The Allotment Bench

The weather has been much kinder today. I was at Minnowburn, beside the River Lagan at Shaw's Bridge near Belfast, a property of the National Trust.

Today we were erecting a new wooden bench overlooking the allotments. The sun shone and we could strip down to polo shirts. I'd brought two hamburgers, rolls and coleslaw with me because we lit a barbecue at the garden beside the warden's office.

There were about half a dozen of us working today, though the numbers swelled to about double that figure when the barbecue was ready!

The photograph taken this afternoon shows the new gazebo and the allotments. Hopefully we might acquire a suitable weather-vane for the top of the gazebo at some stage.
