In the story... The garden has been Diana's childhood playground. She enters it whenever she likes, climbing the stone wall from
the woods at the back. One Sunday morning when the garden is closed to the public and the gardeners have the day off, she goes
for a swim in the remote Grotto Pond. The Duke's great-nephew,
, is out for a walk and sees her there. He
approaches her innocently but she is humiliated. Diana begs him to leave and he does, but he is still intrigued with her.
