When I was in Bristol recently I passed a shop specialising in all sorts of engraving and brasswork ~ most interesting and just my type of shop. I had been considering having a brass plaque made for the tree bench I recently made, which now is at the garden where my friends Sue, Fran and I meet every Wednesday.

Here again is the bench, after a number of coffees have been enjoyed over delightful and amusing conversation, during the past few weeks.

And today I fitted the plaques.

. . . a closer look:

I had to be careful of the wording because normally such an inscription on a bench occurs when a person has passed on. 

lol . . . all three of us being very much alive I avoided the words, "in memory of".


  1. That looks great! The finishing touch! :)

    1. Thanks Betsy . . . on to the next project . . . :)

  2. Hi Eddy - looks great and describes exactly the whys and whats ... wonderful to see the result -happy days indeed ... cheers Hilary

  3. A nice added touch indeed
    Good you took heed
    But hey, if you did not
    Could really bring fame to the plot
    For you could pretend to be a ghost
    A haunted bench then at your coast lol

    1. People would indeed feel daunted
      If they knew the bench was haunted.
      So I think I shall pretend
      And say I had a sticky end . . .
      Might as well have lots of fun
      And shout, "Boo!" and make 'em run . . . lol

  4. HI Eddie....
    Very nice about a few potted plants?
    Enjoy your week...
    We are hot and humid here...feels like 38c! 😅😅😅
    Linda :o)

    1. Thanks Linda . . :)

      Potted plants, maybe . . . but we are gradually planting the new reclaimed areas.
      We have started the next project of cutting through some wild brambles to make another walkway. Thinking of buying a machete or hiring a wild man from Borneo . . . lol

  5. Just passing through and spotted your blog. Just had to pop in to say Hi! Gosh, it's been a long time!

    1. Hi Valerie, what a peasant surprise ~ gosh it is a long time.
      Please call more frequently . . . and very good to see you. I am wandering over to see your blog . . . :)

  6. And I am sure you will have many more interesting conversations with your friends over a cuppa coffee while sitting on the bench in the shade of the old tree.... what a lovely spot. And the plaque makes it so special, so personal. What a great idea.

    1. Thanks, Sham. Well, there will be something to remember me by when I pop my clogs . . lol

    2. Keep your clogs unpopped for a while, Eddie.

    3. I'm going no-where . . . the only clogs around here are those I bought when in Holland . . . lol
