Arch full of flowers

Our DIY Garden Arch is finally full of Morning Glory flowers! We’ve enjoyed watching the vines grow up the arch and rejoiced when we got our first pretty blue flowers. We’ve yet to spot any Moon Flowers, but we’re still hopeful.

Garden arch redesigned

After months of planning and several redesigns along the way, I finally got an archway up in our garden this evening. It’s still a project-in-progress, but I am so pleased with the development. I had to disassemble the lovely wooden trellis arch I created a couple of weeks ago, as it wasn’t flexible enough and…
