Maryland's Eastern Shore

Hello and happy Monday!

Hubby and I took an overnight trip to Maryland's Eastern Shore, visiting and staying at Solomon's Island Maryland. Our first stop was at the Ann Marie Sculpture Garden in Dowell Maryland. 


The Ann Marie Sculpture Garden consist of 30 forested acres with a walking path. The sculptures can be found all along the path and there was a collection of Fairy Gardens found in the forest. Some of the sculptures are permament and some are on loan. I am sharing a few of my favorites and a mosaic of the fairy homes and gardens. 



Triple Sheep


Name: Large head with Beard


Resting


The Cardinal


The Hand



Various fairies houses and garden were found along the path. 



The Junk Art made out of soda cans and tops and recycle trash. 




The wood carvings were awesome and some of my favorites found in the sculpture garden. 


I like this cute painting on the tree. 


Cute sculpture in the garden. I heard and saw some real birds walking on the trail through the forest like the woodpeckers and other song birds. No photos of the real birds.





Thanks for your visit today!  I hope you enjoyed my post and photos.

  44. Hi Eileen, I have always admired woodcarvers and the wonderful job they do showing us what the wood wants to become as they snip away with their tools and reveal something beautiful or mysterious inside that hunk of tree or wood block. It's amazing! Great post. I hope you are having a wonderful week.
