Of a Statue and a Bench

“Have you ever noticed how few sitting places you find in private gardens? How seldom the versatility and importance of benches is considered? True gardeners, with their peerless taste, dexterity and inspired planting, never stop … To sit is almost an offence, a sign of depravity and an outrage towards every felicitous refinement that has gone into making a garden.”
– Mirabel Osler
