Friday Bench: Spirit Song Over the Waters

I’ve spent a week gazing at this most magical of waterfalls, reputed to fall into a valley which inspired Tolkien’s Rivendell. The falls themselves inspired Goethe to write ‘Spirit Song Over the Waters

I took this photo on the start of a walk which takes you to behind the falls – I got soaked! 🙂

Friday Bench: Escape to River Cottage

Life’s been rather hard recently so it was great to have the opportunity to escape to River Cottage HQ earlier this week.

It was an inspiring and delicious day. During our tour of the kitchen garden with Head Gardener Helen, these simple benches in the shade (it was stupendously hot!), one surrounded by Erigeron caught my eye.

Friday Bench: Spun II

Following Barbara’s discovery of these seats in South Africa in a previous Guest Bench,  I was delighted to find some of Thomas Heatherwick’s ‘Spun’ chairs on the 16th Street Mall in Denver.

They were very popular and there was lots of laughter and squeals of delight as people spun themselves round or got their parents to start them off.

Judging by the results from Google when I looked for Thomas Heatherwick chair, one of these can be yours for around £340.
