I really, really wanted a rose covered arbor! Actually, I wanted an entire walkway of rose covered arbors! But an entire walkway seemed a bit unfeasible, even in my dreams.
Still, I was determined to have at least one rose covered arbor. Somewhere! Surely I could figure out where to put just one! So, I began to plan.
And a couple of years ago, I received an arbor as a present. (Thanks, honey!) My plans were big. Make that, my plans were BIG! Too big. Way too big. Too labor intensive. And too expensive.
I just hate budgets! :(
So, the arbor lay in pieces in the grass. Just a pile of rusting metal. Not at all the beauty I had envisioned.
I needed a new plan. After all, I already had the arbor!
|As a bonus, I learned how to pour concrete footings!|
And this week it happened. Ta-dah! The arbor has been set up. At last!
One day it will be covered in roses. And when you go through it, you will see the gazebo. Which will also be covered in roses.
Yes, I'm still dreaming, but at least one part of the sequence has been achieved.
(And if you're wondering, no, the catenary bed is still not finished! Yes, I'm slow. I'm a dreamer!)
