A bench for all seasons

Trainspotting, anyone?

There's one!

Such a blue sky! Yes, it is England.

Blue skies! It’s an English Summer.

Delving deep into my archives, I’ve concluded that I don’t take many photos of benches.

But I do like to get out into the countryside

Coastal footpaths are great places for a bench or two.

Especially if you have to climb up there

Ahhh, that's better!

In Giverny, at the Monet Garden, I tried to capture a very cute butterfly and her sister.

Got the bench, but not the butterfly!

Got the bench, but the butterfly nearly got away!

It was such a lovely place! Spot the bench?

It was such a lovely place, with just an occasional free bench

Wasn't it Patrick's Day this week?

It’s not every day you find a bench for St Patrick’s!

Spring has been quite unpredictable too this year.  Walking has brought a few surprises.

No sitting on this one!

Or this!

Or this!

I can’t wait for those sunny days to get here so I can begin hunting for benches in earnest.  Have you joined Jude’s Bench Challenge yet?  Come with me!  You don’t want to miss it.

  1. Wonderful variety of exceptional benches. Painting a bench blue can surely help find it. I’m always on the lookout for one so I can rest my sore knees from walking. Very nice entry for the challenge. : )

  2. Love the light blue color of that train station. It’s like you’re stopping at a candy store or a fairytale house after riding the train. Ahihihi 😀

    That fourth shot is epic.
