Bench series #39

For the month of September I’m looking for a Metal bench

Quatrefoil bench in Autumn

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: September
  • 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 October.

This is the last week for your metal benches, next Sunday we start looking for ones with someone or something on it.

My Picks of the Week:

Kaz, another lady who lives in Sydney, took a photo of this bench some time ago, but it is metal and it is a beautiful shot so I am including it in my pick this week. Tish invites you to join her in a circular argument. Debbie is feeling chilly in Margate. Klara is back with a contemporary bench and Lori has another sculptural bench whilst Violetsky brings us something a little more normal from Scotland this time and Elaine heads back to New Orleans.

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

This post is my 500th on this blog which is really weird because I have reached the 500th post on my flower blog too. I obviously take too many photographs! I would like to thank all my followers and readers for their likes and comments and all the wonderful conversations that occur on here. Who knew that blogging could be so much fun. Thank you all 🙂

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. It was taken in a NT garden close to us – Croft Castle, Herefordshire. A lovely place for autumn colour, this was a couple of years ago in November.

    1. Never mind Sylvia, next Sunday is the beginning of a new theme so maybe you can find some that fit that one? I appreciate your visits, regardless of whether you come empty handed (or benchless) 😉

  1. Congratulations to 2x 500! 👍👍
    Stay a happy blogger and have fun, Jude.

    1. I agree. A cushion on these benches is an essential. Don’t think I have ever seen one here though. Perhaps they don’t want people to sit for too long 🙂

    1. Well I don’t know about that – but it is good to compare some of the older posts with the newer ones, especially the photographs. Thank you 🙂

  2. Congratulations on your 1,000 posts! I’ve been at mine for over 7 years and have around 1,000 on each. Some years I was a bit more prolific than others. Meeting you and Jo has helped get me back into posting.
    Anyway, I absolutely adore your bench this week. It would look very complementary in some church yards, I think. Like an outdoor pew!
    I have another ‘normal’ bench for you this week. 🙂
    You can find it here:

    1. Thank you. Blogging is a lovely way to meet people and see new things. I started mine simply to record my travels and somewhere to put my photos, I never dreamed that it would become such a part of my life.
