Park Benches

When my wife and I were in Switzerland in the summer of 2007 I was really impressed with the use of bright colour as an accent to the outdoor environment. On the West Coast vibrant colour is generally not used outside everything blends together. Benches tend to be a deep forest green. The benches that are in this lakeside park in Romanshorn were yellow, red, blue, and green all beautiful clear colours just like this yellow bench. 

This is a view of the bench looking out onto the Bodensee (lake Boden).

The vibrant yellow of this park bench against the rich green grass is incredibly beautiful.

Website Update.

My wife is doing a wonderful job with the new Happy Holidays website, it is coming along beautifully. She designed the banner that is at the top of this blog it is also the banner that is at the top of the new website. At the moment the old Happy Holidays website is still up. When the new site is ready to go up I will announce it.

Here are some samples of the new work available on the site.
