Art in the Park

Yesterday we took a trip with friends to visit the Art in the Park exhibition at Harold Hillier Gardens.  I really love it there and so does Sam.  If I could drive I’d definitely get a pass as they seem to have some fabulous weekend activities.  Can get there by public transport but is a trek.

We were both expecting a quickish morning trip but ended up there for most of the day, rushing back as otherwise I’d have come home to a locked out cross teenager.  There is so much to see and explore even without the art trail.

It has to be said some of the sculptures were really not to my taste but there were some really lovely and interesting ones too. These are my favourites.

There are more sculpture photos on the Facebook page. Sam did look at the sculptures but much more time was spent playing.  Although the gravity defying anvil intrigued him and he loved the man coming out of the ground.

It’s also a fabulous place for watching wildlife.  The borders were teeming with bees and you could see tongues coming out! There’s something about robins, have to love a robin! 20160912_34 20160912_74
