Crazy Paving

Crazy Paving (By Inky)

Colourful trail leading up the garden path

rocky slabs laid at really strange angles

at first, you might think – some mad

zany designer had taken a hammer to your pavement, but

you would be wrong – each

piece has been placed on purpose

as you look carefully – each bit of stone comes into

view as part of the picture as a whole

in time you’ll spot a scene as the pieces come together

navigating their way down the garden, and

greeting visitors – welcome to our house!

The Arrival Of The Snowmen

Salford Quays,  22nd November 2018

Christmas is coming……

We might be in November, but we’ve had a bit of festive decoration arrive on the banks of the Manchester Ship Canal today

Four Calling Birds



A number of brightly decorated snowmen, have found themselves stood around and about in locations at Salford Quays.   From The Lowry to Mediacity UK,  They’re all based around Raymond Briggs’ original fun character and have been decorated by local children and young people in the area.

Its Been a buzzy few months for local artworks as previously we had Bee in the City land in Salford as part of the Hive in Manchester.  When they flew to pastures new, the Snowmen paid us a visit.  While the Bees raised money for the We Love Manchester Fund, This time all funds will go to BBC Children in need 

Feel free to comment on the snowmen I’ve captured….I’ll post more as and when i find them.
