Sometimes just a bench or some form of outdoor garden seating is all that is needed to create a retreat or getaway. This is especially true if the yard has lots of trees and shade. This hand-made bamboo bench is a welcome respite for visitors at the San Diego Botanic Garden, where it can be found in the Garden's bamboo forest.

Formerly known as Quail Gardens, the San Diego Botanic Garden has the United States' largest bamboo collection. The bamboo and many other species thrive in the region's semi-arid Mediterranean climate.
