We all need a place to which we can escape sometimes. A hidey-hole for secret games, a quiet moment or time alone. So we made a garden tent.
It was of simple construction; a few poles (which we found around the garden) and some strategically chosen forks in the trees.
Ropes weren’t necessary, it was always intended to be a temporary structure.
Some strong knots in colourful tablecloths and a sarong.
A draped roof.
Mat for the floor.
Plenty of shade, tucked out of the way behind a bush. An ideal retreat from the busy business of being a kid.
