Turkish Gardens

The gardeners brought a float, which consisted of a small rectangular garden on a wheeled cart. The "garden" is interesting because it is a good model of an idealized Ottoman garden at the time. On each corner there is a single cypress tree rising proudly, its top slightly bent. The ground was planted with grass and laid out with paths. In the very center was a pool with spouts. (TSM H 1344, 349a.)
