Riverside furniture - a sitter's guide

We like to renew, reuse and recycle where possible here at the River Field.

These little log seats were cut with a chainsaw from an old sally tree we pulled out of the river.

The armchairs, meanwhile, were saved from a slow, dusty death of woodworm and barn mould. They are now enjoying their twilight years on the riverbank, while fishermen and people out for a stroll enjoy them.

I planted willow saplings to wind through the frames, and tomorrow I'm going to shove in some buddlia too to attract the butterflies.
