The old garden seat by the apple trees catches the afternoon sun and I like to sit there and daydream for a while. It is almost falling apart and needs patching up but I quite like the mossy patina so am loath to give it a coat of paint. But this morning I made a cushion for the seat so at least it is clean and comfortable to sit on. I bought a piece of foam that just happened to be the right size and covered it with some summery stripey fabric. It’s not a tailored piece of upholstery but it does the job.
Yesterday we drove over to the garden centre and spent another small fortune on pots and shrubs for the patio. We bought another cordyline, a bay (laurel) bush and a purple hebe. They certainly help to soften the hard landscaping.
