My Arbour


My Arbour

I've only had this since October last year....finally getting round to the finishing touches on the sunny side of the garden.
You can't see in the picture but behind the little raised wall evergreen shrubs which will grow up and provide privacy from behind

Thank you Maggie...I see you are at home :)
Poppyfield...yes cuprinol Holly - I must say I am NOT impressed with it at all! This was bare wood - bone dry - when I painted this with 3 coats in Sept/Oct and it's already started to peel!! I wouldn't have minded if it had been used but no one had sat upon it until yesterday - am really hacked of with the paint!! (Sorry to rant :)) Yes it is a great wee arbour - it's for my mum really - the sun is gone from here by 4.30 and she likes to sit outside with a cuppa after her dinner!

thanks Paul.
I know when I was clearing my dad's stuff it was a strange feeling - unlike you I didn't have a great relationship with my dad but it was still weird - I can't imagine how you are feeling Pixi - I'm sure you will find a place for everything special Pixi x
