I knew I had a lot of seats in this small garden, but 19? I never thought to actually count them till now as I carry out an honest survey of my outdoor space.
Sitting thinking and looking is my favourite occupation, but even so..
The above is built in to the porch. Also in need of attention. We liked to sit on the porch in early evening and on hot days had dinner there. This little folding chair is maybe the only piece that does not need any attention! I began to paint it yellow and decided I liked some of the blue showing through. That 'shabby-chic' look? Too bad the rest look plain shabby without the chic. Hmm..
If I count my all-time favourite - the hammock - that makes 20! Ridiculous. Except that they all have their purpose.
I am so glad to have photographs to look back on. I'm encouraged to see that I did manage the garden last year and it had its lovely moments, and will do again no doubt (if I do less sitting and more moving - good for the garden and good for me).
Is this the time of year you also take a long hard look at things? Home, wardrobe, garden whatever?,
