Tales of a British expat, transplanted into the lush Tennessee countryside. Lover of old, time-worn, and antique. Tea-drinker, flower-grower, animal-nurturer.
Such an intriguing picture. I love moss, but I don't think I'd want to sit on this particular bench for fear of hurting the moss.Blessings~
Beautiful .. and the lichen on the bench, painting it green .. I love that .
I recognized that poem at the first line. I have always loved Emily Dickinson. Thank you for the reminder. :-)
Lovely pairing of picture and words!
That's an old bench!
I'm so glad that we are keeping things that show their age with lichen, moss, and patina. I know styles come and go and "shiny and new" will come back around but allowing things to show their age and keep them is the best. I like to think that people have sat on that bench to rest, visit with friends or just daydream. Or maybe it's just been there to add interest to a garden. Whatever the reason, I'm glad it is still there.
