Bench Series : August, coloured benches.

This month Jude wants to see photos of a bench that is painted or stained or otherwise coloured in some way. Not the plain wooden variety unless there is some colour detail.

Today is the last day of winter down under and spring is on the horizon.

  1. What a magnificently composed and colour-coordinated shot. I’m a bit bemused by the arrival of spring. Haven’t I already had spring this year???

  2. Love the vibrant pop of colour here, Pauline – or should I say burst of colour! It’s grey, dank and dismal here this morning, in true English August Bank Holiday Monday style, so your post is most welcome πŸ™‚

  3. Happy spring x:-)x

  4. Lovely composition PP. Is this red bench in your garden? Oh, how I wish we were entering spring – it seems to be the only time of year when we get good weather! I do like autumn, but summer seems to have missed us this year… sigh!

  5. What beautiful colours! Happy Springtime πŸ˜€

  6. Dang (sorry for the american slang), but this is beautiful Pauline.
    So as spring arises in Ozyland, one (read me) considers, seasons, weather patterns, and general chaos.
    It seems southern california is due for an epic el nino (meaning lots of rain). Taking the land that rain forgot, and drenching us in unabsorbable percipitation.
    We may not get rain despite the fact that el nino is already the most pronounced it has been in recent history, because warming northern currents may negate the effect, of the clash between warm and cold.
    I read, regardless, of el ninos effect on southern california, and my holler home, it will bring drought to parts of Austalia and South Africa.
    Since these are place I love, with people l care about, I believe we really are all connected.
    I hope I stay connected with you.

    • G’day Cindy, thanks for the interesting comment. In 2010 we had the el nino over here and that year the 10 year drought broke with disastrous effects in Queensland, so hope you stay safe. I guess some rain would be appreciated ( I think you have been in drought?) Our forecasters can’t seem to make up their collective minds as to what we will get. Some say drought with maybe floods!!! Hedging their bets!!! Whatever we get we will just have to deal with it. It has been a moderate year so far, just enough rain and nice warm temps, the garden is loving it.
      Stay safe in your Holler my friend.

  8. Gosh, what stunning colours – the pictures on your blog are absolutely stunning: I’ve got so much to learn about photography, but don’t think I’ll ever be able to take shots as alive as yours!

    • Thank you Emma that is such a lovely and encouraging comment. I’ve just popped over to your blog and you have some great content there. I will be back for more.

  9. Wonderful how the flowers fit to the bench! I wonder if this was done on purpose…

  10. Gorgeous! πŸ™‚ Hope all’s well in your world, Pauline.

    • It certainly is Jo. We are going house sitting on Monday. Hope all is well for you. Looking forward to hearing all your adventures.
