And it looked like a seat to lots of people all week long. But these low walls are not intended to be benches, PHS tells me. Hmm. How come?
Seating has been a perennial problem at the flower show. I thought this an ingenius effort to fix some of that. There will never be enough seats, but a few more is a great idea. From day one, these walls leading to and placed around the Big Ben Plaza central feature have been popular parking spots for tired walkers.
But PHS says they were not designed to be resting places. Alas. There are no "No sitting" signs, like the ones I've seen at several exhibits. So the public has moved in.
No wonder I've heard a lot less complaining about seating this year.
