Because I visit the park almost everyday I have become friends with many of the other regular park users. Recently one of them had a dinner party where most of the guests were people who met at the park and have since become good friends.
It is a four seasons representation of our favorite park.
In February of 2011 a huge cottonwood tree fell across the stream.
Unti this tree fell it had housed a family of owls for several years.
Small fondant flowers represent spring, those are my binoculars on the tree.Glory (the collie) & Lola (the basset hound) are standing in the blackberries, representing summer.
It’s difficult to tell in the picture but the top is a loped off of one of the plastic evergreens. It represent where someone poached their Christmas tree from the park.
The people hosting the party served the cake again the next day when they had guests from Korea & Brazil over for the day. I understand they had quite a time explaining not only the significance of the cake to “our park” but explaining why we as Americans incorporate the old world tradition of the Yule Log in our holiday celebrations.
