It really is lovely Anne, and well done to Iris too, no doubt there will be some lovely snowdrops added :D

Beautiful work by Iris - we had a really delightful time showing a group of gardeners in a trip she had organised around our garden. We have plans for a new 'potting' shed but I doubt it will be as marvellous as this! (Graham Gough at Marchants does have what he and Lucy call a 'potting palace' so some good ideas to draw from  :))

Fantastic work, Anne! The terrace sets off the shed nicely and will be a lovely place to sit out.

Thank you, Matt and Tim - and yes, Iris is quite an artist. I'll be on "Galanthour" with her again in February. Maybe I'll see some of you at Shaftesbury.

I am particularly happy that birds and bees have accepted the shed: a couple of great tits nests in the box under the gable and there is a nest of black redstarts under the roof. And wild bees are populating the nesting places I hid in various places.
