H...

....is for Hammock...


...hanging in our garden.  We bought this hammock when travelling round Ecuador but we had no where to hang it for years.  When we bought our house the first big job we did was landscape the garden, it was a patch of grass when we moved in.  We my husband built an arbour with attachments for the hammock.  There is an unruly honeysuckle growing over the top, you can see a picture of it here along with others of the garden, and a small thyme lawn underneath.  I loved lying in it with the children when they were babies, nowdays they tend to use it whilst I am pottering in the garden.

  1. I love hammocks! We have one we swing between the bizarre concrete pillars in our garden. They're supposed to be for a clothesline but one space is reserved for the hammock on those rare wind-less sunny days!

  2. I love the idea of a hammock. I have one in my future.. when the garden is all finished and I can stretch out under the shade of the trees just admiring it all. Hey ho!

  4. They always look so nice. Like a solace. In my country babies dont have cribs but hammocks and seeing this reminds me of my sister when she was little and I would move the hammock to make her sleep =) #alphabetphoto

  6. Our neighbours used to have one and, I have to admit, that I do hanker to add one to our garden. Restful just to see it strung up between two posts. #AlphabetPhoto

  7. Looks like a great spot for a hammock. Ours moves around a bit - we haven't found the perfect place for it yet...

  11. I so nearly used Hammock! We have a similarly colourful one which I brought back from Brazil years ago and we had to build a special spot for it using two railway sleepers on end. We all still love rocking in the hammock -one of my favourite places on a sunny day!
