Garden Arbors

                                                               I was going through some of our
                                                               summer garden photos today and
                                                               I thought you might enjoy seeing
                                                               the arbors in our garden.

                                                               My husband built this arbor and fence in
                                                               over 20 years ago.
                                                              Actually, he built all of our wooden fences
                                                              and arbors with some help from one of our sons.
                                                                 Love this Constance Spry rose with the
                                                                 blue and the white clematis.
                                                                 This arbor leads into Martha's Garden.

                                                                       Nelly Noser clematis on the left.
                                                              The old arbor that was here for over
                                                              20 years was replaced last year with
                                                              a new one that matches the one on the
                                                              other side of this garden room.It will
                                                              age to gray in a year or two.

                                                               The arbor and long border at the road.
                                                                There is an arbor at either end of our allee

                                                                The arbor at the south of our home.
                                                      The arbor above leads into the small
                                                                 enclosed garden by the cottage.

                                                                  Well, needless to say I am looking
                                                                   forward to the return of our garden.
                                                                  We have spotted robins in the garden
                                                                  again and I heard the Canada geese fly
                                                                  over ~ two signs of spring here on the

                                                                  I am joining The Charm of Home today
                                                                  for Home Sweet Home.

                                                                                   Thank you for visiting,





Olá Carolyn, espero que esteja tudo bem. Me lembro com detalhe cada caramanchão e a beleza de seu jardim. Estamos alegres em estar na nova casa. Meu jardim é pequeno, mas o suficiente para que eu tenha algumas flores e acabei de ganhar um balanço de meu marido. Adorei. Um bom final de semana e torcendo para a primavera chegar logo na ilha para desfrutar de belas fotos.

Hi Carolyn,
What do you have a beautiful garden!
What I like is to walk around or sit for a while!
Have greatly enjoyed your photos!

With love, Gerry

Your work is always so stunning. It is amazing what you can do in a relatively short growing season. I'm in zone 5 and cannot achieve anything close to that kind of splendor. Absolutely beautiful.

Your arbors are each so beautiful. I have one in my garden and it is truly my favorite piece in the garden. You have so many pretty arbors and how special that your husband and sons made them!
