At the beginning of April, down on the allotment, there was this to see:
John's shed, and further down, showing a bit of green paint, Alan and Brenda's shed/greenhouse.
And my little tree.
Today, sad sights.
Alan and Brenda's shed/greenhouse was set alight in the small hours of Sunday, and everything lost, including all their tomato plants and gardening equipment.
Thankfully, they had blocked up the little hole where in previous years blue-tits had nested, so no baby birds died for someone's warped enjoyment.
John's shed was burned down too; he is away on holiday, and won't know anything about this till his return. He has lost a shed this way before.
Plants nearby were scorched: the other Alan's yellow rose...
Ian's fruit bushes, and...
....my little tree.
