28 comments


The Rustic Arbour arrived a few days ago and today was a lovely day, so we decided to assemble and install it.

Here’s the area its going to go into before…..

And here it is in situ. Now we have somewhere to sit and enjoy the Golden Border! :)

Very picturesque, a focal point.

Wow, Karen! That's the icing on the cake. Absolutely beautiful. You have totally transformed that garden since you moved in. I wonder what the previous owners would think of it now...bet, they would love it. I do!

Thank you so much Michaella. I was just wondering about that today. Trouble is, the last owner really didn't want to leave, so I don't think he would want to see it....it would probably make him sad. :(

Now I'm wondering...how long will it be before that's covered with roses and clematis???

16 Oct, 2015

 

2 Clematis planted Stera! :))

looks great, it will look amazing with clematis over the top and around the sides. Lovely place to sit and view the garden from.

Came on here to have a better look karen, I really love it.

Thanks ladies! :))

The perfect setting for it, what clematis have you put in K?

It looks lovely!

Thanks DD..C. Flammula triternata rubromarginata on the one side, and C. Gypsy Queen on the other. But don't know if they will take as they were so sad and diminished and I moved them from elsewhere. Might have to replace them with new stock. But we'll see what happens next year!

Thanks Melchi!

Lovely! I thought you'd be quick, but not quite that quick Karen!

17 Oct, 2015

 

Oh, Karen that's just perfect! Surely you're garden must be just as you planned it now, you lucky girl :))

18 Oct, 2015

 

Pretty much Waddy, thank you! :) I'm absolutely chuffed to bits with it. :)

18 Oct, 2015

 

So you should be, now you can more or less sit back and enjoy it :)

18 Oct, 2015

 

lol...you are a real comedienne! :))

It looks good from every angle and the views you get from your new seat are a real joy.

18 Oct, 2015

 

Thanks Chris...and I've sat on it every morning so far!

I was just thinking the same as Michaella, It looks lovely from every angle.
You don't hang about, do you!

It looks great Karen ! We have this one as well, bought from B&Q's when we were at Willow Cottage. At the time, they were on offer , so bought two ! One has a curved top and the other one like yours! Still have them , but not such a long view and as beautiful as yours !
Enjoy sitting on it ! That is when you have the time from all these gardening jobs of yours ! lol

That's a lovely new feature ... your pond looks wonderful too!

19 Oct, 2015

 

GF, I am not known for sitting about thinking about things! lol!

Thanks Rose, glad you like it! Thanks Shirley, the pond is really pleasing. I think we did a good job! :)

19 Oct, 2015

 

Yes, it really does make a great feature. We have a couple of huge Frogs in our little pond, heard them making a lot of noise last night!

20 Oct, 2015

 

:)) lovely! No sign of froggy in pond yet, but they are about in the garden at night.

21 Oct, 2015

 

Very nice Karen....will it have something climbing up/over it in the future?

21 Oct, 2015

 

Definitely Paul!
