Off to Longcot to Visit Pat Elmore's Studio

It wouldn't just have been to Pat's studio if I hadn't arrived during one of the very welcome downpours today. Pat has many of her glorious sculptures around the one and a half acre garden which was looking very good today; I coveted a mermaid around the small pond, but didn't venture as far as the lake because of the rain.
If you have driven past Pat's house, next to the King and Queen pub on the main Longcot road, and wondered what lies beyond the gate, this September, do go and have a look at Pat's garden, her studio and of course her fabulous carvings. Even if you've been before, it's worth another visit, Pat is continually producing more sculptures.
One of her pieces would look so lovely in any garden.
So here's what I favoured for the brochure:
 I love this piece, isn't the bottom superb?
 Above and below gorgeous mermaids made from very tactile stone, the one above is no longer available, I should have taken notes on what they were made from, I'll email Pat and ask her to let me know
 Below two views of a glorious woman, very flexible

 And below a photo of an ostrich in the garden
 And a sweet lemon scented Magnolia
Pat will be opening her studio and garden both weekends, her website may give more details: www.patelmore.co.uk
And wouldn't it be lovely if we could raise money to buy the flock of sheep in the library courtyard?
