Newbry Hall sculpture park

We had a lovely day at the Newbry Hall sculpture park. Newbry is our favorite gardens and although we have been many times it was still wonderful. Before we went around the garden we took a look in the wood at the sculpture's. They change the sculptures every year and they are for sale. I have chosen a few which were of interest to Robert and I. There were plenty that I just didn't understand.
