Friday Bench: Willow Reader

On view at Avebury Manor’s fab sculpture exhibition in the garden until October 13th. Unless it gets sold!

You can go for a wander though some of the other exhibits here.

Flames of glass

I saw these in Austria and was reminded of Kew’s Chihuly exhibition which starts next week. I see visitors there recently have had a sneak preview of some of the pieces as they were being assembled.

I made do with the advert I saw on the Tube πŸ˜‰

I can’t wait to see it πŸ™‚

Musing on Padlocks

I’m intrigued why people add padlocks to prominent public places like these I found in Liverpool recently.

Then I looked closer than usual and realised many are personal messages and commemorations, similar to those often seen on public benches, but usually for happier events. There are even companies who’ll customise padlocks for just such an eventuality.

And then, there are some padlocks which look like faces or even miniature works of art.

I shall look more carefully in future.
