garden sheds

3 sheds into 2 will go!

Changes in circumstances can result in changes happening in the garden too! When I had to give up angling because of health issues we found ourselves with a storage shed we no longer required, the one that had stored my fishing gear. All together at that time we had 3 sheds but hoped to reduce their number.

The old fishing shed was restored, re-roofed and shelves were added to store our garden gear tidily. The old garden store was demolished, and discovered several brightly striped hibernating queen wasps between layers of roofing felt.

In its place we erected the old shed moved from the Shade Garden. It was in need of plenty of remedial work and some added tlc.


It was treated to a new floor and roof.

It would soon be boasting a roof garden planted up with small grasses, perennials and herbs to attract wildlife and for us to appreciate. (see specific post)

A retired primary school head teacher, I now spend much of my time gardening in our quarter acre plot in rural Shropshire south of Shrewsbury. I share my garden with Jude my wife a newly retired teacher , eight assorted chickens and a plethora of wildlife. Jude does all the heavy work as I have a damaged spine and right leg. We also garden on an allotment nearby. We are interested in all things related to gardens, green issues and wildlife.

You have been busy with improvements. Sheds are wonderful but they are like everything else they need care every so often. Looks like you have the situation well under control. The flying stinging critters you can keep over there. I’ve had my encounter and am steering clear. 🙂 Looking forward to seeing the new roof garden.
