I felt rather wilted today as the sun beat down again. I drilled a hole in the bottom of the sculpture in order to stand it upright. I then set about getting the forms to be the right shape. I shall have a good look at it tomorrow morning to decide if I need to slim down the joints further. I think they are probably going to be about right once they have been tidied up. On a domestic note, a swarm of bees has taken up residence in an empty hive which is a joy. I love to see and hear their industry. I have also caught the naughty chicken who has been eating our eggs. In the hutch with yolk on her beak!
