In the teepee
15 May 2004
When we redid the garden, I promised the daughter that I would build her a bean teepee. I'd seen the plan in a magazine, and she fell in love with the idea. Thus, the teepee was duly built, and we planted scarlet runner beans all around it.
It became her secret room, her little hideaway, and she decorated it with pictures she'd drawn. Finally, she dragged her one of her playhouse chairs inside and sat down to read.
Consider that this is the same child who is now a teenager, and planning to make films to help you while away the hours.
Tech stuff: Canon PowerShot S110. Instructions for building the teepee came from Sunset magazine and are available here.
