Very interesting place! More wood sculptures! The tree/owl one looks like a Totem pole. The Common Mahonie is a Holly bush..grape holly it looks like. Also known in English (or it's Latin name, probably) as Common Mahonia. Has a pretty cluster of yellow flowers. I love your exploration of the town..and the pics in the snow make me COLD!
I love the building and think we found something to build when you get back home!
