Our picnic basket was out again for a visit to Leicester University Botanical Gardens last weekend. After B visited last year for the first time, this year it was my turn. A change of heart is the 12th annual sculpture in the garden exhibition which is on display until the 27th October 2013. We had a lazy picnic in the sunshine then whiled away a few hours by wandering around the gardens admiring the grounds and sculptures which add an extra dimension to the already beautiful gardens, there is something to see at every turn. I didn’t bake this time, though I would have liked to. Sometimes it’s all about seizing the moment and being spontaneous. This day was a case of last minute planning, grabbing a few snacks from the shop on our way and making the most of a beautiful afternoon in the sunshine.
Here are a few snaps from our day, the sculpture images are linked to the artist’s website so click on the image to learn more about the sculpture.
