Gosh. I leave the garden unattended for 2 months of the year and look what happens. I took a walk out in the garden today because it is in-between rain storms, and is weirdly warm here in the Pacific Northwest. It should not be mid 50s in January. As I walked around, I found nature has decided to take over my stone bench. While it is rather pretty and atmospheric, it will make the bench less inviting to sit on, knowing I am sitting on a living thing. Or it might just make it softer. Hmmm…could be a good thing?
