Mole Sculpture

More mounds keep appearing at the workshop - each morning another one, or two, or three.  I've raked them flat and filled in the hollows, but a very determined mole keeps digging!

The thought of moles immediately brings to  mind of one of my favourite Sarah Young prints 'The Early Bird Catches the Worm', where a tussle ensues between bird and mole for the worm. 

I always hope to see a little mole head appear in the top of the mound, but I never have.  While peering at the excavations I find bits of broken crockery, a piece with a blue pattern on, and a small curl of wire.  The soil is beautifully tilled, friable and fine - I've collected it in pots for planting my vegetable seeds when the time is right.
