Hello from Henley on Thames,
Unfortunately I missed the regatta, however, the river was still an awesome sight as we arrived.
I am quite small at 6ft by 4ft but fit perfectly in the corner of a delightful garden. My owner is a very keen gardener and it certainly shows as there is an abundance of wonderful plants, all perfectly laid out.
This week I am in the Gothic style and enjoy having beautifully arched windows . My roof is covered in cedar shingles which come all the way from Canada. I understand that over there they put these cedar shingles onto the roofs of their houses, so they must be good!
My owner has chosen a brilliant shade of green paint for me (jungle green) and my builders take great pride in painting me with care and attention. I am also very lucky that my owner chose for me to have a brass door handle and window finishing … I really am a very fortunate Posh Shed indeed!
Will write soon,

Today I am writing to you from bonny Scotland. After an early start from Herefordshire we travelled north up the M6 and I found myself tightly wrapped under tarpaulin which was lucky as it rained most of the way. In general the journey was long and boring, however, it was worth it because I’ve ended up half a mile from Edinburgh Castle!
The garden is lovely and I look out over the vegetable patch, hopefully my new owner will start off her little seedlings by my window next year.
I suppose my love of gardening is only natural given that I am in the ‘potting shed style‘, with the added detail of an opening window.
I am 7ft by 5ft which is always a popular size as it allows plenty of room for garden tools and a lawn mower. Not to boast but my door is wide enough for all but the largest mowers (I’m talking about the ones that you can drive about on).
Right, I best get back to my shedding duties, will write soon.
P.S. Imagine my surprise to find myself on Alan Titchmarsh’s ‘Love your garden’ programme last week. He’s a dear friend and and I was incredibly flattered to be featured as a shed which is a garden feature.
