Greetings to my dear readers and friends – and adoring fans – around the world,
Paprika and Oregano decided to take advantage of my visit to go someplace they’d never been before: The Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton, New Jersey. This 42 acre park-like setting has over 270 sculptures of all styles tucked into shady coves, in bright meadows and amid stands of colorful flowers.
We meandered past ponds full of blooming lotus blossoms, while iridescent blue dragonflies danced around my head. The dragonflies were pretty, but I was concerned that they might get snaggled up in my beautiful braids. I squealed and ducked a lot when we were near the pond.
We were encouraged to interact with or touch many of the sculptures. That was all the permission we needed to be goofy – and we didn’t need much encouragement!
As Paprika said so eloquently, “Art should be experienced, not described.” So, here are a few snapshots of our favorite moments of the day. (Click on any of the images to get to the image carousel with captions.)
Yours in flatness and love,
