This week, in her Fun Foto Challenge, Cee asks us to show outdoor seating. My choice was easy. This bench sat outside our back door for several years after it replaced another. David especially liked to sit out there on fine days. He would often take his lunch, coffee or a book outside and sit in the sun. Sadly it wasn’t big enough for both of us to sit on it together.
Cindy learned to jump up on to it so that I could groom her without straining my back bending.
Last spring I moved the bench to the bottom of the garden near the apple tree and now it is my favourite place to sit in the garden. I can enjoy the rustle of the leaves, the twittering of small birds hiding in the tree and the sound of the windchimes I hung on a branch. I too, like to take my coffee or lunch there or occasionally a book. I still get Cindy to jump on it so that I can groom her.
The bench is guarded by my cat and kitten statues who have been with me for nearly 20 years.
