The shed again
And again with the shed (hey there's Vita)
And once more with feeling: the shed!
When we bought our house almost 6 years ago it had been terribly neglected, it looked very dark and gloomy even on a sunny day. The shed in the garden was no better and has been an eyesore for quite some time. Unfortunately I didn't have the time to do anything about it, until now. It's amazing what a lick of paint, a bit of elbow grease and some styling can do, don't you think? There, all better now, or is it? Because uh oh
there's more painting to do.Oh nooooooo!!!! Best get on with it then, while the weather is still good.
And the weather has been good, extremely good in fact. In April we would expect an average temperature of 11 to 14 degrees Celsius during the day. This April, temperatures have been ranging from 18 to almost 30 degrees Celsius. I think that this April will be another record breaking month. Last year we had the hottest July ever (in 300 years) followed by the wettest August ever. This April will probably be the warmest and driest ever.
Here's Madame Alfred Carriere, already flowering in April, unheard of in this neck of the woods.
Gardening baffles me. I can do houses but not gardens. Houses are obedient dogs, waiting patiently to know their master's bidding. Gardens are feline, nature and nurture in constant argument. Leave them alone for a minute and they will strive after some state of nature. They are second cousins to chaos.
