Benches at the Chelsea Physic Garden

A rather prosaic bench inscription (although the moss is nicely buttery, it has to be said!)...


This one was more personal, I like the heart carved in the wood (it made me think of lovers' hearts and intials on trees) and also the wine glasses clinking (under the seat, next to the plaque) ...



It was hard to resist going to sit on these, although the rain stopped play ...



And I loved the shape of this one ...

The mossy one is lovely, do you have a photo that shows all of it?

There is something deeply evocative about benches, a little like doorways. They always seem to have stories to tell - never mind just offering a quite place to rest weary feet and reflect.
Is the whole of the mossy bench mossy?
