For June who loved this garden
From Joseph who always sat beside her... June Wetherby 1917 - 1992
From one beautiful garden to another.. I hope June would have loved the view here in Queens Gardens as much as she did the view in one of the private gardens in Notting Hill, possibly Hempel or Elgin Square Garden.. quite the love story. Check out the scene here from the 1999 romantic comedy Notting Hill at about 2.20 minutes in you'll see this very bench that Hugh Grant and Julie Roberts sat their derrieres on.. big deal I know, but it's the rest of the story that caught my attention..
The bench, now sitting sweet in Queens Gardens was acquired as a birthday present for a loved one here in Perth and inscribed 'Rodd & Nicole 2002' sadly the affair wasn't to be and the bench was donated to the gardens where Rodd is very happy that it has become a special place for others to enjoy.. altogether awww :)
