It was my first attempt and I made one or two beginner's mistakes.
1. Long grass and poorly raked up leaves tend to collect in the snow as you roll it around the lawn, giving your piece of art a ragged appearance;
2. Using gardening gloves to keep your hands dry is a great idea. However, if you're working with snow, clean all the mud off your gardening gloves first.
I have entitled the work "Snowdrop". I don't think I'll be worrying the Andy Goldworthys and Richard Shillings of this world. However, I like a challenge, so I am going to try and produce one seasonal piece of ephemeral art each month this year. Hopefully I'll have improved by December. The only way is up.
*It was very ephemeral - I looked out of the window a couple of hours later to discover that it had fallen over. I blame Bill the cat - he was hanging around looking shifty.
