Bag End

 I have been making a little folly in the garden for the last month. It started off quite simply, but you know how these things develop when you have too much time on your hands. But it achieved its objective and adds a little interest to a rather dull bank. It is my take on the hobbit house 'Bag End' in Lord of the Rings with the rather limited range of materials on hand.
Though I am pleased with it, the crowning glory is really the Acer on the little hill on the roof. It is a simply stunning autumn colour at the moment. It was also the single most expensive thing of the whole project.
