Bench Series : 1 Garden Benches

These are the benches in our garden that I would like to add to the new “Benches Series” that Jude of “Travel Words” has started.
For the first series Jude has asked us to show her benches in gardens.

It has been raining most of this week with overcast skies, not ideal photography weather, so I am reblogging this post to show you the benches in our garden.

Memories are made of this

What an interesting theme Ailsa and every one seems to be in love with benches. Go to Ailsa’s blog “Where’s my backpack” to see hundreds of benches.

Jack and I have created our garden over the past 15 years and Jack loves putting seats every where for people to sit and relax and enjoy our garden. It is only an average suburban section but it winds and wanders around the house and today I counted the seats and was surprised to find we have 7 benches and a couple of old chairs. So here they are, enjoy your slow look around and take plenty of time to “sit and let the joy of life catch up with you”

  5. Your garden is beautiful! I loved seeing all your benches. What a lovely place to spend time.


  6. Your garden is so lovely! I want to rest on that bench and talk with Jack’s little friends~


  7. It must be tempting to just rotate around the garden from bench to bench all day with a good book and a cup of coffee, tea, or wine, as the day progresses.

    I love the idea of a seat straight of the door into the sun Pauline ! I have to wait for the sun to come round Lol .


  9. Benches are one of my loves too – love to see them and imagine all the b…that have sat on them lol
    Will have to pop overvand look at the others.


  10. Your garden looks really welcoming with all those benches, Pauline. 🙂 The first comment I saw there was from Christine. I do miss her.


  11. Lovely 🙂 I love garden benches. They give gardens a welcoming sense don’t they? I’ve got quite a few in my garden too. One of which was retrieved from a neighbour’s curbside and restored into a beautiful bench.
