After many visits here, my parents found inspiration in the rather odd looking grain elevators dotted around rural Saskatchewan. Just like this one:

We even came across one on the move, when researching them online:

(That has to be one  of my favourite ever Youtube clips!)

So, Dad being Dad, they are now trying to build one – an 18ft one, to be precise – in their garden. Here is their progress so far.

We may not have majestic mountains or panoramic views or follies or medieval architecture, but we have something inspirational, after all!
