Absolutely beautiful! That would be my dream arbor for sure! Have a great Labour Day!
Pathway to Eden. Love it.
LOVE it! (Want one – in my next life, when I have a bigger yard…) Thanks for sharing the image, for my virtual perfect gardens.) Happy Labor Day! –Shyrlene
Dear Sandra, Whilst I do agree that this pergola is elegant, I always think that such structures only really succeed when they connect to something – the house, a conservatory, etc. – at either end. Without such a link they appear, to my mind, to somewhat float; that I find a little distracting in a garden.
I do hope that you have enjoyed a labour free Labour Day.
Edith, while these structures are lovely connected to a house or conservatory, I also like them as THE structure. If they are properly placed, and anchored with plants, it should not appear to ‘float’.
For example as an entrance to a garden room set into a hedge. I have such a place at the entrance to the potager on one side; and the fruitery on the other. In our Georgia climate it would be a very welcome shaded walkway.
Edith, I laboured all Labour Day!
so beautiful! Where is this? I have a picture of a beautiful arbor from a farm in middleburg, VA I went to this weekend for a wedding that I’ll send to you.
Your dream arbour is now my dream arbour.
Happy Labour Day, glad to see you still spell it with a U.
