Last evening was so lovely, we decided to go and see a friend who lives on the allotments that we used to work on. Well, I say he lives there because he almost does, he does have lodgings but chooses to stay in his shed for most of the year.
I liken him to the old days when gardeners etc lived in little sheds with everything they needed inside.
I'm really sorry about the quality of this picky but I can only think it was the sun shining into the shed. Here is Tom sitting on one of the seats inside having a good chinwag.
Here is A walking down his path, he's been on the allotments for we think about 35 years.
Notice the rag cushions, he makes these during the winter
Small log burning stove to keep him warm.
This is the cooking end, just a couple of burners and an old black kettle.
But he makes such a good cup of tea.
The outside of the shed. He has a small solar panel that renews his camera batteries and gives him a small light at night.
Puss, his constant partner for 16 years. He just loves his free life on the allotments and has never been de-flead or wormed in his life, don't ask me how but he's in such a good condition.
This white lump is a pizza Kiln he built, he's extremely clever with his hands.
Mounds of wood, mostly from pallets turn into all sorts of wonderful structures.
Here's a trellis in the making.
I'm hoping that you can make out the fox behind the trellis. He feeds a couple of foxes each morning and night.
Visiting A makes you realise that you don't really need all the trappings of this materialistic world to be contented and we went home refreshed.
