Kew Gardens - David Nash

Cork Dome, 2012, Cork Oak
On a lovely day, Kew Gardens are always worth a visit.  At the moment sculptures, drawings & paintings by David Nash are the order of the day.  You can also go and see new sculptures being made at the Wood Quarry (till 24 September 2012)
 

The Cork Dome was my favourite.  It's a new work that was built on site at Kew.

I particularly like the textures when you get up close. Take a look at these ...

Don't forget to take in all the fun stuff at Kew though like the Xstrata Treetop Walkway and the waterlilies.  http://www.kew.org/visit-kew-gardens/whats-on/index.htm
