But I can't go to Kew tomorrow as I'll be at Crafting at Ally Pally (spending...) so decided to go today - and got a sneak peak at the Sculpt at Kew exhibition that opens on Monday - obviously these things take time to install., so there were plenty - most probably - ready (though not all had their labels up)
I arrived at 8, as they opened the gates (only till the end of the month, that summer early opening has shot by) and went in.
Obviously not much change since Saturday to this shot!
but I did like this one, and it was interesting to walk by it again later when the position of the sun had moved so the shadow was shorter and stretching in a different direction
(once I started walking across the grass my feet got wet through my boots, need to re-waterproof them!)
again, we'll find out when the sign goes up!
and also love how the face has ivy leaves cut into the "flesh" - the holly and the ivy (Nooo, don't think about Christmas, it's too early!)
Liked this inverted duck!
Big Turning Cheetah, by Jan Sweeney
he's done a good job, as the shape did remind me of a horse as I approached.
As I approached this one, I was reminded of the wild beasts made in a similar style at the Tower of London....
I went past the druids into the Princess of Wales glasshouse..
so that is my week off - another 11k walked, and given that on Monday I forgot to measure it, but it must have been about the same, that's quite a few miles walked this week!
I can't believe given the forecast for the week, that I only got wet once!
I headed home. Glad that I didn't need the underground given the latest despicable terror attack that happened this morning not long after I got to Kew and that I had been listening to the news of on my radio whilst walking round (or that it had happened earlier in the week). Glad also that no-one was killed - if it had detonated fully, it would have been so much worse.
Hope you've enjoyed this latest virtual walk, and that some of the sculptures appeal to you - as I said, there are 30 altogether and I'll share some more (and possibly some of these again) next time.
If you are in the area, they are there till mid October.
