Because it's surrounded by almost knee deep ivy and vines, I've always thought of this shed as a snake pit or a home for raccoons - and I've not even opened the door in five years or more. But today I started thinking that it has the potential to be again what it once was - a great garden shed. (Unfortunately I never saw it in its days as a garden shed - but the story goes that the best gardener in town owned our property before the house was built.) So I decided to take a peak inside. (Sorry - no inside picture for this post.) It's much roomier than I remembered - the well tank doesn't take up the entire space after all. There are some shelves and some pegs. There's a window. And there were no raccoons or snakes that I could see.
I think I could move my potting bench to the end or to the side after the ivy is cleared away. Repairs and lots of cleaning, but how nice to have my own gardening shed! And we may even get the well working again.
It has history and character - I do love that. I'll keep you posted!
I can't resist signing off with a butterfly picture. The butterflies are all over the lantana these days, especially in the late afternoon.
