Are You Sitting Comfortably – no 23 in an occasional series

Here we are back with a collection of photos of garden seats that inspire me to record them and share them. Enjoy!

The first batch are from the National Trust garden at Biddulph Grange.

So I don’t know when my next post in this series will appear – it will simply when I have found enough garden seats to create a little gallery.

A retired primary school head teacher, I now spend much of my time gardening in our quarter acre plot in rural Shropshire south of Shrewsbury. I share my garden with Jude my wife a newly retired teacher , eight assorted chickens and a plethora of wildlife. Jude does all the heavy work as I have a damaged spine and right leg. We also garden on an allotment nearby. We are interested in all things related to gardens, green issues and wildlife.

I’ve long researched the ‘growing herb garden seat’ for how to do here, in my growing zone – so many stories from the ‘olden times’ talk about the growing garden seats – how one would sit on them and the ‘crush’ of the herbs would scent the air around them – – sigh – so while I love the places to sit and enjoy the garden, I hope in your travels you come across examples of growing seats – I’d love to see examples of them, to figure out how to build/structure, to do here, for my zone – cactus grow well here, even in drought years – but they aren’t too comfortable to sit on – and clover and thyme are low growing and lovely, and bear traffic, but for sitting? nope – one might sit on a bee, since they ave so few awesome spots to feed upon – 🙂 Sigh – my quest and one I hope I can complete, before this life is over – thanks for all the ramblings and pictures you post – they are such an inspiration to me about what I want in my ‘local garden’ – 🙂
