Arbor








This was last weekends project. I love doing these things but had the amount of time it takes. It pretty much took all weekend to do. Well there were a couple of breaks to let the concret base set up and go shopping for more plants. You have to have some priorties! As you can barely see in the one pic that this is where the uitilies come into the house. These means that Scott stood on the porch with the phone ready to call 911 in case I hit the electic line. This didn't happen as I had insured him it wouldn't. I was careful and just took thin layers of dirt and grass off the top and dug with a trowel for the holes. The rose I planted to vine over the arbor is CI Westerland. Here is a link to a picture of it http://www.heirloomroses.com/cgi/browse.cgi?page=item&cat=11&item=548 I hope it works out for me. I will keep you all posted

I looked at that rose, it will be beautiful. Think that would work on my arbor if I get tired of the lady banks? Jane

Jane - I don't know why it wouldn't. It seems to be black spot resistant. We will have to see how it does for us.
