I went to Poland for a few days with Pat, really enjoyed it. We had room overlooking the river which was lovely. I've uploaded photos onto laptop so will blog about it in a few days. I intend to show a selection of pics on here but upload all of them onto Flickr so if people want to see them all they can. Also visited Yorkshire Sculpture Park earlier in the week; for the first time since I moved here - shame on me! It's a wonderful place. Stupidly I didn't think to take my camera so had to rely on my phone so only got a few pics. There are sculptures by many different artists; I didn't make note of them all. There was quite a large installation of sculptures by Miro and a small gallery in the same building as one of the restaurants/cafes showing limited edition of Miro prints. Also an installation named 'Family of Man' by our very own Barbara Hepworth. Oh I'm so fickle, after all Barbara Hepworth hails from Wakefield; where I now live; and I of course hail from Liverpool which is on the opposite side of the country. Though Liverpool is now in the county of Merseyside it was once part of Lancashire - do you know about the 'War of the Roses?' - enough said! hehe Many of the sculptures at the park are on loan from various parts of the world. I loved the little greenhouse that housed lots of plantpots with 'Word Poems' in; onlyh one of which I'm showing here plus info about the author. I could've reduced the image quality and taken more photographs but wasn't sure how well they would turn out, actually the last 2 are lower quality and are fine. This is only a tiny taste of what's on offer. The park covers 500 acres.
Thought I'd share this - it's nothing special except that I planted it up along with another for myself and 2 for my daughter whilst they were on holiday last October! Can you believe it? There were other plants in which died off and the pansies have taken over :-)
