Congratulations, NEWisc.

With a lack of winter weather for us, your photo was a welcomed sight.

Wow, what a nice surprise!

Thank you for all the kind words.

Linrose - Thank you for donating such a great prize! I really liked the description: "A slow, hot wind emanates from the sun itself, blowing the solar rays with its fiery breath. Marco Polo creates a sculpture of dramatic beauty. The freeform iron silhouette is centered by a mystical face of hand-painted ceramic."

I think I'll share it with the local Master Gardener Association. They've built some nice demonstration gardens that are open to the public, and I think it will be a nice accent to the work that they've done out there.
Age is a biological fact.
Old is a state of mind.
I will age, but I refuse to get old.

Congrats NEWisc! That photo makes me wish for a pair of snowshoes and a day to explore and enjoy the woods!

I like your idea of sharing with the MGA, so thoughtful of you. PM me and I'll get your sun sculpture right out to you.

I like donating prizes, how 'bout a new one for March? Books are always nice (hint, hint!!!)
