Nymans Gardens... walking through the woods..and the sun shone.

Well... dull, dull and dark grey skies today.... when I met a friend at Nymans Gardens

It was very mild and we set out through the garden shop... looking very festive.

The Christmassy bit of Nymans this year is on a Gilbert & Sullivan them

The Sorcerer was in the Rose Garden.

HMS Pinafore was on the main lawn

The Mikado on top of the viewing point

Dreadful light again which doesn't bring out the colours.  Equally, it had suffered a bit in the very strong gales we've had over the last couple of days.

Enlarged detail.. the pink/silver are shiny sweet wrappers

Off through gardens

and then we came to Iolanthe

with trees dressed with Fairy Wings

By now the sky was a bit brighter so off for a very very muddy/boggy walk through the woods - well worth it though

The Owl Sculpture

A two-seater bench

Kingfisher sculpture

and another great sculpture giving home to various fungi

and then - the sun came out!!!

and the 5th one we found... the Gondoliers

Stopped for a bite to eat, chap and a cuppa

Me? the usual fruit scone...

By the time we left it had clouded over again... but great to see the sun even if only for about half an hour
