Sit and Stay Awhile ...

The Tower Hill Gardeners have been volunteering in the Garden since 2012; planting, weeding, pruning, deadheading and raising money for special projects.  Early on, it became obvious that there weren't enough places to sit down and relax in the Garden other than on the grass or stone walls.

Last year we had the opportunity to do something about that.  First, we acquired and assembled eight Muskoka chairs to scatter around the Garden.

With the support of the Town, we also ordered four memorial benches that arrived during the winter and have been installed around the pond.  These benches have been dedicated through generous donations in memory of people who have had a significant connection to the Tower Hill Heritage Garden or Horticulture in the area.

The benches are quite comfortable and offer different views around and overlooking the pond.

And the chairs are scattered about in pairs.  Four are looking out over the harbour ...

And the others are in the Habitat Garden ...

and close to the base of the Tower.

These are a great addition to the picnic tables that were already there and so now you can bring a book and choose a place either in the sun or shade and stay awhile.  The Muskoka Chairs are comfy enough that you might even doze off while listening to the sounds of the Garden.
