A Hand-Made Bench…

A hand-made bench – or hand-assembled, because some muppet forgot to put the electric screwdrivers on charge beforehand. We were forced to take turns on the rubbish screwdriver that only just fitted the screws. To say it was an easy day would be hard. Drizzling rain, traffic problems getting on site, pilot holes not pre-drilled into parts of the bench…. But Marcus and myself struggled on.

A building site behind, but a lovely, if grey day view, the other way. This is what the benches are all about. Creating windows that look out on to open countryside.

Flora and fauna brought nothing new, but some wonderful photos.

Some lovely wildflowers and some great mini-beasts and fungi….

Just a quick look up and down – this is how wide we need to make the path so that it has enough sun to dry out.

Well that is it for July. One more bench to put up and then we are just snipping back and picking up litter until September.

I will progress the nature reserve angle this week and see if we can become a special site.

Great outcome to a tough start of the day.
