Tuesday Thoughts: More art in the park

more images from rufford park...
the first pic is of the piece at the entrance to the sculpture park - i love its sinuous shape, and the stark sycamore behind it - gorgeous!!
as you follow the path in front, adam beckons you... he's a pleasant enough chap, but don't accept any proffered apple!!
the celtic arch leads you into a new play area for littlies - a celtic village for them to run around - assuming they're not too terrified by the fearsome dragons guarding the entrance!!
then the last two pics are of an ancient hawthorn tree - don't you just love how the trunk twists and turns? in the last pic, you can see a glimpse of a concrete sheep on a bench... usually it's joined by the farmer - you can just make out the lighter coloured wood where he was sitting! but he's being repaired -sitting out for 25 years in all weathers have taken their toll - poor chap...

and there you have it - a quick look at a wonderful parkland, where some inspired people are thoughtfully enhancing nature's beauty.

I'm delighted to see this installment of photos of art in the park. It makes me want to be more attentive as I walk through the world to see what 'art' exists in ordinary places.
Hugs and blessings,

Hi Claire, I LOVE Rufford Park, and Belton House for that matter. Two of my fav books when I was Esther's age were Moondial and Secret World of Polly flint. Full of magic, and set locally. You can imagine how often I dragged dad out there to look around :)

That Celtic arch is just so very cool!

Wonderful! I love how the sculptures highlight and work with the trees .. and just adore the hawthorn.

I will have to visit if I'm ever up that way :-)
