Six on Saturday With a Difference

I’ve missed two Six on Saturday’s so catching up. Last Saturday was the scattering of my Dad’s ashes off the Isle of Wight on a very windy, icy cold day and rocking boat (🤢). The weekend prior to that I had a short break in a very sunny St Ives, Cornwall. So I am being naughty and going slightly against the rules, again! I had intended to write this blog last weekend but didn’t manage it and I really did want you to see the photos I took.

Therefore it is photos of a beautiful garden in St Ives, although a couple of weeks late, I am sharing my 6. Barbara Hepworth’s sculpture garden contains over 40 sculptures, nestled in amongst plants. Each piece is numbered and there is a laminated sheet giving details, but I forgot to collect one so with apologies I can’t tell you anything about the sculptures, but hope you like them. It was fascinating looking in and around each piece to view a different aspect.

  4. Hmmm. You might read about a sculpture and what the sculptor intended it to represent and that’s what it becomes. Or you can just look and let your imagination run riot. Which is much more fun. I see the second as a rose bloom opening (probably nothing like the original intention) and the fourth as two people dancing, for example. And they all seem to “fit” their place. Nice.

    1. They made for creative photography, it was difficult to chose which 6 to add to the blog, but I used ones with the plants being very visual as it’s a garden meme.

  7. Not cheating at all – six things in a garden – sorted!
    I have a post about this garden with some details of some of the sculptures if you would like a look: https://smallbluegreenflowers.wordpress.com/2015/07/04/art-en-plein-air/
    Haven’t been into St Ives since May! Maybe I will do one last visit this year before the end of the month though I imagine the plants will have pretty much finished.

      1. Thanks Ronnie. I must write a post from my visit in May. Annoyed I haven’t been back since, but we avoid St Ives during the summer months and time has slipped by so quickly!

  8. Love this garden and have visited a few times, each time we visited Cornwall. So much inspiration to make your own, I carve wood, and sculptures do enhance a garden.

    1. I hadn’t been for many years and was so lucky that the weather was warm and sunny despite it being towards the end of October.

    2. It makes you realise that interesting gardens don’t just have to be full of plants.

  9. Somewhat inevitably, I live in Cornwall and it’s probably twenty years or more since I went to the Barbara Hepworth place. I like the idea of sculpture in my garden but the chances of finding something that both Sue and I like, and then being able to afford it, seem so vanishingly small that it’s not worth pursuing. Perhaps I could do my own.

    1. A friend of mine works with coloured glass and has a few items hanging from trees in her garden – very pretty.
