Red Coral Sculpture
I think she would like this year's drought proof solution. Needs no water but adds lots of color and sculptural beauty. It is planted with "Red Coral!"
It looks like Red Coral but it began life as a branch off one of one of my pasture Mulberry trees!
A few days ago I was cutting up a big branch to put it in the trash barrel admiring how beautiful the shapes of the branch tips were. I was also thinking about the famous glass artist Chihuly who has a glass sculpture exhibit at the Phoenix Botanical Garden. Then I remembered I had found a can of glossy red spray paint in the barn. I spray painted the branch ends, wired them together and placed them in the pot. I still need to anchor them in some mortar or plaster, paint that, then put them back in the pot and cover the base with shells.
