My rather wonderful (and kind and lovely and thoughtful!) husband, Chris, has made me (well, us) a new shed, using mainly recycled materials. It is the poshest shed I have owned! The old shed needed to be replaced as it had rotted and was leaning at a rather drunk angle. This new version is built to last and will be a practical working space, right at the end of the garden, opposite the lilac tree. Thanks, Chris, I love it!
It has metal shelves on one side, opposite the window and lino on the floor...
and a stainless steel potting bench on the other side, under the window.
I have the exciting job of deciding what is going where now. All the things stored in the old shed have been on the patio under a plastic sheet while construction was going on, and I am going to enjoy sorting it all out (I think!). I thought I had better take some photos of it before I fill it up again, as it will never be quite this tidy again...
Here are the last photos of this year's tulips. I have been looking to see what I may like to have next year. Ballerina will definitely feature again!
These are the tulips in tubs at the front - a single early and single late mix. Orange and white have featured here.
This is one which appeared in my last post but the colour has moved into the petals more now.
The lilac in the back garden is looking and smelling lovely.
Blueberry Blue Pearl is also flowering and I have seen lots of bees around it. I hope this means a good harvest in the autumn.
I couldn't resist a last look at Ballerina and Red Shine, enjoying the sun this morning. Beautiful!
