There's a new art installation here in Ames: a willow-sapling sculpture by artist Patrick Dougherty. I've not been able to find many images online, but try this, this, and this. (It's a little weird to see a total stranger's weaving and cats in the first set, but whaddya gonna do?) Frankly, images don't capture the mystery and wonder of the actual installation, or the amazing aroma of all that willow bark and leaf. Marvelous!
