A WALK ON THE WILD SIDE
While walking through the woods
for the season's first morel mushrooms,
my discoveries included . . .
Saplings and shoots
Medicinal 3-leaf trillium
White ash bark
Spring fed watercress
but, no morel mushrooms.
(That is, not yet!)

WOODTURNING AS FINE ART
The "Woodturners of St. Louis" club
hosted a rare treat for fellow woodturners
with a presentation by master wood artist, Nick Agar,
in Kirkwood, Missouri this weekend.
Agar is world famous for his unique
bowls, vases and wall sculptures,
all created on a wood lathe,
and special finishing techniques.
The metallic-looking bowl (shown above)
was created from start to finish,
before his captivated audience.
Agar lives in Devon, England
and lists England's royal family as some of
his best customers.

(And yes, that audience member is wearing
a solid wood-turned hat. Amazing!)
