It’s seriously go time in the garden, friends. I recently mentioned that Hubs was whipping up a deck and pergola for us to enjoy out there. And, boy, did he ever! Never one to make something just so-so, or expected, or conventional, he fashioned a pergola to beat them all, full of whimsy and nuance and, well, “him.”
We held our first photo shoot for the new book out there. Broke it in, so to speak. It’s festooned with lovely hanging flower baskets right now. In time, though, we intend to grow food on it. Grapes, most likely. Muscadines and Scuppernogs (both native to the area), specifically.
I just adore it. Being out there, with a cold, frosty beer on a warm summer evening, or in the morning with a cup of hot coffee in hand and my lap top in front of me as the little guy plays next to me in the sandbox-not much beats it.
In the video below, Hubs himself walks you through a tour of our garden. Enjoy it (and his low, handsome voice; ’twas one of the first things that attracted me to him!)!!!
