Seating From Around the World

 

1pt.gif (86 bytes)I have discovered something while visiting gardens ... that each garden will usually have more than one unusual bench, chair or place to sit and enjoy the garden - now it took me a few gardens before I realized this, but now, I have decided to watch for them as I visit and take a picture of them. I could have had the same fascination for urns, or obelisks, or gargoyles, but I picked seating. I have lots of pictures showing these others in the various gardens, but for now - seating is my new hobby! Hope you enjoy!
