My New Trellis This is a picture of my new trellis. I wanted a place to grow some Morning Glories on my craft cottage porch. So I asked my sweet husband to build me a trellis with some lattice, he had laying around. While I was standing outside telling him what I wanted, my eyes wondered over to this little gate. He had just helped my sons knock down this little fenced in area at their apartment and this little gate was sitting there waiting to be hauled off to the burn pile. No way I was going to let them burn this little jewel, it would be perfect for my porch. I had vision!!!!! So he added the little gate to my trellis. Then I had him add some chicken wire, so I could hang decorations from it. He had added the wire before I painted it so the chicken wire ended up with white paint on it, so it doesn't show up in the pictures. I've started putting stuff on it, but it still needs more. That's part of the fun looking for things to decorate it with. I think it makes my little porch cozy. Today my friend and I sat out there watching the birds and enjoying the nice weather. Now I can't wait for it to fill up with pretty Morning Glories growing all over it!!!
My friend Ruth gave me this nest and eggs( they were abandoned). She thought they would look pretty in my craft cottage. I put them out on my new trellis for now, but I will take them back inside, before it gets too hot here in Texas. Which could be an hour from now, next week or in a month? In Texas you never know for sure.
