My beautiful arbor was a gift from the husband. It makes me so happy! The garden really is starting to look the way I want it to out there. I got two Henryi Clematis plants and we have dug into our rocky soil to put them in. They were not happy in pots, but now that they are in the soil they seem to be doing really well.
The two large planters were also gifts from the husband. Ie: we were walking through Costco and he said “Hey, those would be great next to your arbor.” and he was absolutely right! They are beautiful!
Now that the plants are big enough, I have been letting the chickens out more and more. We have even gotten a new-to-us coop that I am remodeling for them. (Can be seen in the far top right in the first picture.)
They have enjoyed their new found freedom and have dug up many bugs and slugs to eat around the garden beds… with only a few casualties to my seedlings (my beets mostly).
Farmgirl happiness…. right here in the city!
