"For me, gardening is the greatest of all human achievements. Microchips, lasers, fiber optics—these inventions pale beside the domestication of plants. Gardeners harness the sun. Ours is an alchemy more precious than turning lead to gold. We can turn sunlight into sugar. Plants, of course, have been photosynthesizing without our help for some 450 million years; we only learned to make the most of it 10,000 years ago. But no discovery before or since has made such a difference. With the invention of gardening, the human species blossomed...Ours is the mother-of-all-skills." ~Roger B. Swain

That's some swanky shed, Lyn!

Thanks MareE. Shed inspired by John Deere! That entire back area has now been lasagna'd in preparation for garden expansion next year.

Well done Lyn & DH.
That's a mammoth task you've undertaken, but with patience and care you will have a wonderful haven.
PS I also love your shed - so bright and colourful! I am not that brave though, and painted mine French Vanilla and White!!!! :roll:

Thanks Brenda, hubby didn't want those colours but I think he's happy with it now. It's drab and grey a lot of the year so I insisted on something bright and colourful. Your French Vanilla and white shed really suits the location you have it in. I don't think this would look good there. :lol:
