Soothing greens

An Enchanted little tower on a mossy bank. This was such fun to make. The roof is the inspiration; a particular kind of fungus that grows only on white birch trees. It was harvested and carefully dried last fall. Porcupine quills form the window panes. Tiny tree fungus from another source decorate the sides. Cedar root "stairway" leading up to the tower was collected from a riverbank close-by...the river had peeled it nicely. Flowers were from my garden...thank you garden.

A place of refuge from a crazy world. Enjoy !
