Aww my poor swing


By dee2uk


Well I have been toying with the idea of getting a new Arbour swing,all for the love of my wisteria ( turning out an expensive plant ).My brother made me my original one,see photo,but it has been dismantled and basically left to rot see further photos…..So I have now decided to stop being silly,and restore it back to health….it’s not like Im made of money,as the saying goes Make do and Mend.I shall post pic’s after it’s been done,I just hope it will be this weekend if the weather holds………ps notice how small the stella cherry is,it’s approx 15 yrs old now,and gives lovely fruit.
