Tuesday Garden Party

Since we got our new fences earlier this year, we've been spending a lot of time working in the yard. Last weekend, The Mr built some gorgeous trellises for our purple trumpet vines.

We couldn't find the right size trellis for the area of fence where we wanted to put them, so The Mr made his own design and built them.

I'm pretty lucky to have him!

Here's what the flowers look like - beautiful!

Here's the start. In a month or so, when they've grown, I'll put before/after pictures up.

Looking forward to lots of flowers. The hummingbirds will love it!

Check out An Oregon Cottage for her new weekly Garden Party.

  1. Just stopping by from Tuesday garden party. your trumpet vines look beautiful! Happy gardening!

  2. WOW! That is going to look SO GOOD! Can't wait to see the pictures in a month!

  3. I've never seen a purple trumpet vine- only yellow and orange. Are they tropical, or would they work in my area where lows are usually in the 20s? I'd sure love one!

    Thanks for participating in the Tuesday Garden Party!

  4. Gorgeous!!! Can't wait to see when they fill out the trellis!!
