All my garden woodwork has had a good clean today. The tea-house never lets me down, still in perfect condition after 32 years of use.
The shine has gone off the Dulux mahogany Weathershield, which is only to be expected after a year, it's the effects of the weather. I'll be giving it all another coat later in the month.

I always have to check the decorative panels on both this and the pergola railing to make sure none are starting to delaminate. Always possible with plywood which has gone through the trauma of being cut with an electric jigsaw, whatever the age. If left, the wood rots from the inside.

The rest is pretty tidy, few flowers at this time of the year, but that means less work.

The big acer in the front garden has lost half its leaves already. It happens every year at this time. I filled half the green bin with those I ollected today. This tree is due a prune in a couple of months time. "I just can't get it to grow evenly," there's always a few branches that "bolt."
