Errands and a rest home visit took us to a neighboring town, Auburn. Set in front of various businesses around the square is a delightful display of 20 benches painted by local artists. The benches are sturdy; built of oak by a local woodworker. After a summer on display they will be auctioned off at a September dinner. These are a few of the ones that caught my eye.
Imagine one of these "originals" sitting in your yard or garden!
Colorful brochures were available giving locations and information about the various benches. There were many people like us enjoying the exhibit, well-tended courthouse grounds and beautiful planters around the town square.
