Summer magic at Milner

Milner Gardens shows once again that it's about a whole lot more than flowers

Elsie Griffiths sketches beside some of her work at Milner Gardens on Saturday.

There was plenty of interesting art work, captivating photos, music, food and sunshine at Milner Gardens on the weekend, as the annual Art and Photography in the Garden took place.

The Mid Island Floral Art Club was back with a number of impressive displays, including A Mayan King by Finola Jones.

Not only did she decorate a sculpture with ferns, branches, leaves and flowers but she made a floral carpet out of colored sawdust as well.

This year they also created a secret fairy garden with the help of some children. These miniature wonders could be found reading by the pond, sleeping on a spider web or walking through a mini kingdom.

Other artists could be spotted in action around the gardens sketching, painting, making pottery and taking photographs.
