Summer furniture: the garden chair
As Leonard says, summer is a wonderful time of year, and being that we've had 24.7 mins of brilliant sunshine here today, I think that more than counts as an English summer, don't you? (Not forgetting parts of Scotland excluding the Welsh because they already have Shirley Bassey and Tom Jones).
Well, here's an example of a brilliant item of garden furniture you won't find in Argos in Bromsgrove, I can tell you that for nothing! (Well, it'll cost you £20.00 actually, but we'll talk about the money later). It's the GARDEN CHAIR!!! It is a very environmentally friendly chair, featuring upright timbers for woodpeckers to practise on, telegraph wires for migrating birds to perch on for a brief stopover on their way to Africa, with leaves for insects to go on so the birdies can eat them. So it's a bit of a 'Little Chef' really. You will notice the very attractive upholstery, resplendent with nest material spilling out of every hole.
If you have one of these, you'll be the envy of all your neighbours. My next-door-neighbour even reckons mine sends him secret messages, and he tried to throw it in the pond!
