When you enter Montgomery Botanical Gardens you may notice that something is missing. Where’s the bench? The two beautiful Oak Leaf Benches that greeted visitors as they entered the gardens are not missing. Thankfully, they have been removed temporarily to be cleaned, restored, and refinished to help preserve and protect them from the elements. They will soon be returned to grace the entrance and provide a place to rest. A bit of historical reminder, these benches were carved by “Beneath the Bark” in Wetumpka from a gigantic old oak tree that fell in the garden during a storm in 2017. Patrons purchased and donated the benches to provide funds for the development of the gardens. We will all be happy when the two benches are refreshed and returned to the garden.
