A New Bench for the Garden

Tara always advises having a double axis.
The new bench is visible out the window.
From the bench, the camellias are seen.

The bench curves around the tree.
Pieces of a pole serve as garden tables.

 Drops of water on the bench after a rain. It sits under  a forty-five year old Juniperus virginiana.

The view to the northwest takes in a young camellia, a dogwood tree and various other treats.
The bench is partly obscured by ancient boxwoods and wisteria.

Flowers and text are from the garden of Nell Jean blogged on Dotty Plants Journal in hot, humid Southwest Georgia.

Lovely bench, Nell Jean, and you have it sited so well. I like having the poles for tables nearby too, that way you have a place to set a beverage or a book. Wonderful views, I'd love to sit there and take it all in.
