I came across this charming shelter at just the moment I needed a rest and to get out of the wind.

  1. Great photos, I like the pylon feet. It hardly matters but just fyi your ‘daisies’ are probably Corn Chamomile Anthemis arvensis (but could be Stinking Chamomile or Scentless Mayweed, depending on smell 😉 ) Never tried solid fuel stoves, now may have to having seen yours. Thanks for taking the trouble to post these quietly thought-provoking images.

    • You’re right, I think it is Corn Chamomile as the petals have their distinctive shape, I’ve updated the caption. Glad you like the pylon feet, my favourite from that day but I like pylons! Solid fuel has a few disadvantages, messy, slower (8 mins to boil) and can be hard to light but it is the lightest way for a small setup like this.

Whether you have comments on the photos, some knowledge or a personal story on this area you’d like to share, or you’ve spotted a typo or error, I’d love to hear your thoughts.
