Lounging About

For those not based in the UK winter here ended about three weeks ago and we went straight into a heat wave (at least that’s how it feels to me). Fortunately I was ahead of the game and had been stalking eBay for a hammock – I had a hankering for one.

I don’t have two helpfully placed mature trees in the garden so it needed to be a free-standing one a frame. And I finally found one I liked which was reasonably priced.

It’s relatively easy to put together, although a bit bulky for me to do alone so my dad helped (well in all honestly he did it and I helped him – he reads this so I have to tell the truth).

And I love it….

It’s popular with Heidi (who has lent this blog her name) to sit on….

And it’s well-timed as the garden is really lovely at the moment. Some of the plants I put in last year are already quite mature.

And the sweet peas I started from seed on the window ledge are doing well.
