Bench series #44

For the month of November I’m looking for a bench with either a message OR an Autumnal theme

(any kind of writing will do, it could be a message, a plaque, a dedication or even a map)

I’ll start off with a message.

I love the ones on benches in the USA often showing a great sense of humour – this one is at Santa Cruz, California. I saw one with “June’s bench of Hugs” but sadly didn’t take a photograph. Now I want to know what kind of guy Brett Gardner was. Casual I guess 🙂

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: November
  • 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 December.

My Picks of the Week:

The last of the occupied benches came in throughout the week, most with real people rather than sculptures.  Violetsky has some unusual mums on benches, more mums from Elaine, whilst Sue goes for a male on a bench and Sylvia has grand-kidlets amongst others! Ruth finds some yarn bombing, but the scariest occupied bench has to be this one. What do you think?

As always there are so many delightful benches to view, I hope you will check out the other links within the comment section. And thank you all for your overwhelming response in October – it seems that a lot of you like to photograph benches that are occupied.

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. What an interesting comment on this bench Jude. I’ve been missing in action for a while now and the weeks slip by. I will be back home next week and I have been finding a few benches on my stay in NZ. Jack helps me constantly saying ” there’s another one for Jude…”

    1. Thanks Trev. I have been over to view your benches and they are great. I cannot comment on your site though as I don’t have FB or Twitter or Google accounts. Is there any way you can allow people to comment by using their URL ? I am sure bloggers have been to your site, but cannot leave a comment like me. Good luck with the blogging 🙂
