Bench Series : July, unusual detail…

This is a teeny, tiny bench only 10 inches or 25 centimetres to the seat. Jack bought it for the grand children when they were toddlers. They are now teenagers. They loved to sit on it and trace their fingers around the animal motifs.

Now it sits among the plants, guarded by the fearsome dragon Jack made, gently rusting and storing memories of times gone by and waiting for the next generation of tiny bottoms to sit on it…

This weeks bench for Jude’s bench series lives in our garden.

If you would like to join in with the Bench photo challenge then please take a look at Jude’s Bench Series page. No complicated rules, just a bench and a camera required 🙂

  1. I love the idea of another “generation of tiny bottoms”!

    • So do wee but as the oldest grandson is 15 hopefully it will not be for a while yet. And my offspring are over in NZ.

  2. Oh please, please can I sit beside the giraffe? 🙂

    • You are welcome to come any time Gilly and I will make you a cuppa and even bake a celebratory cake if you can make it here…

  3. What a cute little bench, and the dragon looks very benign….

  4. such a pretty bench

  5. How interesting. African animals on a bench in Australia. I wonder what its history is? Maybe it was brought over by someone who lived in Africa and emigrated. I love the idea of it waiting for the ‘next generation of tiny bottoms’ – how sweet! My little Lorenzo would love this bench! And every time I see a photo of your garden I fall in love with it again 🙂 (And Jack’s dragon is awesome 😀 )

    • We got that bench from the all powerful Bunnings many years ago. The garden is looking very good at the moment. We haven’t been home at this time of the year for 5 years, and I’d forgotten how lush the garden is during winter and now all the spring natives are starting to bud up so will see them all flower before we take off again.

  6. lovely bench with such wonderful history 🙂

  7. If I could fit comfortably on this bench, I would also be tracing those animals with my fingers.

I would love to get to know you, please leave a comment
