A bench in the shade overlooking a stream. Perfect place to plonk down for a while with a good book.

That looks like a very peaceful place to sit and meditate. And to take a little nap if one brings a pillow. :-)
Happy MidWeek Blues!

It looks idyllic, though I don't think I could sit for long, i'd want to explore.

Such an inviting spot. Even though it is cold outside my window I can appreciate the thought of sitting there in the shade on a hot day by the water. How lovely.

Thanks for posting Midweek Blues. I look forward to looking through your blog.

Looks like a lovely spot! I tend to photograph benches when I see them but seldom publish the photos ... perhaps I'll make a collage one day? I do enjoy Midweek Blues and appreciate you stopping by mine at Small Reflections this week.
Hugs and blessings,

I can see myself sitting on that bench enjoying the view! The colour of the bench blends in nicely with the environment.

That for cluing me in that the snow effect was slowing things down...I removed it.

Benches are such wonderful subjects for photos. Like windows and doors, they are so filled with stories.
