Hush-a-bye baby…..

….on the tree top.
Our latest project; my idea, oupa’s (grandfather in Afrikaans) manpower; was for the grandchildren. I love swings in trees and believe it is an essential part of every garden and childs growing up experience.
After too many months of talk and no action, I devised the plan and we headed out to buy some rope. The swing consists of some left over oak floor boards and my knotty husband’s favourite ingredient, rope!
A couple of hours and a few knots and whippings later (not me being a slave-driver but rather a roping term), we have a wonderful addition to our apple tree.

One of the juniors is coming over today and the other next week, and I am sure it will get a very thorough testing!

Here’s to many hours of fun in the tree….
