Art in the Garden – Hampshire

This is the second time I have exhibited at this summer long exhibition at Sir Harold Hillier Arboretum near Romsey.   Arriving with a car full of tools, willow flowers and willow, I found three heavy silver birch trunks lying on the ground close to where I was to have my installation.   I dug deep holes it the sticky clay soil and had help lifting the trunks into them.  I balanced on a ladder as I attached the flowers, making sure they were going to be strong enough to survive the vagaries of the next 5 months’ weather.
