The garden bench

There's a faded garden bench I rather like

which sits against an old brown fence.

Its weather-worn slats, once painted "Mission Green"

are now sun-bleached grey and interwoven with Jasmine tendrils

This faded garden bench which I am rather fond of

sits on a carpet of dried leaves next to the vegetable patch 

.... quietly surveying the scene
.... watching over the garden
.... fading daily 
as the Jasmine commands more and more attention!

  1. Oh Francesca how gorgeous, I have a great image of a park bench at New Farm Park that has been totally engulfed by a tree with only the wrought iron end and foot still showing. Gorgeous photos, xxx

    1. Thank you Lisa - the more neglected the better I say! See you soon. Fxx

  2. Francesca, How I love benches and the stories they tell. I found myself as attracted to them in Italy as I was to the doors, door knockers and window boxes. Kindred souls, we are!


I love reading your comments - so please feel free to add something. Thank you! F x
