As the east of England has soaked up the last of this early summer sunshine before some much needed rain, our readers have been busy snapping away at their garden’s most impressive features.

Karly Chambers made redecorating one part of her garden a family affair, with her children helping her paint pallets in bright colours to make a fence and hanging decorations across it.

The ornaments now taking pride of place include a pig relaxing over a barrel, several houses and castles for various toys arranged over the bark, and a hand-painted fairy door on a wizened tree stump.

Other people have showed off their outdoor seating areas, perfect if they need to take cover during a rain shower this weekend.

Claire Rycraft has wooden torches around her blue-and-pink decking, which could be used for a socially distanced cup of tea now some lockdown measures have been relaxed.

And Paul Martin has floor lights fitted around the edge of the decking in his garden, giving his green space a cool blue hue.
