ABC Wednesday - F is for Fancy Figures


Following on From my post of a Fortnight ago, this week I am bringing you more of the Fancy Figures we Found on our recent visit to Stapeley Water Gardens.


The First was not Far From the dog and these groups were just a little bit Further on.


This one even had a Fountain.


Stapeley Water Gardens is just outside Nantwich in Cheshire.

You can read this and more on the ABC Wednesday Anthology blog to which the best ABC Wednesday bloggers are contributing.

  1. That looked like a place to put on our list for places to visit next year.

    Drat - I thought I would be the only one with Fountain!

  4. Wonderful statues - looks like a great place to be.

    Cheers, Klaus

    P.S.: I find the description, that the "best" Bloggers participate in the Anthology thing a bit off the mark. I know a lot of most excellent bloggers, who prefer the old ABC over the new one, and just don't want to post there.

  17. This is a truly fascinating place! The sculptures seem to integrate beautifully with the rest of the gardens. I liked the little cherub sitting in the stream and spouting water through his pipe.

  18. The sculptures seem really to dance. I like the man observing them - he reminds me of a Brit I worked with who would be saying "Bloody 'ell" to those while admiring them.

  19. That's quite a variety of fancy figures, Gerald. Nice photos. I am taken with the juxtaposition of that sexy woman with the couple paying her no mind. Very interesting.

  20. Gerald, yet another batch of fabulous photographs - my daughter was amazed at the figures and wants me to take her there NOW!! (Quite demanding sometimes she is!!)

    Fabulous choice for F.

  23. I thought this sort of thing was only in mainland Europe. I am impressed. These are definitely worth the virtual visit.

  24. So charming, I've never seen a park like this. Brave Buskers, yes, all covered in white like alabaster.
    It was just strange to see my update on the CDP thumbnails, i thought I had removed my blog but it takes more than I thought!
