Inspiration

August 14th, 2008

While reading a book a while back I came across this photo.

I love the sapling fence! I can’t imagine how much work it is to cut all those saplings to the proper length and attach them. This would be a good fencing option for my garden. I have an ample supply of saplings around so it would be inexpensive. But would it be worth the time and energy to cut them all? I’m not sure.

Inspiration: Trumpet Vine

July 28th, 2008

I’ve been thinking about training a trumpet vine up the electric pole that at the front right corner of our lot. I already have one growing on the light post back by our garage, so I was going to try to propagate it. This past Friday I dropped my niece off at a friend’s house to swim and I saw this. Just what I was hoping to do. Granted, it will take a long time for mine to look like this, but I want to get it started right away so it will look like this soon!

Oh yeah, here are my two nieces swimming in the pond (aren’t they cute).
