sculpture in the gardens

I had read a bit about the Sculpture in the Gardens exhibition at the Auckland Botanical Gardens and was keen to check it out. After a perusal of their very comprehensive website I found out that it was free and that dogs are welcome on a lead. So on a gorgeous sunny summer's day, Bunny, Beth, Mikey and I embarked on a Saturday outing to the gardens in Manurewa. They are very easy to find. First left on Hill Rd after the motorway exit.

The sculptures are situated right in amongst the gardens and are fully accessible to the people viewing them. Sculpture that you can touch, view from multiple angles and interact with (as the artists fully intended). The thoughtful placement of the sculptures and plantings at the gardens are both creative and beautiful. I found wandering through them all to be quite inspirational. I'll let the images speak for themselves....



The exhibition is on until the 14th February. Check it out on http://www.aucklandbotanicgardens.co.nz/

  1. I love the brick boat - that would look great in your garden.
