Bench series #30

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)

Upturned ‘boat’ benches are so fascinating and so practical as the boat provides shelter from the sun or rain – these are two that I have found in different parts of the country. Have you seen a ‘boat’ bench? If so perhaps you’d like to share it with me.

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.

This is the last week for unusual benches so please get your entries in soon!

My Picks of the Week:

Violetsky has these happy feet and snuggly hands to show us.
Debbbie finds a map in the countryside around St Albans.
Pauline (or PP as I often call her) has two lovely benches this month – one with the lovely Jack attached and another for ‘tiny bottoms‘. Thank you Pauline xx
Dailymusings has a wonderful butterfly bench and darling Gilly is riding with cherubs 

As always there are so many delightful benches to view, I hope you will check out the other links within the comment section.

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.

  1. A really great selection this week Jude. I like your boat benches, and the map bench is both informative, and useful.
    Regards as always, Pete. x

    1. Thanks Pete! Rain again here! And it is the Horse Parade – I might nip out for a quick look, but not with the new camera 😉

  2. So unique and clever. I doubt I’ll see a boat bench here in the plains, foothills or Rocky Mountains! But I never say never 😀

  3. I have seen one somewhere, wish I could remember but the grey cells are overloaded! So this is the last for July? when do I post for August my lovely?
