Now that I have a huge blank slate for a garden, I’m spending a lot of time dreaming about what I want to do. It’s really not that different than what I did back in Ohio, just on a larger scale. One thing I’ve always dreamed about having in the garden is a nice bench.
I don’t know exactly why this type of bench calls to me, but every time I see one at a botanical garden or in a park, I tell myself I’ll have one in my garden someday.
This particular bench was nestled in a peaceful alcove by the pond at Bloedel Reserve, the perfect spot to sit. I could definitely see myself spending hours on this bench reading.
I think all gardens should have a place to sit, though oddly enough I’ve never really had an official one in mine. Back in Ohio, we always sat on the stairs of our front porch or on the stairs in the back. Someday I will have a garden bench, I just have to start saving my pennies because a good quality one isn’t cheap!
