‘Cabin Creek’ by American sculptor Deborah Butterfield at Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park in Grand Rapids, Michigan, US. The material is bronze. (Using found wood, Ms. Butterfield first assembled the materials to form the horse, cast each piece in bronze, then reassembled the piece.)

A pair of stone sculptures at designer Rosemary Verey’s former home and garden, Barnsley House, in Gloucestershire, UK. The property is now a spa & hotel but I think the gardens have survived. Photo by Ely R.

‘Little Sparta’ a garden created by the collaboration of poet and artist, Ian Hamilton Finlay and Sue Finley, his wife. Based on the idea that a garden is a place for poetry, philosophy, and political thought, words are carved on stone and wood, etc. throughout the garden. It is thought by some to be Scotland’s greatest contemporary work of art. Located near Edinburgh in Dunsyre. Photo by wild goose chase/Fiona.
