I apparently had a dormant gene, it was pronounced in my mom but took a bit to come to the surface in myself. I’m a gardener.
And come to find out, a fanatical one at that.
As I lay in bed last night looking at Pinterest (is this something people still do?), I came across a website that has construction plans you can print out, then build your own garden trellises.
I was amazed. It was amazing.
The next day, when I went to Home Depot to buy the 32 pieces of various sized, but exact in measurement, cedar plank to build this amazing trellis, I found out something else even more amazing.
Home Depot sells trellises. Already made.
Thank you Jesus.
I went about remodeling a back wall that can see into our neighbors back yard. And while it’s cool they have a pool and all (jealous? yes.), I don’t want to see it. So I decided on Confederate Jasmine from Urban Roots, a vigorous and prolific climbing vine, to put on my new, already made trellises.
I’m sure my rear neighbors will appreciate it when it starts taking over their yard as well. But having a gorgeous back wall of jasmine or making new neighbor friends?
Jasmine. Every time.
