Much Better!

Just a quick post; I'm pooped after working in the greenhouse all day.

My arbor just wasn't right. I have a million gardening books and do you think I looked at one of them before building my arbor? No. I just started sawing and screwing together. I knew it didn't look right so as soon as I got home this evening, I let the dogs out and went right to work making changes. I am much happier with it now and can't wait to paint and decorate it. I still have the side trellis part to make but that won't take long at all. And I haven't spaced and bolted the top pieces yet either; that will wait till tomorrow....or the next day.

I probably won't be able to move tomorrow after taking down about 200 fern plants, weeding and sorting and then hanging them back up again. There was a lot of reaching as far as I could involved! I'm headed for bed - nighty night everybody!

Cool arbor! Won't that be lovely with climbing vines of flowers! And YOU built it - I am impressed!! My husband built us a pergola last year and I am so hoping all the Wisteria and climbing roses reach the top this year!

You did this yourself, Phyllis? You use POWER TOOLS?! You go, girl! About the only power tools I'll use are drills and sanders. I stay completely away from anything that cuts off fingers! ;-)

You're right...that was a really great change you made! It's going to be worth all the effort...but I sure hope you're not too sore tomorrow!
