Our Neighbors At The Park Are Busy

Folks were working today on building a nice bench around a couple of trees so that they can take a shade break while working on their plots.

Stone Sculptures at the Market

If you have a sense of whimsy and are looking for large garden or lanai art you really need to see the stone and metal sculptures of Dennis Bialek at the Sunday Farmers and Artisans Market.  As a volunteer gardener at the market, I particularly like the help from this volunteer.  I just wish he could work a little faster.Exhibition

His main form though is the creation of stone and metal creatures, Frogs, Turtles and Birds of various sizes.  Here is Dennis with one of his larger pieces.

Exhibition

Made of natural stone, metal and glass these are all amusing and amazing.

and even manage to seem amused themselves.  Dennis can be reached at stonesnowbirds@gmail.com but you should really stop by the market to see the ever changing works.

How did you carve your turkey?

If your carving knife seemed  a little dull and you wish it was REAL SHARP you should bring it to the Sunday Farmers and Artisans Market in the History Park at 501 Shreve Street in Punta Gorda.

Tom Fulwider can make it work like new.

Knives, scissors and garden tools will serve you well again.
