We have a pair of cedar Adirondack chairs that we put in the garden during the summer months. We sit in them often, enjoying supper, drinks, or just a bit of rest. The cats use them frequently as well, in fact, I think more than we do! Usually, they are put away in the garage in the fall, this year we neglected to move them.

The other day I noticed them in the snow, at that point it had just snowed so there was snow on the arms and along all the flat areas. They looked like they were just waiting for someone to sit down.

I’m kind of glad that we didn’t take them in. Every time I come home, I see them sitting there in the snow waiting, waiting for the snow to melt, spring to come, and the weather to warm. Waiting to be used once again.

Do have seating areas in the garden?

    Susy, yes, I have a rebuilt picnic table that was given to me. It been a place of rest and relaxing at Terra Nova Gardens.

    Have a great day envisioning sitting in the garden.

    Yes, we have a couple of colorful Adirondack chairs and a metal bench. A few years ago we had a large maple cut down and the contractor suggested placing a large cross-section it in the middle of the seating area. The new coffee table made the area so much more inviting. I can’t wait for spring so I can hang out there again.

    Ah, summer days lounging in the yard! We have two chairs on our dock, though they are seriously in need of a re-finishing due to the weather and occasionally being submerged when it floods.

This is a daily journal of my efforts to cultivate a more simple life, through local eating, gardening and so many other things. We used to live in a small suburban neighborhood Ohio but moved to 153 acres in Liberty, Maine in 2012.

Even though I have plans of "not buying any new plants this year" I break that each and every year....
