Seasons #5 – Lemons to Lemonade—Again
When I began this blog again, one of my earlier posts was entitled Lemons to Lemonade. I talked about an unavoidable situation that we were able to turn into something special. This is another unhappy situation that we have been faced with. The arbor in our front yard is about 20 years old and beginning to deteriorate. We know it needs to come down but we wanted to save part of it. The corner posts are warped and rotted on the bottom, but the lattice, hand made by my hubby, is still in good shape. As I mentioned in another earlier post, we recently lost our leyland cypress trees due to a disease. Not only did these trees offer shade and privacy to our back yard and back porch, but they also blocked a lot of the dust from mowing, all of which affected our ability to use our back porch. So we put our heads together to decide what to use the panels for, and came up with what we thought was a good use for them.
We went to Lowe’s looking for roses, and found both of these on sale. The red one is a climbing Don Juan, and the orange one is a Westerland rose. We aren’t exactly rosarians, so say a little prayer for these roses.
