Cheeseburn Sculpture Garden near Stamfordham, Northumberland is not open every weekend but it is open tomorrow and Sunday..that is the 3rd and 4th of September. I visited it last Sunday, admission was free of charge, a donation is suggested and appreciated and there is a tea room that offers fab cakes. There are nine acres of garden to wander around and enjoy. To find out more visit their web site. Here are a few of my photographs from last Sunday, between the rain showers.
I do like a good door in a garden wall and a shiny wooden looking ball balanced on a tree branch.
There were all sorts of spectacular ornamentation in the trees and the trees themselves were sculptural.
I really wanted to curl up in the arm of this one.
I spent a long time contemplating this shiny glass looking shape, it changes colour according to your angle of view and almost disappears when photographed. The garden plants were another highlight for me and I'll be sourcing a thalictrum like this one for my own plot.
So, if you like to buy art, look at art or just wander around a lovely garden and treat yourself to cake Cheeseburn Sculpture Gardens may be just the place to visit this weekend.
