Unless places are pre-designed to sit and ponder or simply enjoy the view, putting them into a garden design afterwards can create an eyesore or at the very least a distraction.
Ponder points are scattered around the HoBB Gardens – many secret and hidden, and some formal and fine for party gatherings and long evening banquets with fresh friends – whoops, I think I should have typed ‘refreshed friends’!
I think everyone likes to ‘discover’. I also think that ‘forgotten places’ can be more fun than remembered, well manicured ones. This is not leading up to a reason for neglecting parts of the garden, but rather a recollection that those areas that few know about hold greater secrets and are thus more intriguing.
Eventually you realise that I shall be saying that those parts of the HoBB Gardens left unattended are there for this very reason!
Off to neglect another niche ! ~~~~ waves from the Hills ~~ <+))))))))>< ~~~ Grant
