English Learner's Question: seat?

Could you please tell me what "seat" mean in the following passage?

After she had gone I went to the window and stood looking out on the velvet lawn below, with the fine old cedar, ringed by a circular seat of faded blue....

Does this simply mean the old tree is ringed by some flowers of faded blue color? I appreciate any comments. Thank you!

    Some people build a wooden seat around large, old trees. It's designed for people to sit and look out at the landscape. This is a wooden bench that goes around the tree.
