The weather has been really nice here for the past few days, very summery! And one of our favourite places to sit in the garden and soak in the good weather (albeit in the the shade) is the jungle hut.
We love sitting in it, even more so than it's previous incarnation. Perhaps because it is much bigger than it used to be and we feel the seating layout is much better?
What is it like to sit in our jungle hut (more a veranda really) and what views do we have from there? At the moment they look like this:
|Firmiana simplex the Chinese parasol tree|
|Ficus carica 'Ice Crystal' and Fatsia japonica 'spiders web'|
|Staphylea holocarpa rosea|
|Schefflera and tree ferns|
We're set to get some heavy rains from tonight lasting till most of the Saturday. Not complaining though as our garden needs the water after a string of dry and sunny days.
But even on rainy days we enjoy hanging out in there, remaining dry and comfy as the rest of the garden gets wet. We just imagine that we're sheltering from the monsoon rains in a tropical rainforest!
