    I would choose the the little "Toy Theatre" in the basement at House of Dun. I would love to have had one like it when I was a little girl.

    I keep coming back to ‘Foam’. This is a statue created for the Empire exhibition of 1938 at Bellahouston Park in Glasgow. She stood there for the whole exhibition and inspired the visitor, the widow of her sculptor Charles de Orville Pilkington Jackson made a gift of her to the NTS in 1976 when she came to Greenbank Garden. During her time here she has become the iconic figure of the garden but during the Glasgow Garden Festival in 1988 she stood in the NTS garden that season to be much admired by all who visited the show. In the garden we hold no plant to be irreplaceable but as time has gone by ‘Foam’ has become the one irreplaceable thing here as the garden now would not be Greenbank without her.
