Bench series #28

For the month of July I’m looking for a bench with ‘Unusual Details’ 

(This month I want to see photos of a bench which is different to the norm. It may be the shape, style, length, height, colour, material or even location that attracts your attention)

This unusual bench is found in Abbotsbury Sub-tropical Garden in Dorset. Carved from a fallen oak tree the seating part is probably the least interesting. Just look at those hounds chasing the fox! (click on an image to enlarge and scroll through the gallery)

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

  • Create your own post and title it Bench Series: July
  • Include a link to this page in your post so others can find it too
  • Add the tag ‘bench series’ so everyone can find the benches easily in the WP Reader
  • Get your post in by the end of the month, as the new bench theme comes out on the first Sunday in August.

My Picks of the Week:

Pauline got in early with her wonderful surfboard seats. Join her for a winter stroll along the Gold Coast. You’ll be filled with envy!
Another stroll with a lovely bench at the end from VioletSky so if you get tired you can have a rest. And Jo throws in a very industrial looking bench that she found on her walk. Debbie is back with a delicately engraved bench on the Fens and another engraved bench is provided by Anabel, this time with a lovely inscription. Julia has a techno bench and Isobel was drawn into the challenge when she found a poignant bench in Winchester.

There is a toss-up for the most unusual though, between another one from Pauline and one from Tgeriatrix. What do you think?

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.
