I call this trellis 'The Sun Worshipper' because it looks like a figure who is looking up to the sky with her arms raised as if to say "Please sun god, make this garden thrive, pleeeeeeeeeease".
This trellis is made with much thinner branches than the flower wreath trellis. I wired each intersections instead of using screws.
Once my basic grid was done, I cut the top centre branches to fit in a wreath for the head.
To hide the shiny wire at the intersections, I used garden twine and I added a few more branches on each side of the wreath for the arms. (In this shot, the shadows are creating this abstract, cyclops version of Munch's 'The Scream')
I then planted two stakes in the ground to affix the trellis in place. My snow peas will have plenty to grab onto. I imagine that at some point, my sun worshipper will be sporting a full-length green gown with little white flowers - if the sun god answers her prayers.
Enough with the backyard. Now for some enbellishment at the front.
Fiesta petunias for the hanging baskets...
...and the urn.
A little voice with a French accent keeps nagging me to get back to my windows.
