Garden Bench

Have been meaning to post a garden bench for Jude’s bench challenge…so here is one! Seen at Burrow Farm Garden, near Dalwood in Devon. ย I love that garden, have visited it a number of times over the last decade. This particular bench is usually free to sit on, but on this occasion the plants rather took over – definitely a garden bench!

  1. Oh, this is lovely and I can feel the warmth! I have just had to look up this garden. It is gorgeous! I wish I had known about it last year when I visited this region of the country. Definitely my kind of garden. And a tea-room too ๐Ÿ˜€
    BTW can you add the tag ‘bench series’ so the post shows up in the Reader easily. Thanks Sue ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Beautiful. I would like to have a rest there. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Sitting on that bench is really getting close to nature!
    Nice one Sue.

  4. So lovely and serene, Sue. Those hollyhocks do seem to have laid claim to the bench for now. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. This looks very inviting, Sue! ๐Ÿ™‚ I have made a mental note of visiting this garden, should I be in Devon.

  6. I would love to sit on that bench. Lovely shot.

  7. Yes that’s a lovely garden, I must go again this year, thanks for reminding me!

  8. A beautiful bench, but I am taken with the stacked stone wall around it. It is quite a peaceful setting.

  9. Nice choice. I like how overgrown the setting is, especially the flowers coming through the bench. Nature’s taking over!

    What a pretty spot to relax.

  11. A very nice spot to sit awhile! ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. I love the way the flowers have been left to sit on the bench with you.

  13. Oh I want to sit there!!! Beautiful Sue!!

  14. I love the way the plants have won, Sue ๐Ÿ™‚
    Viveka and Royal Albert Hall tomorrow? ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. So beautiful…looks so inviting I could sit there right now… ๐Ÿ˜‰
