This is a small but favourite part of my garden. It is built on an old area of hardstanding, so giving a rubble-filled soil ideal for planting of Mediterranean, shrub-steppe type perennials, herbs and sub-shrubs in a rather eclectic mix. This gets sun all day.

The summerhouse I designed and build around a set of windows salvaged from a nearby house refurbishment. It is ideal for afternoon tea, evening wine and as a quiet retreat or study space, but I don't take my work here!
