Sea Art

Staying with the subject of art, I see Ruth Cutler is progressing nicely with her sea garden at the end of one of those fourteen car parks that adorn our front. Ruth, who I like to think of as Ramsgate's more talented (natch) answer to Margate's Lady of the Soiled Bedsheet, is transforming this patch of scrub into something a bit special with a briny twist.

I understand there were some terrific seaside natives growing there, which would have made splendid home grown fodder for the project, had the council not come along and sprayed it all with weedkiller a few days before she started (natch).

I wonder how much TDC are paying for it?

Not a lot my understanding is all they've done is donate the plot and Southern Water are the actual sponsors of the work.

It looks promising - anyhting is an improvement on the Pleasurama ghostland.

(The artistic garden) At least its a useful, long term contribution to the local peoples enjoyment of public art. Unlike the godawful elitest 'emperors new clothes' conceptual tosh delivered (at great expense) by the naive turnip conservatory 'arts' managers.
