    Nice job on the garden. Fruit trees in such a small space would be perfect for espalier.

    Your garden path is excellent! I especially love the arbor. You mention that it came from a kit and you made it yourself…care to share where you got it and how much it was? (I’m on the east coast.) I have been gathering garden path photos for a while and love your arbor, so any details would be much appreciated. We are hoping to renovate our house sometime before this winter, and a charming garden path would be a nice retreat from the construction mess we know is coming…!

    Thanks muchly and keep up the good work =)

    Leah,

    Hi! We have really enjoyed having a quiet spot during all these months of restoration. In California we can be outside year round and having the garden has been a great stress relief.

    I purchased the arbor from The Cedar Shoppe (http://www.cedarshoppe.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=20). It looks like the price went up a little from $122 last summer. We attached metal stakes or spikes to the bottom of the arbor and stuck those in the ground to stabalize the structure (that didn’t come with the kit).

    Best of luck with your restoration !

    Heather and David,

    The garden is beautiful. I didn’t even remember what it looked like until I saw the pictures. You are so artistic and creative. You must love what you are doing.

    What are those climbing flowers in your Flickr set? I’d love to have some for my trellis.
