It’s damp and dull…

here today so I’ll be spending much of it armchair gardening or sofa flying.

Here’s another allotment painting, this time showing the inside of a shed and the view through the door.

The shed

Once again I don’t know the artist, and it’s another picture that would make a good jig-saw if it isn’t already one.

Have a good week!

  1. You too! Another lovely nostalgic painting, I wonder who the artist is? You’re right, it is a jigsaw, one of my favourites too.

    I agree it would make a good jigsaw, keep warm x

    My Dad had one of those old “Push-me Pull-you” lawn-mowers. Crikey, they were hard work!

  4. elaine says:

    It is already a jigsaw – I’ve done it. Great picture – I still have one of those manual lawn mowers – it gives a lovely cut.

    I love these pictures, I think they’re the pictures which spring to most people’s minds when allotments are mentioned. Enjoy your sofa flying, it’s damp and dull here too today.

    I also remember the lawn mower. Imagine that the jigsaw takes a while to complete, but fun to do. Have a good week, Mike. We’ve over a foot of snow here, so still digging out.

    I use a hand mower at my allotment between plots and raised beds. It is very easy to use unless the grass is a bit too long and wet. It does not take long to wiz round.

    I have a memory of a jig-saw not dissimilar to the picture. There are a range of them, countryside, gardening, farming, implements in sheds and barns. It is very warming. xx

      Menhir there are a few which look very similar. There are indeed, as I found when I started looking at jig-saw websites yesterday. It certainly is. xx

    Another wonderful picture, I really love it. Armchair gardening and sofa flying are two of my favourite things. I hope you have a good week Flighty. CJ xx

    My shed is like that, or it would be if I removed the 4 underbed drawers, a roll of carpet and a dozen metre long shelves I put there temporarily.

  11. Shamini says:

    Ooh, that is a lovely painting. Very warm.

    I have shed envy!

  13. karengimson says:

    Tidier than my potting shed. This year I plan to get really organised in there!

  14. Love the image, I grew up seeing the Norman Rockwell covers as they were published so it really stirs those memories.

  15. Liz says:

    Great picture! I’d like a shed like this one, I can almost smell the earthy, terracotta dusty smell – roll on summer!

  16. Chloris says:

    I love your shed picture. In fact looking at it has made me decide I really need a nice shed like that. I have tumble down stables full of cobwebs and rubbish but I would like a nice shed with windows and a potting bench. Lovely.

  17. Matt @ Garden59 says:

    The shed in the picture is positively tidy compared to mine at the moment!

  18. nikkipolani says:

    Ah, yes, this would make a very nice puzzle indeed. Lots of fun details and no gigantic swaths of a single color! I did one like that over the holidays and it became a matter of matching up shapes only. Ugh.

  19. snowbird says:

    What a marvelous looking shed….I think we all dream of having one like that. I have a shed….filled to the brim with coal and more. This would make a rather good puzzle. Hope you are ready for the winds and rain tomorrow, seems we have to batten down the hatches once again. xxx

  20. Definitely a great jigsaw candidate! I admit to being very fed up of all the dull, wet weather, though I am grateful not to have experienced floods.

  21. hencorner says:

    Yep, leave your shed door open and the hens will come wandering in…..
    Just shoo them out before they poo!
