I thought you might enjoy a look at Peter Sparrey's work here. I adore the yellow bowls. The markings on ours are like an intricately hand drawn map, the lid a perfect fit, the handle lively.
After a week's rain it's back to the garden redesign and I find that there too I am daring to be simpler and simpler....
But I am continuing first with my honest look at the current condition of things. Some of the garden furniture is in a parlous state...(I wonder what parlous means exactly?) Anyway it is not good. The bargain sets of coloured table and chairs are wearing out and/or fading.
.One of the found-on-the-shore planks is rotten, the other is beginning to rot but will do another year if I give it a scrub and position myself on it carefully..
In the wetter west of Scotland wood furniture doesn't always weather to a lovely silver..
Before you get depressed too, here's a photo from July last year..
Oh OK, I'll save it for tomorrow.
