to believe in wonder and the power of the imagination.

This past weekend I visited the deCordova museum in Lincoln Mass, and was absolutely delighted with the outdoor sculpture park, accessible any time of year. Here are some highlights:

Rain Gates, 2000, Ron Rudnicki

Bark Balls, 202, by Caroll Spack

The Musical Fence, 1980, Paul Matisse

A Mile from Any Neighbor from Walden, 1999, Christopher Frost

Cones, 2006, Ronald Gonzales
