It's Outdoor Wednesday again! Time just flies by doesn't it? Our host for Outdoor Wednesday is Susan over at A Southern Daydreamer. You'll find many, many more bloggers who have ventured outdoors in search of something!
Our ongoing project, which may be the project that never ends, is still not completed. It is built and the front has been primed.
The back? Not so much.
We still have to
1. Finish Priming
2. Paint - front and back
3. Prepare flower beds in front of the house and in front of the picket fence.
4. Plant climbing roses and a vine - maybe clematis - on the arbor.
5. Build a stone sidewalk from the side steps through the arbor gate.
If you missed my earlier story, I have been wanting an arbor forever. My beautiful niece had engagement pictures made last summer. When I saw the following picture, I knew I had found the arbor I wanted.
It took us a while but we finally went to Ruston, LA and measured the arbor, took numerous pictures and worked in a little antiquing along the way.
Mr. Dumpling built the arbor and I think he did an excellent job! Notice my chair. Every job needs a Supervisor so that's the Supervisor chair.
More pics as we get the flower beds completed.
These two pictures just take my breath away. I wonder how long it takes to accomplish this look?
Now I need your help. Any suggestions for roses, vines, etc., which would do well in the sun over an arbor?
