September 2013: Sherryl creates wonderful concrete leaves out of real leaves. She and I bartered for some of my earwarmers in exchange for one of her concrete leaves. I love the non-native-to-MO Empress Paulownia trees. They have humongous leaves and grow like weeds. In fact, there is one that keeps getting sprayed to death but grows back in one of the ditches at the Dewey. I picked a few leaves for her and she made me a sculpture with one. Love it!
Since it's hard to travel with breakables, it may end up in Justin and Brooke's flowerbed.
