Of course November in the northlands comes up with its own monochromal schemes. But yesterday and this morning there was and is bright sunshine, and since this week’s black and white theme at Cee’s is things we sit on, I thought I’d take a few photos (using the monochrome setting on my camera) of the back garden seat, which if not beautiful, has its moments in certain lights and with the sage growing through it. It is also of great utility on warmer days and we have indeed sat on it a fair amount during lockdown lunacy, and then arisen all be-saged, and hopefully the wiser for the herbal infusion.

Love it – especially in sepia. Also love “lockdown lunacy” – perfect expression.
Thank you, Ann-Christine. The lunacy is going from bad to worse here.
Well, about that here too…
How very lovely, especially those two sepia shots – you could have linked to mine this week with these photos. And yes, looks like we are all going to be able to have a very merry Xmas and then pay for it in the New Year…
And till March. I’ll add a link to yours. Not sure why I didn’t do that as I was thinking about your B & W post too.
And ground level no less. Good shots.
Thanks, Beverly. I was actually standing on the next level down outside our back door, and holding the camera up. And for one of the shots I stood on a chair! All is not what it seems in the Farrell garden 🙂
Beautiful shots and I really like your perspective. I’m imagining you hunkered down in the grass, peering up at the bench. 😉
Ah-ha! Not so much hunkered down as looking up from the next level down. Our house is built into a bank, so lots of different perspectives. Glad you liked these ones, Janet 🙂
Superb shots, Tish. Sepia works so well. I think “Lockdown Lunacy” should definitely be trending. 😳
Thanks, Sylvia. Our lunacy has now extended to the end of March, some areas more draconian than others. Meanwhile 67 million UK citizens are exiled from their medical and dental services unless they are having an emergency.
My sister-in-law in England was saying that when we spoke to her yesterday. She really needs to see her dentist. 😳
It’s hard to see how we will untangle this. Some people with really serious conditions have just been left stranded.
Love the 2 B&W photos – such an interesting angle.
Thank you, Alison.
every garden needs a place to sit 🙂
Some great images, especially the sepia, Tish
Thanks, Sue. I’m having a sudden liking for sepia.
I did a few years ago, must go back to it!
In my mind sepia tones are conjuring shades of Durer/Tenniel engravings/forgotten things in the attic…
Lovely wintery garden photos.
I somehow missed this post when you first posted. Such a wonderful post for this week 😀
Thank you, Cee.
Our garden looks awful — in color AND black & white. It got completely neglected this year and shows it!
It will come back though 🙂
