Photo Hunt - Utensils


The theme for this week's Photo Hunt is utensil. A utensil is defined as an instrument or vessel used in everyday life. Given that plant pots and knifey things are everyday implements for gaddeners I suppose they could be defined as horticultural utensils!

The photo was taken in an outhouse of Ingatestone Hall

That's a very nice photo. I wish my gardening utensils looked that way!

Have a good weekend.

Carver said...

What a great potting room. I love this shot for the theme. Happy weekend!

Liz said...

That was a great idea, jams.

Enjoy the weekend.

Wonderful photo Jams and I never thought of gardening utensils. I could have had a pleasing photo with lots of flowers with a spade in the corner instead of the lame one I did put up. My brain was out to lunch on this one.

Happy weekend to you.

Lovely atmosphere in that shot. Love pottering in the garden.

How funny.... both our posts are related to food!

As a foodie, how can I live without my utensils. They are the heart of the cooking.... :)

Ardent said...

Being a gardener, I would love to rummage through that room.

CherryPie said...

Great photo, and idea for the theme. Why didn't I think of that? :-)

Life Ramblings said...

Sandy B said...

Haha...that is not what we would call an 'outhouse' here in the United States! Very nice photo...

julie said...

Oh, that is a lovely room! I wonder how the gardens look like.

YTSL said...

Great picture! And definitely way different from the kitchen stuff I usually associate with the word "utensils"!

I would never have thought of flower pots as gardening utensils. :P

James Higham said...

Is that a kitchen?

Bengbeng said...

doesnt look like a pic..more like a drawing/art. beautiful..the starkness

Sreisaat said...

Hi Jams... I'm back again. That's a nice pottery room - it reminds me of a fellow blogger who runs pottery classes in France. There's so much detail in the picture. I have to agree with Beng up there, it looks like a painting!

Hootin' Anni said...

pots for GARDeners too!!! [sorry, I couldn't resist]

My photos are posted. See if you can find the 'eight' implements I used. If you can find time sometime today to stop by....

Happy Saturday.

Gabriel said...

Great picture, Jams! As I said in my own post, in spite of your perfect definition of the word 'utensil', all I could think of was knives and forks...

Beautiful shot!
And I envy everyone that has an outhouse like that.
Decent room to store and work on, sigh :D!

That looks like a wonderful place in which to "lose oneself" to the outside world. Great shot.

Yes... an "outhouse" in North America has a very different use than in the UK... what the Scots would call "t'wee hoosie".
