Bench

bench hania chania

RuneE
invented the Friday bench photo meme. When he sees my photo today, he may be wondering where the bench actually is. But the rhododendron more than makes up for the lack of bench space.

This bench is located outside the stadium of Hania.

  1. Δώρον, άδωρον :-D, not sure what the English for this expression is though. It's like a present that's not worth giving (maybe) :-)

    However, i like the concept of a pot having an olive tree (i think) for shadow and benches around it. If the plant gets trimmed it's going to be a very useful spot for people taking a walk.

  5. Indeed it does. Can one imagine a greater combination than a bench with its own rhododendron?

  6. Who needs a bench when you have gorgeous blooms such as these!!

    You left a comment recenty on my guest post on Phivos's blog (about Italy) commenting how you discover a country through it's food - and I could not agree with you more. My stomach dictates my travels. I recently tried tripe twice within 2 weeks simply because it was a regional speciality in both Florence (the upcoming trip I was talking about in Phivos' blog) and in Stuttgart Germany while visiting friends. And though this isn't something I would typically eat, I found in the right surroundings it wasn't half bad!! After our recent journey to Italy, I'm already planning another trip in a few months and the decision was primarily dictated because I've run out of Honey Basalmic Vinegar that they make in Sicly and Naples region... so a trip is order!
    Take care!

    Lovely image with the plant growing like this! Is this a rhododendron? It is beautiful.
