Thanks for stopping in! Since I am as interested in nature as I am in puppetry, my thoughts here will be about both. My old house in a little neighborhood along the river provide me with daily opportunities for enjoying nature. I have a garden,two apple trees (which I love to climb and prune) plus a bit more lawn than I'd like. I plant various shrubs and things to create pathways. From the back of my studio I can look almost directly down at the river. There is almost always someone paddling by; Mr Beaver, Ms Muskrat, The Otter twins- Nellie and MInnie, plus lots of ducks and geese - and the occasional human.
