Those stick houses are something else! Going through the photos they reminded me of the wooded area behind my house when I was a child. It was full of bamboo plants and other things including lots of poison ivy. However, we still ran around in our bamboo forest playing hide and seek. I bet we could have woven it together and made all sorts of things. These houses are cool.

I love all this texture. The stick houses are great - I wonder if the 3 Little Pigs know about them.

So very true. We have one of these stick houses a couple of hours away from me, and my plan is to go see it soon!

Oh very cool! I am often in awe by the vast variety of tones, hues & shades found in just one color name.

Hey! Great stick houses! My kids would have loved playing in them when they were younger -- if kids are allowed anywhere near them, that is.

How creative! I was curious to see the big picture ... and there it was, in the end :)
Willow-tree branches are very pretty in color -a lot he shades from brown to burgundy red ... and how one can build almost anything from them!
