Benches on Monday,

I’ve been collecting benches for about 10 years. And last week our temps were close to 70 degrees. A big difference from today’s weather (24 degrees)

Anyway, on my walks last week I found a few new benches on the. Erie Canal, in my Village . And yesterday I went back to the conservatory

I just got such an urge to smell a few flowers😊, every one here has the spring itch.

But it will b at least 2 more months b4 we see flowers outside.

Have a wonderful Monday

Happy Bench Monday

Omg trying to prepare for every day of 365 is still is bit of work for me 🙂 how ever… I am always prepared for my Bench day

Beach living… these people who live along the Great Lakes must have the thickest blood around , people are already pulling out their deck furniture and temps are 10 to 15 degrees below the norm. We have had plenty of sun but the temps remain in the 30’s.

Too cold for me to be sitting in the sand.. how ’bout you :)?! Happy Bench Monday

A Distant Memory

Anyone who knows me… knows I really despise the cold and snow, and I hibernate for a few months. The last stretch of our winter just seems to drag, as we continue to get more snow and bitter cold temps…. in the the teens.

I’m grateful for my archives during these months, so here’s a redo, of… what else a bench…. for Bench Monday’s a distant memory., in painterly mode
