Anyway, I like busy gardens in winter: they're scraped back to just the basic workings, the handsome weathered wood and canes and tools. All lovely and utilitarian with none of them showy flowers making a mess. Here are some photos of splendid shabby shedness. (you might remember these particular sheds from Five Sheds).
There you go. This blog got a nice mention from Oh Comely magazine today! So that's good - hello to anyone that came from there.
|When you go into the veg garden there's a big ball-bearing to hold the gate open - it's made itself two little hollows in the mud: one for holding the gate open, one for letting it close and you plop it between the two with your boot. What a nice simple thing!|
|Door held shut with a broken fork . . . upcycling.|
|After this shed slumped it had to have a new latch fitted.|
|A handy poking place.|
|Improvisation with a twig.|
|Nice poly-tunnel wires, all hung up and waiting.|
|Plenty of forks.|
|The crow scarer pinned to the ceiling with a screw right through it's heart. A revenge killing maybe?|
|And a splendid welly stand made of two bamboo poles.|
