Shadows

It took Alan barely half a day to finish the net-house frame.  To me, even though it is made entirely of recycled and scavenged timber, it is a thing of beauty.



Inside the space there is already a sense of enclosure, of being gently surrounded and protected, it has a lovely feeling.  I do hope the plants which find themselves in these beds will be as happy as I am!



For now, as we relish an unusually dry, sunny and warm beginning to October, it is a gorgeous shadow-land.  Suppose I'd better make a start on painting it . . .

  1. If your net hosue is anything like my shade cloth veggie patch you'll love it. We have just converted our 2nd large veggie patch to a shade cloth covered one too.

    Love the scavenge / recyled element to it too :D

    1. Thanks Jules, it has a lovely sculptural feel to it at present, of course that will change massively when the net goes on.

  3. A thing of beauty indeed, what a beautiful structure. Love the colour of the raised beds too. Very pretty.

    1. Thank you Sadie. The raised beds are Cuprinol "Willow". Very pleased with it, lovely colour and a nice product to use.

  4. Hello there :-)
    Thank you so much for popping by my little bit of the tinterweb and I really appreciated your comments. Though if it's laughs you prefer - I think my real blog 'eternally 28' might be better for chuckles! Xx

    1. Hi Rachel, welcome to Bag End and thank you for stopping to comment. Laughs are good too, but real life isn't always funny :) Will be thinking of you and HG today. xx

  5. Has the look of a cathedral skeleton - bet it is rather special inside it's frame :)

    1. Thank you so much for an absolutely perfect and “spot on” little comment :) It does feel cathedral-like inside but I thought if I said so someone would think I was being terribly gradiose. It does feel incredibly 'special' inside.

  6. Just been catching up and commented on the caravan. The netted beds will be great and such an asset to any garden. Better than having to net fruit each season which is what we do with the blueberries. They are flowering well again this Spring, though it's not very springlike at the moment, with a very cold wind, lashings of rain and small hail. We've had internet problems here as well as all the trouble I had whilst away, but hopefully everything has been solved and I'm back in blog land and doing a big catchup with all my favourites. Will email soon. Have you finished summer-time yet? If not then we are 10 hours in front at the moment, but when you put your clocks back, it will then be eleven. Take care & talk soon.

    1. Thanks Susan. This tunnel might (or might not) have doors. It is not so much to keep out birds but to give protection from the wind, to reduce the impact of heavy rain, and if we ever get a decent summer - to give a little shade.

      Glad your internet is fixed, and that you are feeling like catching up a bit. I think our clocks change on 30th October, but don't quote me . . .
