Bangor Walled Garden Sulputures (Part 1)

Before I start my main post today, I would like to thank all those people who listened to the programme I was a guest on the previous Sunday 2 August .  If you missed it, you can still listen to it. The programme is called 
“Time of our Lives”.
You find it on IPlayer BBC Radio Ulster

I visited Bangor Walled Garden with my Nursing friends in June and there are 2 parts to this post.  The second one will be published this Wednesday.  We had a wonderful surprise as the garden was hosting a Sculpture Exhibition which they had incorporated very tastefully into the garden setting and that is what I will share with you today.  


Iris  by Artist Alan Finegan


This is the first view as you walk through the gate into this wonderful garden and these are some of my Nursing friends below.  We have a reunion three times a year and I organise the different places we go and visit.

As we walk through the second walled garden where there is a cafe, below I will show you a few plants from the garden but there will be glorious colour for you from this splendid garden on Wednesday.






I hope you enjoyed seeing the many sculptures in the walled Garden.

I am linking this post with Mersad's new meme called THROUGH MY LENS

Thanks for visiting and also to those who leave comments.

  1. I always enjoy sculpture and particularly out of doors.
    I couldn't understand the Fibonacci flowers. I would have expected them to form a cone or golden spiral.
    The March Hares are brilliant.

  4. I love to see sculptures within a garden setting. Some suit that garden very well whereas others possibly should be exhibited elsewhere. (That hare was magnificent).

  16. Oh wow what stunning sculptures and on display in such beautiful surroundings. I like them all but the stand put pieces for me is the horse creating the illusion of coming through the wall, but the hares are my favourite
