The garden seat


This old seat has been hidden under the bushes and retired from active duty.



No longer a functional (or safe) place to sit, but now a piece of garden art.


Nature is taking over and using it as a growing surface which makes me want to keep it a bit longer - or maybe until it completely falls apart.

  1. I say keep it Jocee, the weathering of it is adding character. I also found one when we moved. It was hidden under overgrowth and now takes pride of place under my bottlebrush tree in the front garden. Like yours it is only for show.

  7. I think you should keep this old bench. It is a nice home for those plant creatures to live. Nice angles to your shots. Thanks for linking up!

  10. I could be useable with a little tender care. I would try to preserve it.

  12. ,..,isn't it amazing how the lichen attach like that. Hope it will stay on and not dry off in the summer. You might have to water your bench :) You know I believe plain yoghurt on wet concrete surfaces is a good surface for mosses and lichens.....I wonder if some were painted on the wet spots of your bench? :)

  17. I love the old look of your garden seat! It takes years to get that look!!!
    It looks very comfortable nestled in amongst the trees.
    Retired is such a lovely way of describing one of your faithful garden friends Jocee!
    I'm keeping my eye out for one for my garden.
