My green bedroom.




During the pukka Summer months we de-camp to our outdoor room.

It's a little like going on holiday (without the inconvenience of travel).

Yes, there really is a room somewhere under all that foliage; we almost need a machete.

  1. It looks wonderful. I hope the foliage doesn't damage the outdoor room.

    1. If anything, I think the foliage keeps it cool. It's mostly Wisteria, with some Clematis.

    1. It could be cooler, but I'd have to install a ceiling fan, and there's no electricity in there.

  3. Looks very cool under all that foliage. I heard you've got high temperatures again.

    1. I was trying to think what it looked like. Not a Hobbit house. A Smurf mushroom maybe. Very picturesque anyway.

    2. Not as hot as yours! We're expecting 30 C today; I can cope with that.

  4. Do Freddie and Bok wander in through curtains of flimsy voile?

    1. They do. Bok sleeps with me for my 10 min afternoon siesta, and Fred sleeps there at night.

  5. It looks like it's been there forever. Only seems like yesterday you were building it.

    1. It's mellowed well. It's all that foliage that does it.

  6. Add some Honeysuckle to it and you will get the perfume after the wisteria has finished?

    1. Not much perfume anywhere, but I do have a Mock Orange bush nearby that is amazing.

    1. I've now added a picture of how it was in 2011, just after we'd built it.

  8. I am trying to decide if it should be Architectural Digest or Home and Garden Magazine. Beautiful.

    1. It has a lovely atmosphere, looking out through all the hanging foliage.

  10. With being separate from the house and having no electricity you certainly are going on holiday to a unique destination!
