Bench Series: Message (4)

A bench in the Fern Gully, Royal Botanic Gardens, Melbourne.

Dr Philip Moors was the Director and Chief Executive of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Melbourne from 1999 to 2012.

Here’s my final bench with a message, hot off the camera and only two days old! I came across this bench in the Fern Gully of the Royal Botanic Gardens in Melbourne on Saturday. I was intrigued by that phrase “in recognition of”, which is so unlike the “in memory of” that you usually see on benches. A quick online search revealed that Dr Philip Moors was the Director and Chief Executive of the Gardens from 1999 to 2012 and, from what I could find, he does not yet warrant a memorial bench. 😉 The gully itself is a cool, shady stretch of vibrant green that follows a gently twisting water course; as you stroll along the walkway, you are accompanied by the gurgle of water tumbling on its way. Quite delightful.

This is another photo of the same bench.

Isn’t this a lovely spot to sit and admire the ferns?

  1. Oh this is a lovely simple bench and how wonderful to have one dedicated to you whilst you are still alive and able to enjoy it. Melbourne Botanic Garden on the list. I may get back to Melbourne, one day!
