When I saw this, I knew I had to ask if I could share it with you all it is from the blog Scravings and Eileen’s husband built this, she said this: “Incidentally, for the first seven years we were married, he didn’t even own a hammer! He’s actually a dentist and after a long day of drilling on tiny little spaces, he’s found the perfect way to relax is to build big things!” Lucky Girl, I’d start buying some more tools and making big honey-do lists!
How Lyle spent his Saturday….
….finishing the wisteria walkway.
No matter how many times I’ve said, “This is the coolest thing you’ve ever built,”
he manages to top it.
And so really, this time I’m sure. This is absolutely the coolest thing he’s ever built.
These pictures are just a sneak peek. Without the vines, it looks naked.
Over on the front porch, the Autumn Sunset climbing rose is blooming early.
It’s Rose’s rose and always blooms for her birthday in June.
This year it’s hitting its peak in May.
Over on the dining trellis, we have our very first blooms on the Cecile Brunner climber.
Baby doll pink is usually last on my list of color choices, but I’ll admit that these are the most adorable little flowers I’ve ever seen.
The wood on this trellis is also cedar, built just one year ago.
We’ve let it weather naturally and I love the muted gray color.
It doesn’t fight with the white colored house and lets the vines take center stage.
We’ll do the same thing with the wisteria walkway.
The thought of painting that beast makes my arm tired.
Don’t you think it is totally lovely?
I would love to have something like that in my backyard!
