Another trellis I made was a little more elaborate. It also has Sweet Peas to grow up it. As you can see it is near the Casa (screen house) so hopefully we will be able to see and smell these.
My design for this one was inspired by Robyn Gordon, at Art Propelled, who is an artist that carves totems. Her work is absolutely marvelous to me. She uses found objects in her work. So you can see that I have used some RR spikes for the top of the trellis. When this is no longer needed as a trellis I am going to make this a wall where I can place found objects like in this picture I tore out of a magazine 2 years ago. I hope to have a wall of 'stuff' at some point.
Another project I have done was lining part of the path that goes to a side gate with concrete that my DB busted out of the patio area.
I like that we didn't have to take it to the dump and it serves a needed purpose here by keeping the pea gravel in the pathway. When the flowers all fill out you won't see much of it either.
It seems that eveyone is talking about the explosion of blooms
and then of course the foliage that then will take center stage.
Even Lincoln seems a bit surprised at the way the ivy seems to want to overtake him. I will evenually have to get out there and rescue him.
Do you have any frivolous foliage or any garden projects keeping you in the garden longer than usual?
