Progress, slow but steady

Someone who will remain nameless installed the turtle in a hole about 5 inches too short for the post.  That same person almost injured themselves trying to lift it out with straps.   So until I can find a few guys to help me drag it out the turtle is sitting up on a log.  I have to say the state of preservation of the poplar logs makes me wish I'd made them bring in something more durable, rather than working with what came down right there. Lessons learned.

The rabbit from several years ago is still looking pretty good, however. Locust is a really durable wood, I was struck by how the sun was angled just so to put a highlight on its eye.
