A resident of Hamnavoe, in Burra, Shetland Anne Eunson decided to knit herself a beautiful lace fence using twine. The fence is fashioned from strong black twine - the same kind that is used to make fishing nets and Anne knitted it up on specially adapted curtain poles. It took her about three weeks to knit enough lace to surround her front garden, using a 23 stitch repeat of a familiar Shetland lace pattern.

There are documentary records of gardens in medieval castles, spaces within castle walls which must have been garden sites, but no medieval drawings or plans of castle gardens a few renaissance drawings of gardens made within castle walls. The best hope of discovering more about castle gardens is pollen analysis. Source: Gardenvisit.com Image: WyrdLight.com via Wikimedia Commons
