This is the second and “very long time coming” post in my series about garden seating in all its guises. Please just enjoy the photos and let your imagination get to work wondering what it would be like sitting on each and every seat. At the RHS Tatton Park Flower Show we found a good assortment.
A chair can be somewhere to watch the rain watering the grass or somewhere to seek outat the end of a mosaic pathway.
Jude the Undergardener prefers them to relax on and if possible have a cup of tea and a good chat with friends.
Some seats simply look too elegant to be sat upon and prefer to be admired.
Many garden seats are under arches or inside domes of trees. This one is on our allotments in our new “Garden of Contemplation” and the arch over it is created from old iron hurdles.
Gardeners like to train trees over seats sometimes to give natural shade to the resting
Wood is probably the commonest material we build our garden seating out of, sometimes these are good to look at but less comfortable to sit upon, others look good and are comfortable too.
This carved stone seat is definitely better to look at than to sit on.
Many gardens are keen recyclers too so their seats tend to blend happily into their natural surroundings.
For the final garden seat in this second selection we shall stay with the theme of recycling. How about a sunken garden where you can sit down and feel the coolness of the earth. You can see how much the creator enjoyed making this unusual piece of garden furniture.
So there we have it, my second set of photos of garden seats, some cheap some expensive, some expensive and some home made and recycled. I shall be off now to find more seats to sit on in the gardens we visit, in readiness for the next garden seats post.You can never tell with this series you may have to wait months again or it may just be next week – who can tell?
