Spiderwort, hostas, purple salvia and chrysanthemums.
My husband's family is getting ready for the estate sale of his parents' belongings. One of the things he brought home from his dad's workshop is this old bench. My first thought was to sand and paint it. It's kind of a funky color. But the more I live with it, the more I love it's stains and worn areas. It has seen it's share of things repaired and workshop projects. I think I'll keep it just the way it is.
