Bench series #14

For the month of April I’m looking for benches with a view

Lake Burley Griffin – Canberra, ACT, Australia

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: April
  • 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 May.

My Picks of the Week:

Not only a wooden bench, but one with a view from Meg in Australia. I’m heading there now with my picnic basket. And she couldn’t resist another one.
Daily Musings captures her husband on a bench. Several times.
A beautiful spring view in Edinburgh from Debbie
Gilly takes us to a tranquil spot in Exeter.
Those of you who like owls, pop over to Elaine’s post
and if you have never seen a Kiwi then Julia has a treat for you, and a bench of course.

And for anyone who is interested this is my 400th post on this blog!

I now live back in the UK, but spent several years travelling the world and then living in South Africa. I look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

      1. I have sat on it many times, and it is popular with tourists for photo-ops too.
        Sorry about the category, but I have been hanging on to the link, and would no doubt have forgotten it otherwise…x

        1. Glad to have seen it – I think – but then Oscar Wilde was quite a character in life so why should his tribute be any different? 😀

    1. Hope you feel better soon. Head colds are the most energy sapping things. I’m looking forward to some delightful views this month too – shall pop over to Istanbul in a moment 🙂

    1. Yes, I liked the shadows. Late evening, always a good time for long strong shadows (well, when it is sunny of course) – thanks for liking it Sue 🙂

        1. Mmm… it was about 12 years since my previous visit and I don’t think much has changed. Nice lake though and great museums.

Likes are nice, but comments start a conversation...
