Julia had an old bike abandoned by the gardens. It lacked a few bits, but she’s a resourceful woman. With the addition of pallets, stakes, flower baskets and the remains of a bird feeder pole she has managed to produce a talking point. You might even call it a garden feature.

This upcycling is certainly the only cycling we’ve done in the last thirty years.

She’s been working me hard tonight, preparing for the Mencap Open Day so this is it for today. As usual, I have plenty of good intentions but have come up short on execution.

Tomorrow I will try harder.

    Love the garden feature.
    Brevity is a gift. Very Hemingway. So perhaps you can congratulate yourself?
    Thank you for your insightful posts, they always make me smile.

    Upcycling – very clever – both of you. Brilliant how Julia propped it up in a pallet (raised to the proper height). And love the blue crate behind it. This has me thinking . . . Nice to see your garden areas!
