Burghley House sculpture garden

burghley sculpture garden
I snatched a few minutes to sketch while Xavier rolled down the slopes of grass behind this sculpture at Burghley House sculpture garden. The little lump next to the second inverted obelisk is Xavier complaining loudly that I’m a terrible mother for not running over instantly to kiss bruised parts better. He cheered up soon afterwards when he got soaking wet in the Garden of Surprises where jets of water would suddenly spurt up from the ground or pour down from above as you walked through archways.

Oh lots more, but I was too busy entertaining Xavier to sketch it
