My friend Chaun tells me that this bronze container is specifically made for storing a hosepipe. I’m not entirely sure I believe him, but it does have drainage holes and it is the right size. Whatever it is, it would make great storage for all manner of garden bits and bobs. It comes from TK Maxx.
But maybe you’re more interested in the cat. Wispy spends most of her summer sleeping on the compost around the fig tree. The trunk is covered with chicken wire because she likes to use it as a scratching post.
