I've been eyeing this one up for a while, because I love painting wood. However - the prolonged cold, the snow, and the current wet weather means that the wood is thoroughly saturated. I would like to see it bask in full sunshine for several days before I consider painting it, and at this time of year, the sun doesn't hit that part of the back garden at all.
So I am substituting this item for now, but it's going on my Next 100 list, so that I can do it at some point over the summer.
I had a look round the garden for other bits and bobs that needed doing, and settled on pruning the Flamingo Tree.
