A marvellous garden office makeover video by Jenny Kakoudakis with step-by-step descriptions at her Seasons in Colour site. Here's what she says: This is a place where you can get really creative (so many sheds are used as artist studios), play or simply relax. It could be your reading nook, a yoga studio, it can even be a guest room (mine definitely fits a single bed nicely and it comes with electricity supply so you can have an electric heater in it). Whatever you want it to be, you are only limited by your imagination. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Thursday posts are sponsored by Cabin Master : garden offices and studios to fit any size garden.

Parisian architecture studio Antonin Ziegler converted an abandoned barn into a metal-clad home crafted to evoke a “contemporary ruin.” Located in France’s Regional Natural Park of Boucles de la Seine, the adaptive reuse project, called The Barn, sits between a wheat field and river and was formerly used to store fodder for horses. With the barn’s weatherboarding worn away, the architects encased the timber structure in a new shell of zinc to preserve the building’s monolithic...

He may not make the coziest of bedfellows, but if a northern white rhino pops up on your Tinder screen, it might behoove you to swipe right. Dubbed by wildlife experts as the "world's most eligible bachelor," 43-year-old Sudan is the sole remaining male of his kind. "I don't mean to be too forward, but the fate of the species literally depends on me," the rhino's profile reads on the dating app. "I perform well under pressure." Sudan isn't looking to make a love connection, however....

For years, scientists have believed that humanity was a relatively recent visitor on the North American continent, migrating from Siberia only 15,000 years ago. Now, more accurate dating of mastodon fossils from California shows that an early human ancestor likely existed on the continent 130,000 years ago, far further back that even the most extreme estimates made by previous researchers. https://youtu.be/HyfSsgCrjb0 The fossils consist of elephant-like teeth and bones, which were...

Wolves are no longer on the endangered species list and a court decision just gave wolf management back to the state of Wyoming. This means for the first time in four years, according to the Associated Press, Wyoming plans to allow a wolf hunt.
