Finally getting close to wrapping up the 3rd camas plant. The black bits on the petals are crumbled up ashes from a book. I’ve run out of rebar and haven’t been able to find another source of recycled/reused material. The local Habitat for Humanity shops are totally empty (but have a great supply of hollow core interior doors for $7). When it comes in, people grab it quick. So, I’ve been looking at the local home improvement shops, but they don’t carry the lengths I want. Too short! Today, I have a couple of other places to check today while in Corvallis/Philomath. Who knew it would be this hard to find a material I felt certain would be in easy supply? If I can’t find the lengths needed, I’ll start strapping shorter lengths together. It will work somehow!
