It’s finally spring, or as I like to call it, spend-every-waking-hour-its-not-raining-outdoors season. Spring, as you may have guessed, is my favorite time of the year: everything comes alive, new flower pop up every day, and it’s warm enough to read a book or eat a meal outdoors.

One lucky winner will be able to do both those things in their yard with today’s prize: Two outdoor benches from outdoor furniture and outdoor shed retailer Lifetime. Made of engineered wood, these sturdy benches won’t fade, warp or rot, so they’ll look good for years to come. But wait, there’s more! When you’re ready to eat dinner, turn the bench back upwards….

…and the bench also becomes a table! Push two together and you have a space large enough for family dining. Cool, huh? And since the bench-slash-table does double-duty, it will work just as well for an itsy-bitsy backyard as it will for a spacious one.

    I love getting out in the yard to prune and weed before everything comes into bud and blossom. Fresh air, sunshine and new growth – Spring!

    All the signs of spring in nature, especially checking out what's coming up in my own backyard.

  9. Christine Chapman says:

    When Spring has sprung, I run to the garden shed to get my tools, potting soil, seeds and start digging. I love getting my garden ready for the upcoming summer and fall months. There's nothing better than enjoying tomatoes fresh from the garden while sitting on my new Lifetime Convertible Bench, with a glass of iced tea!

    Longer days, open windows and flowers blooming!
