Our Garden@19. A garden blog following the year, preparing to open for the NGS, while enjoying visiting gardens, the beauty of nature, the plants, the wildlife and a sanctuary to relax in.
If you are thinking about tea and cake you are ready.
We are always thinking of tea and cake in the garden!
Yes please Brian - mine's a slice of carrot cake and coffee if you have some - I can't abide tea :) Your visitors certainly have plenty of choice when it comes to finding a comfy perch to sit, sip and gaze from but as you say it's difficult to sit in your own garden. Your eyes start to wonder and that's fatal.
Coffee is always available along with tea for visitors.We will hopefully have more time to sit and enjoy the garden after the end of the month.
Seating is so important in a garden, especially when you have visitors coming. It really is so hard to sit for more than 10 minutes in our own garden, but we try to stop working for regular coffee breaks and even ice cream when it is too hot to work!
My favourite seat is the recliner in the summer house, I sit there with my eyes closed planning!!!
I've never given much thought to seating in the garden - for the reasons you mention! But I can see that I've been missing an important feature... :)
There is nothing better than sitting in your own garden on a summers evening listening to bird song sipping a class of wine.
Looks as though the garden must be ready for opening. Always good to have plenty of seats in a garden and you have a good assortment.
The seating areas may be ready but there is still plenty to do over the next two weeks.
Tea and Cake? Silly question Brian :)You are almost there Brian, those two weeks will just fly in. Nice seat and table and they all look good. Your garden is certainly a welcoming spot for all those visitors. Seating is something I lack in the garden, thankfully I don't have many visitors to cater for. Family and friends are used to me pulling out the dining chairs.
It is nice to have seats in different parts of the garden, and certainly, in our garden you can follow the sun/shade according to your preference.
Love the teahouse winter view. A scene like that makes winter much more bearable. Had to laugh at your comment on In a vase on Monday as I was mentally humming the next line of Ellington as I read Cathy's post.
Thank you, the oriental garden does look good in winter time.You can't beat 'That Jazz'! (See Rambling in the Garden).
Very best wishes for your open garden. A lot of work and not a lot of sitting for you. Except, I suppose, for testing the views from each chair. You could spend a day doing that . . . just checking . . .
Thank you Lucy, We will enjoy the rest of the summer sitting in the garden. ( When we can)
