Dinosaurs and geese
Back to Harlow Carr Gardens... I try to go every six to eight weeks, as there is always something new to notice. It's such a peaceful environment too, despite its popularity. The car parks can be packed but you rarely feel the gardens themselves are too crowded.
The dinosaur willow sculpture was one of several dotted around as part of the summer attractions for children. I really liked it. It looked both quite realistic and also oddly friendly.
The geese meanwhile are one of the exhibits in the autumn sculpture trail. Amazing what you can do with some chicken wire. The artist is Carol Sterritt. I think she has captured the 'jizz' (can you tell I was once a keen birdwatcher?) of the birds really well.
