A New Place to Sit in the Garden

When we were tearing down the old barn, the hand hewn wood pillars looked to be intact. Once they were turned over, time, termites and wood rot had eroded the underside that touched the ground.

I took the two that were in best shape and made little benches by setting them atop stones.

In the spring, I'll move them to more appropriate sites among plants and shrubbery. Right now I'm just admiring the ancient pieces of wood.
