Hubby made this for me last week from scratch. It isn't the gazebo we had originally planned but I think I love this so much more.. it sits in the middle of the circle.. I will make leaf stepping stones from the patio out to it and hubby will make a small entrance arbor at the entrance to the circle..

thank you...

I have already planted wisteria.. a white climbing up one side and a purple climbing the other side. As our sun is so fierce and this is in full sun I thought that the wisteria would provide great shade.

It's it beautiful on it's own, but I can't wait to see it dripping with wisteria blooms. My hubby was just admiring a friends canopy swing (bought from Canadian Tire), but maybe I can talk him into building me a similar type frame like yours but instead of benches on either end, we would build a wooden bench swing inside. We could kill two birds with the one stone. He would get his swing and I would have place for more clematis to grow. Thanks for the idea.

Oh I really like that. Your DH sounds like mine - he made my arbour for me too. I'm waiting for a pergola but I may change my mind and get him to copy this one. It looks so inviting! Lucky Lady you are!

thank you all. We are both so pleased with the way it turned out. I planted daylilies and white crinums in the bed on either end so that something is blooming when the wisteria is not

Beautiful! I have visions of a red comforter and the neighbor's purple sheets draped over the top to provide a break from the chilly winter nights. It'll be lovely. LOL

I think your beautiful new arbor deserves something more than just what you have on the bottom of the sheet pile or what your neighbor might put out. I think you should go shopping now for something with a little more flash and dazzle and a very high thread count. Perhaps Restoration Hardware?
