New Garden Structure

We have wonderful full southern exposure in our back yard. As sun lovers, especially during the winter months, we really enjoy this aspect of our property.

Now, in the summer, it can get rather hot - too hot with the concrete patio - so the hubby designed & built a structure that will provide shade as the sun moves across the sky.

We may put up some extra shade material on the top during the high heat summer days and we have a lovely clematis (Vancouver Sea Breeze) to plant at the post by the bbq.

I'm going to stick some bamboo stakes by the other post & grow Scarlet runner beans or maybe sweet peas up. There are some stock & dianthus plants, as well as some scented geraniums & I even found some strawberries growing in a corner of the yard.

We are looking forward to watching the birds & insects come to the colourful & fragrant flowers just as we are looking forward to enjoying quiet moments out in the back.
