Autumn Nests in the Parks

Last week when visiting the Parks my friends and I found a human sized nest.
It was left there by an artist fascinated by nests - Emma Kwan and despite the mighty power of Google that's about all I know about why they are there. The Parks boast an impressive array of benches but this interactive art makes the most delightful, cosy, fragrant place to sit and as it was apparently one of a series of six the 1TB went back today for a picnic in the nest and to see whether we could find the others.We only found three more of the giant kind this visit but very much enjoyed our autumn walk with special resting places. If you ever get the chance to sit in a nest I'd highly recommend it.
