Garden Swing

I don’t know about you, but when I was young and would go to the park, the best part was always the swings – and even more exciting were the basket swings… to this day I will still spend hours swinging back and forth in my own garden swing!

Picture this: glass of wine in one hand, a book in the other, sitting on a beautiful swing seat in your garden gently rocking in the breeze… Trust us. You want this.
