I thought of shadow box too.
My other project was to clean up the handle on my 3/4 conduit bender.
It was nothing but thick rust because the powder coating went south and water got under it.
I hate powder coat for this reason.

Gonna paint it yellow with pink stripes.
No construction worker will get near it.

Lucky for me my neighbor has a peach tree, a branch of which hangs over our shared fence. This is today.

Spring is in full force here. So you know what that means. It's coming your way and it can't be stopped. Get ready for it.

Place has everything like a regular grocery store but more Hispanic oriented.
Even a huge meat market.
They are where I get a lot of my stuff.

Why is this pictuer here?
What is in it that has my interest?
It is an ancient olive press just so as you know.
What does something in the picture have in common with a vine or at least many vines?
How could that vine have influenced us up to this day and beyond?

I noticed right after I started growing beans that they followed right hand rule...but of course they grow the other way below the equator...don't they? Just like whirlpools!
