Wouldn't it be nice...

...to have a pretty area in your garden to sit and enjoy your surroundings or read a book? This pic was taken from an area in the front of a person's yard that we clean windows for. I snapped a few photos last summer. It's mostly trees and a bench with some annuals placed nearby. I wonder how much the lady of the house gets to sit out there as she works outside the home. If you had an area like this would you make the time to enjoy it?

@MarshaMusselman I like the picture because it is very pretty to sit out there and enjoy the surroundings. I have a porch I sit on to read a book or when the weather is nice to get sun on me.

A porch would be nice too. I have a deck but rarely use it for just sitting. I have mylotted there before though.

That is a very pretty place to read. I live in the forest with pines and some oak. Lot's of pasture, fern and soon wild flowers. It's pretty. I like having a lot of flowers around.

@MarshaMusselman It's nice to hear nature and not traffic while reading.

What a lovely spot. I would sit and let my mind wander. I get the most wonderful designs and ideas when I let my mind run free.

It does but so does the lake pics you've shared before. I would prefer water nearby too.

@just4him I definitely do. But, I wouldn't be able to sit on the grass to enjoy that water I'd need to take a chair of some sort.

This is lovely, we have two benches outside in the garden... the cats of my neighbors surely love to stay there, I sit there sometimes during summer.

@MarshaMusselman No, the other side of the garden, one is near the bamboo, the other under the holly tree.

@cherigucchi me too and before I get to old to enjoy it. Maybe by then instead of a bench I'll have a rocker.

I have a garden with a bench I enjoy in the spring and before the summer heat arrives. It is really nice. It is called Dustin's garden, right outside my steps in the backyard.

We shifted to a semi rural town just so that we could have a garden and we have a pretty large one with everything that qualifies it to be called a landscaped garden.
