The new shed has been in place on plot 33 for a number of weeks, I’ve even managed to paint it a lovely shade of cream thanks to the warm dry weather that’s been hanging around. The paint of choice is Country Cream from the Garden Shades range by Cuprinol. The shed needs another coat at least and there are a couple of tricky spots to do that I can’t reach without a ladder.
I’m really pleased with how it looks with the little window curtains.
I plan to paint the inside too and then add bits and pieces I have collected including a bargain shelf unit I got from eBay for £5. I couldn’t resist adding some bunting inside for now, it looks so pretty don’t you think?
It’s not all been about beautifying the shed, I have put in some graft to get some beds ready for planting. But first I need to put up some temporary wire fencing using hook stakes to keep rabbits and deer out.
I’m very impressed with my inherited patch of rhubarb! Plenty of pies, jams and crumble on the menu I feel, perhaps a gin tipple too, you know, for medicinal purposes and all that!
Plot 33 has changed so much since I got it in March, I really enjoy the visits there. At the moment I’m digging a small flower patch next to the shed, with plenty of annual flowers coming along in the greenhouse at home it’s sure to be full of colour very soon.
