Sculpture at the Botanic Gardens.

07 September 2017 23:36:35

It is that time of year when there is an exhibition of sculptures at the Botanic Gardens in Glasnevin. It started on Wednesday last and continues until 20th October, so plenty of time to get there. It has always proved popular with the members on the site. I am hoping to visit on Saturday afternoon as we will be in Dublin attending an event in the morning organised by the Irish Garden Plant Society.

We were in Castletownbere last July staying with Ann Parkinson (Ladygardener)  and we visited a garden near her home,  Mill Cove Gallery. This garden features sculpture that are for sale. It was nice to see them placed around the garden and none of them jarred with the surroundings. Some of them were familiar as they had once been exhibited in the Botanic Gardens. I am up-loading an album of Mill Cove Galley, which is in a most beautiful site on the Berara Peninsula.

Beautiful place, Mary. I love the Totem Poles, especially the first one which replicates a Ginkgo biloba leaf.

Lovely album, Mary. I love the woman sitting on the seat and the guy doing the sideways high kick. Must remember that place if we're down that direction sometime.

At that price Peter I think you will have to have an exhibition in The Scrub.
