Some really creative thinking there! That would look great next to a fireplace, or anywhere in a log cabin style house.

Yes, Double dutch is when you jump two ropes, each swing in an opposite direction. A real challenge but once you're inside the loop (The challenging part) it's really quite easy...

I backtracked in the thread to take another look. It is the one created in yellow...By Jeanne

Our local Master gardeners have been creating some pretty awesome brick-art.

Those are part of the Children's Learning Garden at the Master Gardener's demonstration gardens at Harmony.

This summer will feature the completion of the beaver pond and beaver house, complete with beaver replicas.

The grand opening for the Children's Learning Garden will be on the 25th of June.

Ahhhhh You recognized them.
Did you by chance have anything to do with their creation?
Please tell your other half, the central gazebo was absolutely gorgeous when it was in full bloom!

Could you by chance take and share some photos of the beaver pond and the house when it's complete? Am I correct in assuming it to be man made like the underground tunnel? Tunnel photos would also be worthy of a share. Everyone worked so hard creating that for the children.

Give me a POKE when the time is near. I'd like to attend if I'm in the area.

The brick art was done by the same local artist that did the big mural. She got into the MGV program a few years ago and is an enthusiastic contributor to the Children's Learning projects.

I'll try to remember to put up some photos of the completed beaver pond project, but that won't be finished until early summer. I helped get the liner in for the pond, but the vast majority of the work has been done by a new MGV member.

They've got mounted weasels in the tunnel already and are now working on getting a woodchuck (groundhog) and a bear in there.

There's a brochure on the UWEX website that has all the dates and descriptions of the events and programs that you can print out:

Why thank you NEWisc!
I met and had spoken to the girl that was about to paint the mural. I offered my help but she never gave me a call.
Not knowing my artistic background, I can see why she might choose to paint it all on her own.

Mounted animals as in Taxidermy mounts?
My concern is....Is there enough circulation in the tunnel to keep them from mildew or are they brought into the tunnel only as needed?
If they are left in the tunnel WATCH the nostrils and around the eyes...That's the first area to show signs of deterioration. Their chemical process is NOT enough to keep that at bay! If you notice mildew....Take them indoors, wipe as much away as possible and lightly spray the area with Lysol.
That should halt it. Bet you didn't know I've also a bit of taxidermy skills under my belt!
