Art break

For almost 5 years, The Gambler and I lived close to The Royal Botanical Gardens. Today we decided to take a trip there.There are a few art exhibits on right now scattered amongst the gardens. This cube made of all of the wood (down to the branches) harvested from a tree is nestled beside its trunk. It's quite the contrast with the amount of empty space in the forest that was previously taken up by the tree.

There was quite the downpour while we were wandering around - even the sculptures looked uncomfortable.
The Gambler unzips a lawn.
Blue nettle - apparently it can be made into yarn.

Speaking of yarn...

August 15a
Somerset thinks that I have knit up a bit less than half of the yarn I started with. This might end up being more of a triangular scarf than a shawl per se.

That looks like such a great place! I love the zipper and the wood art.

The shawl looks lovely. And just remember what amazing stuff blocking can do to the size of a shawl...

Wow - the cube is a real stunner - really graphic. Judging by the size of the stump, it was a big, old, tree. I would have thought the cube would be a lot bigger.

Unzipping the lawn is pretty funny!

Even the sculptures look uncomfortable, lol that was too funny.

And a lawn that zippers. What a great place.

Your shawl/scarf is looking beautiful - I love the colors.

The sculpture does look a bit uncomfortable - was one supposed to be lying on it's side or did it fall over in the rain?

Those gardens look so lovely! What a wonderful place to be able to visit.

The colours in the shawl/scarf are beautiful, can't wait to see how it turns out.
