it's pretty, but it starts at late middle age, just before the onset of autumn.

Life begins at 40!

"That's fantastic.

An original piece in the style of one of my favourite artists, Andy Goldsworthy."

Sorry, this is EXACTLY like an Andy Goldsworthy. Nothing original here at all.

Flowers aren't original either.
Buts lots of plants make them.
Gratitude and props to Andy Goldsworthy.
But we should all be encouraged to do this
kind of stuff, and not sitting in the quiet of nature
thinking we're making an "Andy Goldsworthy".
That would be ridiculous.

We are all artists.
