bench copy

It was a Bank Holiday (funny expression, but we are used to it) yesterday and now this week is very sleepy and languorous as we all gear ourselves up for the back to work/new term mode that will be demanded of us very shortly. On the Post this week, four Country Living magazine postcards dating, probably, from about ten years ago. The Garden Bench was photographed by Linda Burgess, (whose beautiful cards we sell in the shop): this is exactly how a garden bench should look, only a philistine would cut back the ferns or weed the gravel. (That is probably a politically incorrect thing to say, but perhaps it’s okay in the context of weeds and gravel and benches.)
