Shuttlecocks



Although these photos were only taken two weeks ago, the scene has changed due to warm weather and rain.  The grass is green and the trees have buds.  There are 4 shuttlecocks on the lawns of The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art by
Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen.  This is the only one on the north side of the museum looking out toward the homes across the street.  I thought the one to the left looked slightly airborne.

Do enjoy your Sunday!

Gosh, that is different. I suppose it looks totally different when the grass is green.

I know that technically they are shuttlecocks, but to me they will always be birdies.
