A winter garden

The sun is shining and it’s a provincial holiday. Today is the perfect day to visit the Leo Mol Sculpture Garden.

Temp: -5°C feels like -10°C

The hours on the front gate. Keep in mind that all the sculptures that I show you today are life sized.

This gives you an idea of how close the sculptures are to each other. In this photo there are five sculptures. Can you see them all?

Next to the "Golden Boy" this sculpture of the "Boy and the Boot" is Winnipeg's most popular sculpture. This is the sculpture that welcomes you at the second entrance.

The park was very busy today and parking around the pond was at a premium. I often had to wait for people to get out of frame to get photos with no one in them.

Until next week.
