ILLUSION OF REPOSE

Chairs & benches are favorite focal points. Why?
They give the illusion of repose.
.
Weeks & months may pass without time to sit in my garden. Doesn't matter.
.
Potency lies in the illusion, throughout my days, seeing from the windows, views prettier than any Hallmark greeting card.
.
Seriously. How can Hallmark compete with a deep red cardinal landing on the top of a chair & singing to his mate? A squirrel bringing lunch to the arm of a bench in the potagere?
.
Comfort must not be illusion. Sit test each chair/bench.
.
I don't care if it's rescued or only $19.95. If it's not comfortable & fabulous, don't take it home. Remember my estate sale question, "Will this be fought over at my estate sale?"
.
Garden & Be Well, XO Tara
