It’s May… The sun is shining, the birds are singing, the winter is finally deciding it will go away for real and not keep visiting us like an ex-roommate suffering from separation anxiety. So what do you do? Why you go out in the fresh air and sunshine of your backyard and start preparing for the beautiful days ahead. Whether you’ve got a shed that has stood the test of time or are looking at finally building one in your garden, Hug a Shed and Take a Selfie Day is your opportunity to show your appreciation for this incredibly versatile outbuilding!
History of Hug a Shed and Take a Selfie Day
Hug a Shed and Take a Selfie Day was born out of one man’s love of gardening and that sacred space of the gardener, the shed. In a shed, you can have your tools tucked away to perform maintenance on your lawn and garden equipment. In your shed, you can carefully plant and nurture the coming season’s plantings, with your hand’s wrist deep in potting soil and fertilizer, seed packets and soil conditioner. Moments like these are the hallmark of the shed lover’s serenity, and for that, it deserves a hug, don’t you think?
Hug A Shed and Take a Selfie Day is just a way of showing these humble structures the love they’re due. Those of us of the back yard crew know how much this little sanctuary matters. In addition to all of the above, sometimes it’s that space that’s just yours, often equipped with a little wood stove to make it warm in the winter months, and a fan to keep it cool during the summer.
It’s full of all the smells of our special leisure time, whether that’s grease and oil or fuller’s earth and fertilizer. We love our sheds, and Hug a Shed and Take a Selfie Day is a great day to show it.
