The Shed I Never Owned. Sedgemoor, Somerset.

Not sure why but I have been thinking about sheds a lot today. I have always wanted a garden shed where I could take myself when garden stuff needed attending to....keep a radio up there you know somewhere away from the phone and life in general. I've never lived in a house where having one is very practical. The house I have lived in for the past 20 years is on the side of a hill about 25 steps to the the front door and about as many to the top of the rear garden. I have thought of alternatives though over the years. The garage is built into the side of the hill so I had this hair brain idea I could tunnel through the back wall and under the garden.....as you can imagine that was a non starter, all sorts of problems sprung to mind when I thought that one through. Then we have this huge retaining wall in the back garden so I thought I open up a door in that and dig into the garden....nah! These things seem to make so much sense at 1am half pissed...that's about the same time that Captain Beefheart starts sounding melodic. I've also longed for a cellar, as an alternative to the shed of course! So I thought maybe we could have the floor up in the lounge and dig down and get me a cellar....that one went down like a shit sandwich as you can imagine. The best I managed to come up with was the unused darkroom in the roof.....sounds cute eh? But all I wanted was a shed....one of these days I'll get me one and when I do it's gonna be big.

OK guys it's that Photobloggies time of year, there are categories to excite all of you. It doesn't matter who you vote for but vote! I'm not sure if it's the law but if it's not it should be. So get voting. Don't delay just do it today! you have until 15th February, the clock is a ticking!

OK today's photo was taken on Sedge Moor on the Somerset Levels a vast area of very flat land close to sea level that is very prone to flooding. The whole area has great historical significance as being the hiding place of King Alfred, in particular the Isle of Athelney. If you are interested in reading about it then click back there. The smallest of hills seems to stand out like a mountain due to the flatness around it. It was very flooded on the day we were there and so beautiful, teeming with wild birds who over winter here in their millions probably...or perhaps I'm exaggerating a bit. As always If you are curious where today's photo was taken then here is a map to help you.
