Cooler weather might be the perfect time to stroll Decatur's streets and take in the 2013 Decatur Sculpture Tour.It's a bit of a jaunt, and while a drive-by tour is possible, you'll want to pull over to get a good view of the pieces added since the tour started last year. These will be displayed until May.

“Game of Thrones” viewers might appreciate “Guardian” by Gary Hovey of New Knoxville, Ohio. What you won't see unless you get close to it is that it's made entirely of cutlery. Silver spoons, forks and knives merge together to form a dragon guarding the Old 27 Ice Cream Shop at 168 S 2nd St.

Curtis Delk Rose's “Going Back Home” like much of his work is made from a single piece of wood. It carries a message of infinity as his pieces have no beginning and no end point though this carries a certain orientation of up and down.

A striking piece, “Undetermined Impact,” was donated to Decatur artist Matt Miller of Cape Girardeau, Mo.

Huntington's Lawrence A. Wiedman's “Plodding Along” tortoise is made from a 200-plus-year-old walnut log.

Some of the work is for sale. See more at www.decatursculpturetour.com.

While you're in Decatur, you can also take in the 100-year-old Adams County Peace Monument.
