Monochrome Weekend


Overgrown.

A trellised bench at the end of a once-loved garden.


Aileni started this theme. See more photos at the Monochrome page.

Quite a fight to get a seat there.

Johnny Nutcase said...

nice one...but it kinda makes me want to fix up the garden! :)

Gry said...

So sad. This picture made me wonder who lived here.

Carver said...

That looks like a portion of my garden. This shot inspires me to get out with the clippers and loping irons.

Carolyn Ford said...

With a little teamwork that garden could be up and blooming in no time! But, so sad for now. And, the bench...what a view someone must have had once upon a time!

Dagrun said...

A lot of texture and details in this one, indeed a great b&wh subject.

Irene said...

What a mess .... wish I could help!

Nydia said...

Oh poor abandoned garden...

But Aileni is silly! LOL

Kisses and love from us, sweetie.

This looks like a place for me where I could get sweat on fixing and make it back from what this place may have looked like before. Indeed, very unique for monochrome weekend. Nice one.

I would like to have that arbor in my garden -- minus the tangle.

"Wrap your arms around me" ;-)
Love the texture in this post.

Nice shot and great in b/w!

Have you been visiting my garden? :-)

You find beauty where other just walk by.

Very unfortunate garden. Next!! lol

John said...

There's a bench seat in there somewhere, probably worth clearing the weeds away.

Vita Stunder said...

I would love to take a walk around this place!

Amanda said...

That is one tangled mess! but it looks like that it's the back of the arbor and not the front, right? It looks good in B&W.

Sad but a great shot.

Great shot. It must have been a beautiful place to sit and contemplate.

Once loved indeed. The detail is terrific.

Serline said...

Wow, I could really make good use of it in my garden back in Singapore.

michael bird said...

Ah, Nature. Has a way of reclaiming and pretty quickly, too.

Kitty said...

There's still so much potential for it to become a lovely garden seat once again!

Laerte Pupo said...

I post a wood bench too.
I think your bench gives back you goods remenbers.

Coffeeveggie addict. said...

memories behind those bench...and like aileni said am not sure if someone would still want to try sitting there.snakes might be living there lo!

Petunia said...

Overgrown indeed. But still a great shot!

Ann said...

That tangled mess of overgrowth is really beautiful, although it does negate the point of having a seat.

Re your question about my shot - that structure protects the archealogical dig site in front of (and underneath) the new YHA. My post of last Thursday has more information on the new building and the dig site.

VIVIDLY NEGLECTED
