Nymans Gardens.. walking in the Woodlands. a new discovery!

When I was last at Nymans I asked about a sculpture of a Kingfisher that I'd heard about - the sculpture had been made using a dead tree.  I was advised that it was in the Woodland Walks.. I'd never heard of these, despite visiting the gardens many many times.

Today I was meeting my friend IHD, so we decide to explore this.  And I'm so glad we did!!  It's very steep in places and today the ground, despite the earlier rain, was dry,

I think this may be another sculpture in the making?

We set off through the woods.. the light wasn't very good at all so not good for photography!

and we found... the Kingfisher sculpture... amazing detail!

We sat and drew breath as we looked out over the lake.

Further on we came across the other sculpture (by David Lewis) of a Toad with ferns and a stag Beetle..

Then off through the woods again..

This time, getting nearer the main park of the gardens but we came across this 'arch' across the path.  Very imaginative work!!

A drink to quench our thirst from our efforts before setting of in our respective directions to home.  A lovely walk - thanks IHD for your company :D.

I marvel that over on your side of the pond you can go to these government estates to see such beautiful nature. Over here in the US we visit state and national parks in order to see such beauty. But we don't get so see such awesomely carved artwork out in the woods!
