Taking a load off

Weary feet and weed-stained hands

Learning how to rest

    Oh Mel, I love this bench about as much as I love the sundials–by the way, where are they this season?? And I like the poem too!

    Is there room for me there too?

  3. Gallivanta says:

    Oh yes, Amen to that.

  4. I don’t have much time for gardening but I find it so relaxing. I would also love a bench like that it just screams sit on me

    I have to keep learning how to rest. Thanks, Melody, for sharing your bench with us! 🙂

      Isn’t it something how we need to learn to rest? It’s actually a skill few of us learn to balance properly, I think. Today is read a book in the garden day – I am so looking forward to it! I read an article that said when designing a flower bed to make sure you put in a bench or all you’ll do is go out there to work – very good advice that I have taken pretty seriously – I have quite the collection of benches… 😉
