I took the opportunity of visiting the Winter Gardens in Sheffield this week. This large wooden and glass structure building was opened in 2003, with a hotel on one side and the “Millennium Gallery” on the other. The exotic plants looked a bit small to begin with, but several years on, are beginning to get more established, and there are a couple of interesting water features installed. This one goes round and round, and there is another similar one nearby that stays still. I couldn’t see anything to tell me who they were made but , but I’d guess that the Millennium Gallery had a hand in commissioning them, as they like to collect and feature work from different local artists. Here’s the link to a site that tells you about the Winter Gardens anyway. https://www.sheffield.gov.uk/out--about/parks-woodlands--countryside/gardens/the-winter-garden.html
My little son loved the outdoor water feature with large silver spheres at the back of the gardens.

I bought my young son some candy floss from a stall at theGerman-style Christmas market on Fargate, and the last relics of it are meltingon the desk as I type this, rather like a small frosted pink glacier. This may be the nearest thing we get to snowthis year as the weather is predicted to stay mild this Christmas, which meanswe should have no difficulty travelling to see the family, or them t us, andthat suits me just fine. So it onlyremains to wish all readers a Merry Christmas and hope you will rejoin me againsoon for more art and craft related fun.
