September Sunset


 That time of year again! We’re temporarily hosting various bits of art around the garden as part of a sculpture trail taking place for the first time this year. A large piece, Close Encounter by Donald Foxley, takes pride of place in the Stilt Garden and has gegged in beautifully on the autumn sunset through Heaven’s Gate. We’ve been terribly unlucky this year as on the clearest nights, thick cloud has dominated the horizon and blocked the actual moment the sun dips away. Including on the very evening we hosted the sunset walk for visitors! So it goes.





 The sculpture trail continues this week, with all pieces up for sale! More information can be found here.

Dear Bertie - I love the way you have managed to capture the sculpture in the first photo - very well done.

Johnston's use of the view to the sky at Hidcote is truly inspired. Any sculpture set there could hardly go wrong! The simplistic lines of that one, however, is a great choice.

Hope the sky clears soon!

We could see that piece of sculpture in our garden. So let's get down to the nitty- gritty......how much is it?

Such a fabulous thing to host! Sunset still looks pretty amazing despite the cloud over.

Janet, this particular piece is going for £1,750!

Is that all? Perhaps we could offer the showcase it for them and they could give us a fee!
