Silence


The old wooden garden bench, half-crumbling away, sits silently
with only a blanket of lichen as it's companion.

Jo, I have one like it too. Can't sit on it anymore, but I hate to replace the wood.

The restorer in me wants to fix it. The romantic in me wants to leave it exactly as it is.

I love lichen too! All that variation and shades of color. You captured it beautifully! The bench is a work of art.

beautiful the lichen on the old bench, leave it and it will turn to dust. The October party poem in your former post is so true with the autumn colours. I like it very much!

...and you've still kept it? My goodness, I've never seen a bench as old and crumbly as that. It looks great in your photo though even in its present state!
