All Mimsy were the Borogoves...

During lunch I try to escape the air-conditioned, computer screened environment of my work and go for a walk out there in the real world. Luckily, nearby is the city's largest Botanical Gardens. This place really is great for the body, mind and the spirit; I never tire of my walks there.

Amongst all of nature's wonders there's a growing number of public and private sculptures nestled in alcoves and detours. Some are quite delightful.

When this one (below) was being installed the day I walked past, I honestly thought it was a creatively mellifluous version of a park bench. In actual fact it turned out to be a musical instrument.

I'd like to think it could be both.
