Gardening Diary 🌱 β€” πŸ“… 23rd April 2021

In July 2011 my father-in-law built a treehouse for our children.


(Apologies for the quality of the photo - it was taken with an old Blackberry 9300 mobile phone)

Now, nearly 10 years later, the children have long outgrown such things. Having a shed up in a tree wasn’t too practical or convenient so (finally!) over the last couple of days I have dismantled, relocated and reconstructed it.

It took me considerably longer to dismantle and get down from the tree than it did to rebuild.

The shed is still in fairly good condition but the next job is to paint it with a wood preserver. I also need to take advantage of the good weather over the next couple of days to build a roof where the shed used to be - we use the area that was underneath the treehouse for storing, drying and seasoning logs.
