Beehive Wednesday…

Our little corner of the world was a beehive of activity today.  Scott was here painting bathroom #2, R was at the computer, me packing the show up…

and Bill putting in a new trellis to, number one…support a clematis with a fierce will to live, and, number two to hide the view of the garbage cans from the street.  Before we had to cut it down (it was ripping the house apart…ahem) it looked like this…


and then (when I was away thankfully)  R cut it down…and we kind of thought it was a goner…

clematis after

but no…it wants to live…

trellis 2

so Bill came and fixed up a trellis for it…because we are now STRICTLY adhering to this rule…NO plants on the architecture (thanks Howard).


It’s always great to have Bill in the garden…he did all of our “hard-scaping” (such as it is)…

and he knows plants…he would NEVER pull out a baby nicotiana or foxglove, thinking it was a weed…


and he grows wonderful vegetables and brings some when he comes to build us something…like yesterday when he brought these…

dinner 1
