Bench Series : January Garden Benches #2

Jude’s new bench series is very popular and has benches to sit on all around the world. Go to Jude’s post to see them.

Here is my number 2 entry, a peaceful, serene seat among the peace lilies in the Townsville Palmetum Gardens. To revisit those gardens click here

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”
