Never knew that benches could be so beautiful. Your photo does it justice indeed.

Greetings from London.

Teresa said...

I wish I were sitting on that bench right now!!!

RuneE said...

I very much feel that this could be a place I would love to visit, sit down and just relax.

Very fitting.

Kia ora Barbara,
I reckon I could sit there all day. It would be so cool to sit there with a good absorbing book, and from time to time just set it down and relish that view.
Aroha,
Robb

That tree is so beautiful. Would be nice to have a cup of tea and sitting on that bench under that beautiful tree staring into the calm water. Sigh. I feel more peaceful already. D

Barbara Martin said...

Merisi, this is a nice spring photo with the leaves just coming forth on the willow.

Raph, I can imagine sitting on the bench and soon after, the water fowl would come visiting.

Cuban, the location is always important. There are magnificent benches in London: some outside the National Gallery across from Trafalgar Square.

Barbara Martin said...

Teresa, I just bet there are some interesting benches in California.

RuneE, this bench is perfectly located.

Tony, I'm pleased to have brought you fond memories.

Barbara Martin said...

Robb, Vancouver is filled with such places.

Donnetta, I find nice photos relax me too, which is why I post them for others to enjoy.

I could spend some time on that bench. :)

Diane C. said...

Beautiful, peaceful, inspiring bench image. Lovely post, really made me stop and think, thank you.

Barbara Martin said...

Bernard, when you see a bench sit yourself down to enjoy the vibrations of life around the area.

Diane, welcome. Time for relaxation seems to escape most of us during a busy day. It takes only a few minutes to replenish your energy to stop, sit and enjoy the scenery.

Without the bench, that scene wouldn't be as beautiful BUT the way you have framed the bench with the willow tree hanging gently over it, looking towards that beautiful lake and the snow on the mountains beyond is exceptional and a memory that will not fade fast.

Came here from Rune's blog about a bench . . . have now bookmarked it and plan to return when I ahve more time. Just looked at and read about your two benches today. . .

That bench has many stories to tell.

Steve Malley said...

What a neat idea! Sadly, the current machine won't allow me to participate, but I'm still happy to be able to visit my favorite blogs again!

Leigh Russell said...

That would definitely be my bench of the week, Barbara. How lovely.

Cloudia said...

What a joy to rest in your photo for a while!
Aloha

Pamela Terry and Edward said...

All I would need is a good book and an apple.
And Edward.

Barbara Martin said...

Perbs, welcome and thanks for stopping by. RuneE has started this fun theme by accident.

Patti, it probably does.

Steve, well, you can come here anytime to rest your weary travel worn eyes.

Barbara Martin said...

Leigh, thank you, but the benches in the weeks to come may take your fancy as well.

Cloudia, thanks.

Pamela, I can see Edward chasing the ducks.
