I love those chairs, and each year I resolve to buy two yet another season has gone by without them. Love the medley of colours, too.

Is that a 'now' pic? All that green grass? We're having some gray and brown and rain, but wait - the sun just came out! Your chairs called for it . . .

that is a "now" pic, sharon. this is the "green mountain state" after all. ) the lawn at the retreat stays green until it's covered with snow.

Like a lot of French people, I have always loved the all-American Adirondack chairs. The first thing I did when moving to the US 16 years ago, was to get a pair. I wish they had been as colorful as these, however. What a cheerful looking group! Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

I have a feeling the conversations that take place there are quite sophisticated and cover many fascinating subjects.

Great colors and a fine photo!

A chacun sa couleur!

So nice! A silent conversation is good for me...

Ah, good to see you back from your travels. I like the picture. It's full of questions. On another level, these chairs make me think pf Parcheesi pieces.

I just love this, the chairs look like miniatures. Great composition, Brattcat.

There's a lot of 'expectation' here Brattcat, those chairs are waiting for....!

Time was when no one would think of painting chairs a different colour - time was when they'd not be painted, of course. I love the individuality of colour - the optimism of it, the vibrance. Too right, imagine the conversation. I see four old Italian ladies in these chairs, all dressed in black yet lifted and inspired by the colour in the chairs they all talk at once ...

Oh such warm and sunny colors, embodied in those chairs. On a completely different topic, I like pizza.
