Damson & Ash

T minus 135

The past two days I have been putting a second coat of stain on the decking area. Mum so ably having provided the first coat when she was here.

First the Summer Damson for the balustrade, trellis and path. It’s amazing how the colours fade overtime and this was particularly noticeable as I painted the trellis – the algae green showing up brightly against the damson purple which gradually replaced it.

 

Day two has been spent re painting the deck itself, along with the gate and fence in Ash Black – removing all traces of blue.

I am particularly proud of the balustrade and the trellis as this was all my work 11 years ago. My most major piece of DIY to date.

I put the path down in 2003 with the help of my dad along. Eleven years ago the deck was mostly constructed by Geoff with my help.

Many a late Spring and Summer gas been spent on the Deck, although the British weather has often curtailed us.
