Botanic Gardens - sculpture

Today was a beautiful sunny day with blue skies, so we took a trip to the Botanic Gardens in the morning. Not having checked first, we weren't sure if the Sculpture in Context exhibition was already open, and were delighted to discover that it was.  We didn't get the list of sculptures, so I am sure we missed some but we really enjoyed our time out.

Here are some of the best pictures of the sculptures - there are more in a Google Photos album HERE if you are interested.

My favourite was definitely the costume-jewellery bird, I took at least ten photos. And the felted wool hanging in the Alpine House was really beautiful too, but hard to get a good photograph of. The wicker people and the deer both melt into the background but were very effective.

I'll be back with some photos of the flowers in the next couple of days...
