Bench at Pandapas Pond

A bench at Pandapas Pond. One of my favorite spots to
sit and take in the wildlife.
I saw a Hawk there today and this is where
I saw my first Pileated Woodpecker. A very speical place.

Children's best pastime bench . . .

I know this isn't a people bench but a metal sculpture but I fell in love with it when I spotted it and there is a bench . . . even if it is completely occupied with statues reading!

Rattan porch bench

Saw this in the neighborhood where I go to take photos of the Kiggins House remodel. Even tho the porch looks old, it has a nice kept bench and beautiful surrounding flowers. Did you notice the little bells hanging from the welcome sign on the house?

Interesting but neglected bench

Saw this bench on one of my walks about town. Looks like no one has had the pleasure of sitting here for awhile. It has an interesting back and frame and I am glad I spotted it on one of my walking adventures.

Upholstered bench for one. . .

I fell in love with this bench when I spotted it. The shape of it, the wood grain and the beautiful upholstered seat caught my eye right away. The "bent" arms are beautifully crafted. I don't know if the wood was shaped to curve or if it was somehow "bent" when wet and dried in that shape. Whatever, skill or craft, it makes for a beautiful chair bench for one!

Neglected Home made bench

I bet it was a neat bench in its day. I think it could be fixed and still be usable. I like how the little arms and legs were made from small logs.

Rocker high bench

I didn't know what to call this one. It is definitely unique, made of thrown away metal parts. Notice the ornate sides made of artistic metal pieces, the step leading to the portion you sit on and the rocker bottom bar. Almost reminds me of a sled! These recycle inventions are truly inventive!

Snowboard ski bench

Decorative arbor bench

I liked the plain simple wooden bench even before they added the metal arbor and attached all the other "goodies" to the back and sides of the arbor bench. To see the details better , CLICK on photo.

Bench at Woodpecker Ridge Nature Center

On the 4th of July, hubby and I visited Woodpecker Ridge
Nature Center. This was the bench that welcomed us
to the gardens. A lovely place.

Dotted bench

This bench is also from the recycle fair. This lady paints dots on everything!!!!!!!!!! The bench is kinda like the two blue ones I had in my Kindergarten class but maybe a bit bigger in size. The seat opens to store things.
