Pirate's Bed


Pirate's bed was named after a long haired guinea pig. The steps leading to some old pots, made from disused pipes, are an unusual feature. The weeping willow tree overhangs the bed, it is quite sheltered and very dry but we do manage to grow some choice erythroniums and other spring plants. To increase the amount of light coming in, overhanging branches of the willow tree have to be kept pruned.

This photo is of the archway between the shed which are between Pirates bed and the Horseshoe bed. The narrowest of our archways, getting a wheel barrow through is not easy, but there are good alternatives so it doesn't matter.
