The fifth Sculpture in the Gardens is currently on display at the Auckland Botanic Gardens.  There are 20 sculptures of various sizes and mediums placed around for visitors to look at, discuss, vote for and purchase should you have a surplus of cash and a large park like garden.  Over the Christmas/New Year break,  we went to have a look at these.

They definitely provoked discussion from Miss B and Mr J.  The Egg Chair was a big hit with Mr J.  My favourites were: Waypoint, Khulu and Tiitipounamu.

Of course no trip to the Botanic Gardens can be had with out obligatory flower photos.
