Framing views

Focusing attention…
Gustave: A view can look better framed.
George: I see what you mean. Looking through the magnolia at the sea.
Gustave: Shaded too. And over here, across the lawn.
George: Aha, a perch for birds to check for cats before drinking.

The art of gardening draws on the art of framing. Repoussoir in the sea view and foliage-vignetting in the birdbath scene.
