She likes her garden, Tom!
Tom Wilson: Indeed she does, Ray smile
unusual isn't she - I like how you took this!!
Tom Wilson: It ws rather unusual - Sir Harold was a noted art historian and critic and the house and garden were full of his acquisitions.
Quite nice and unusual Tom!
Tom Wilson: Not your usual garden ornament - bgetter than a clutch of gnomes!

Presumably he had personal connections with NY university Tom?
Tom Wilson: I'm not sure, Chris - he offered the villa to Oxford University and they turned it down (idiots!) on the grounds that they couldn't afford the upkeep!
How wonderfully serene, Tom.
Tom Wilson: It's a lovely spot in the hills above the city.

She is Flora, symbolising the summer.
Tom Wilson: You may be right, Philine - I'm not sure what she is clutching in her left hand!
I woman tired of housework. She is checking out the grapevine to see if the grapes are ready. She needs wine.
Tom Wilson: A nice story, Mary - fits the scene well! ;-)

I think she said something to you, just there smile Heck, Harry could have left me the mansion and stuff. At least I would have invited all Shutterchancers for a wine and what-not.
