Note:  Eowyn's garden has a real life counterpart.


The area of marshland was there before the sloping garden; a pond, tall reeds and dragonflies. Eowyn wanted her garden to open on to the wild. She was uncomfortable with confined spaces: enclosed gardens, small rooms, shoes... And she wanted the dragonflies.

She passed away together with them late one summer; left just a husk, and a void in his bed and in his bones.
But by the reed pond he did not feel it, as if fragments of her remained and filled the holes.
Time kept her there for him; diffused and reflected in leaves, water and dragonfly wings.
