Today Ed began putting up a new structure in the garden. The structure will form a place to sit in the evening, to catch the last of the sunshine.

The patio was already there, previously serving as the base for a shed to store hay and feed for the goats. A perfect west facing spot for a bench, maybe, but alas the trees above drop debris and the birds generously drop droppings. 

The solution is a frame with a roof. A sort of gazebo come pavilion. 

Built from English chestnut sourced from the Ashridge Estate. Ed has built it off site and is slowly pegging it all back together. 

Weather permitting progress will continue tomorrow.  As you can imagine the view today is all about this exciting project. Slightly different to my chosen view for this season, I hope you will understand my variation.
