hanks for posting those, SweetPea....I particularly liked the last one as I'm a dog rose fan.

Garden tattoos? Or generally cool and interesting tattoos?

Thanks, KEF......sadly it seems to have lost its way of late.

SweetPea, you're quite beautiful......remember that.

I'm keen on photography and would love to take a portrait pic of you.

Perhaps it would be apt to add this to this thread.

The cheap mineral felt sold & used for shed roofs has a very limited life.....it usually succumbs to high winds or rotting after a very short while.

I have a large/ish shed and summerhouse, both were felted as above when new. When they needed re-felting, I decided to have them both 'hot felted' by professional roofers...it cost £100 per building and came with a 25 year guarantee.

The process involves the roof being stripped clean, an under-felt being applied, this is heated & melted with a flame-gun, next a heavy duty mineral felt is laid on to this and both are fused together, again with the flame-gun.

No nails are used and it's a really neat job.

Hi, Jackie......I've had this problem in the past and to be honest most sheds with ship-lap or tongue & grooved boards have a little seepage during very heavy rain. However, you could seal the gaps (during a dry spell) with either clear silicone sealant or weatherproof caulking......both applied with a mastic gun.

Good luck.

I always worry what they will look like when everything heads south.......the watering can (very pretty btw) may look like it's been in the crusher.

You'll be cutting before you go, Lizzie......hope you don't miss the best of them.

Best remind your house-sitter to keep them cut regularly.

Have a lovely time.

Never freeze them, KEF....would admit I've never quite got the hang of it, but they're orible when I do them.
