Tulips, A Field and Our Shed

20 Apr

The evening sun on one of the tulips tubs is really lovely.

We passed a beautifully ploughed field today and were able to pull over to get a photo of the fabulous furrows.

We’ve bought a shed for the allotment, one of those that looks like a sentry box, to keep tools in rather than wheelbarrow them down from home each time we go. We have some duplicate tools – from Mum’s gardening which is  lovely – and when the car-boot sales begin again will go hunting.

I am delighted with our beautiful little shed.

    What is car boot sales?

      hello, a car boot sale is where people run up to a field with their cars full of things they no longer want or need and then customers turn up and buy the unwanted stuff. It’s always brilliant for finding little treasures and useful things. Thank you for calling in and taking the time to comment. 🙂

        Strange. Are these boot sales organized and people know when and where they will be held, or do people randomly drive to fields and open their trunks with the hopes in common knowledge of by passers that they will know what’s happening?

          No. :). They are organised and advertised! :).

    The shed’s a little cracker! I can wait for the carboots to start up (safely) again. They are so good for plants, tools and random quirky garden objects. Take care, Lulu of Long Mizzle x

      Thank you, Lulu. Our dear little shed was blown over by the hoolies but we’ve spent all afternoon securing it and now it is safe, we hope. :). Random quirky is just what I love. 🙂

    What an orderly place your allotment is, perfected now by the little green shed. Your tulips are gorgeous!

      It blew over! We are now on a mission to move it and anchor it in a different way. The hoolies round here are truly wild! 🙂
