Isle of Wight

by | 20th December 2012 | Work in Progress

Early December and very cold and wet: here is a photo of a green oak pergola we’re installing in a new garden on the Isle of Wight.  Before too long, it will be festooned with vines and climbing roses; and the ‘big bed’ (the platform at one end enclosed by oak lattice), with canvas mattress and plumped cushions, will be fit for an Ottoman prince.
