So Sweet

One thing I really, really enjoy doing is making garden art from natural materials. We have quite a few large branches that broke off over the winter, and I’ve been using them to create some structures. My peas will be climbing up a teepee constructed from birch branches.

I also made a trellis to put in one of the front gardens. I didn’t realize how crooked it was until I put it in the ground, but that’s OK. I kind of like it like that. We’ll say that I was going for a more whimsical look ;).

What will be growing on this trellis? Sweet Pea vines, that’s what. I’ve never grown them before. They’re an early bloomer, and they supposedly smell wonderful. I put them right under the dining room window so that we can hopefully enjoy their scent. I think that any type of vining/climbing flower is a favorite of mine – I have five or six other varieties that I’ll be planting when the nights stop getting below freezing. Time to make more trellises and teepees!

  1. Very cool. I went through a phase where I made twig furniture. It was a lot of fun both collecting materials and actually twisting and contorting twigs into usable shapes.
