Several years ago we put a cast iron and wooden bench in our garden. It was never used much and it has taken the brunt of several years of rain and snow and other forms of mistreatment. Frankly it is ready to collapse, so we will not be sitting there anyway.
There is advancing growth extending from the garden to the bench. Recently the vines seem to have taken a liking to the seat and I have not taken the time to train the growth back.
Nature always looks for the opportunity to recapture. And maybe that is a good thing.
PS: Also that vine might be poison ivy!
