sitters unite


A bright new round of ABC Wednesday has begun and is graced by a new logo. Today the letter B is star. From a local park near my home in Minnesota I bring you the lowly bench. Benches usually reside out-of-doors yet never complain about weather, graffiti artists, heavy weights or being lovingly etched. Some are tucked away so far into the woods that they never become quite as sun bleached as others. [Fellow blogger Rune has been so taken by benches in his Norway that he is posting a new photo each Friday or thereabouts. Fellow bench-lovers visit him here.] Benches have history and some have great stories to tell. But I'm anthropomorphising digressing.

Visit Mrs Nesbitt the friendly host of ABC Wednesday here.

Thank you for the plug! This was pleasant indeed - a B that I (and many others) will enjoy. This bench certainly looks like it has a story to tell. It seems to be roughly made, yet placed in a position where it might be nice to sit and enjoy life. Thank you for sharing!

Oh these are neat, I love benches .. there is nothing 'lowly' about them, except maybe their height!

That nice shady bench would certainly be welcome as a stopping spot after the first leg of a long walk, and a relief to weary legs (the human kind). I love benches. These are delughtful phitis.

Perfect B! A bench in a peaceful spot, just waiting to be used ... just lovely.

On behalf of the team, thanks for taking part in this week's ABC Wednesday!

I love the look of these bench photos. I noticed that RuneE was posting benches on Fri, and I think I will look for some.

Lovely photos! I have been looking for just the perfect bench to put in the garden; I realized one day that that was what the garden was missing:)

I like benches too - great idea for an entire blog even!
