This Garden Blogger’s Retreat, designed by Michael Devine, is one of the sheds in the Living Stylishly in Nature: Re-Imagining the Humble Garden Shed special exhibit at the Berkshire Botanical Garden. in Stockbridge. Wouldn’t you love to walk out your door and through your garden to this ‘shed’ to begin your post for the day?
Can you tell that two thirds of the back wall is covered with tall mirrors? Swagged with handprinted fabric? However, I noticed that there is no chic, slim laptop on the writing table. Can it be there is no wi-fi? Neither is there the least sophisticated point and shoot camera.
Oh well, if I have no laptop, or camera (surely there really is wi-fi if only I had the computer) I guess I’ll have to lounge on my comfy sofa and leaf through the books on my faux bois bookcase and think. Thinking is a very important part of writing and blogging, you know.
These sheds are for sale. Well, not this one. It already sold for $5000. The accoutrements cost extra.
This exhibit at the Berkshire Botanical Garden will run through September as will Sitting Pretty: The Garden Bench as Sculpture. The Benches are for sale, too. I have to tell you, the gardens are looking their best this year. It is worth the trip.
