Cool sculpture/use of a dead tree

During half term we went to stay with my mum and dad in Ripon - here we are going out for a pre bedtime walk :)

This tree is in Spa Gardens and has been transformed into an Alice in Wonderland themed sculpture. Lewis Carroll was said to have gathered some inspiration for his book from visits to Ripon Cathedral when his father was a cannon.

Cheshire Cat and The Queen of Hearts

My mum (she wasn't in the book!)

More characters

It's very cool to look at and find the characters :) Well I certainly enjoyed it! There's also something satisfying taking your children to places you played as a child and watching them climb the exact same trees!
