Life in gardens: topiary seat

Interesting garden seat, France, Library of Toulouse:flickr

Deux femmes assises dans un jardin” (two women sitting in a garden), France, between 1859 and 1910, by Eugène Trutatvia Bibliothèque de Toulouse Commons on flickr.

On this clipped green throne, she could take in the sun and still be protected from the chilly winter or early spring breezes.

We can make do with so little, just the hint
of warmth, the slanted light.

Molly Fisk, from “Winter Sun

    1. I love the way the earth is mounded up to make the seat and the hedge curves around the mound on the right side. It’s also like something in a garden illustration or tapestry from the 1400s.
