Pull Up A Seat At The Garden Centre

XingfuMama’s ‘Pull Up A Seat’ challenge showcases many places one can sit and rest one’s self either comfortably or sometimes not so comfortably, as is the case with this one I found at my sister’s local garden centre in South Africa.

Just around the corner, was this cute couple all snuggled up on a tiny bench in the shade.

Pull Up A Seat, Mrs. Edison

Four years ago we visited the Edison Heritage garden in Fort Myers. Thomas Edison’s second wife, Mina Miller had a great love for the tranquility of formal gardens and created many beautiful ones in the grounds of their extensive winter estate.

This sculpture shows her sitting on a bench, peacefully admiring the plants around her.

This couple are resting a while to admire the ocean scene from a well-placed bench in my home town of Umhlanga Rocks. I really miss that view, and hope to be back there for a visit very soon.

Pull Up A Seat Photo Challenge: Two ‘Throw-backs’.

I decided to take part in XingfuMama’s photo challenge this week. All you need to do is post photos of objects one can sit upon.

Here’s a ‘throw-back’ from 1998, snapped by our son Jeff. Hubby and I were resting on a bench in a rainy Central Park before leaving for the airport on our way back to South Africa. I really loved that flowery umbrella and wish I knew where it eventually disappeared to.

Another memory from 6 years ago when our granddaughter Sienna was visiting us with her dad in Johannesburg. In our local shopping mall we came upon this rather flashily-dressed cow reading the Daily Mooews.
