It started with the above picture.
Jim brought home a couple of these plant pallets.
They were pretty cute as is, but have you known us to take the easy way on things?
Those plant pallets were turned into TWO pallet planters!
We filled them with bricks (about halfway) before we added the soil.
We got them positioned. Then we had another idea (imagine!)
Why not connect them and give this part of the yard a feel all its own??
Yep!!! An arbor/trellis...made from pallets!!!
(I'm pretty lucky he loves me right?)
Putting the pieces on the top.
Do you like the telephone pole looking thing?
This reminds me that I don't think I have shared it with you. :(
Sitting in, looking out.
On the "outside" looking in!
It really does give the patio/fire pit area the feeling that it is its own room!!!!
Pretty neat looking and all the wood was FREE!!!!
This picture is a few weeks old.
In the planters we planted pole beans and bush beans.
The pole beans are now as tall as the first 'step'
The birds have let us know they approve!!!
I think it needs a sign hanging in the middle of the arbor. That may be a rainy day or a winter time project though. The tomatoes are starting to turn red so we will soon be busy canning away! We will have to remember to take time to sit and enjoy our 'new room.'
I wish those of you that are my bloggy friends lived closer so we could sit out back and catch up!
