There were some willow workshops held at Lotherton last year and there's now quite a few willow sculptures situated throughout the grounds. I've discovered that they were made by a lovely lady by the name of Wendy who is twigsandsprigs_ on Instagram, and it was Wendy who conducted the workshops there too.
As you come up the drive there's this cute little deer. I thought a deer had escaped from the deer park at first glance the first time I saw it.
This hare stands about five foot tall and he can be found by the side of the road as you drive round to the car park at the back of the estate. I think he's my favourite of all the willow sculptures.
The penguin is a handsome chap, he's located right outside the entrance to Wildlife World where you can see all kinds of animals and birds. A colony of Humboldt penguins live here and they're fascinating to watch.
The rest of the sculptures can be see on the Boundary Walk. The fox is right at the beginning.
What a fantastic sculpture the archer is. He even has arrows in his quiver.
You must remember to look up as you're walking otherwise you may just miss something, like this owl perched in the tree at the end of the Boundary Walk.
Apparently, there's also two squirrels but they're rather elusive, we haven't come across them yet but we're on the lookout.
Do you have a favourite?
I love these, they are all lovely so it's hard to choose a favourite but I think the deer just has the edge for meReplyDelete
Ooh, gorgeous and I can't pick a favourite. Possibly the list would be in this order......owl, hare, penguin, deer, fox and lastly the archer. Thanks for sharing, take care and hugs.ReplyDelete
These are all amazing! What a talented lady Wendy is!ReplyDelete
By the way, I suspect it's a blogger problem, but it took me 3 attempts to comment. It twice told me I had to sign in to Google - I already was! - but it worked on the third time.
Lovely post and pictures. How delightful, I like them all. xxReplyDelete
Definitely the hare! I would love one of those!ReplyDelete
Love that Owl. Hope you find the squirrels!ReplyDelete
They are all fabulous, Wendy is a very talented lady. My favourite has to be the hare.ReplyDelete
I like them all but maybe the penguin most of all, what a great place to visit, the sculptures are amazing, I hope you find the squirrels. xReplyDelete
Either the hare or the owl, or the deer, or maybe the penguin?ReplyDelete
The willow sculptures are all beautiful, but the hare would also have to be my favourite. XReplyDelete
Wow they are amazing, thank you for sharing your willow sculpture walk, I love the hare and the penguin.ReplyDelete
