Have to give my husband credit for this one. He fashioned this work of art (truly) from locust and mountain laurel. I've started some fragrant vines on each end, can't wait to see it in full bloom!

Love it! Next week we're making a trip to where some friends are logging. Can't wait to see what treasures I can find this time. Need to keep an eye out for mountain laurel. It has such nice structure to it. I have lots of beautiful pieces of wood I have collected. My logger friend even drug one long (10-12 ft) old dead cedar tree out for us. It had been dead so long, all the sap wood was gone, just a smooth (no nobby limb pieces) thin center with wonderful short root pieces sticking out. It was very heavy even at this point. We stuck it in the ground upside down so I can run vines up it. I planted morning glory and other things around it but it hasn't taken off yet. The first thing that happened after I put edging and potting soil around it and planted it, a darn armadillo dug it all up. Thinking about if I could find some miniature gazing balls, nestling several among the roots sticking out 9 or so feet up.

Gingerlily-If you have a camera we expect PICTURES, you can't get away with just a description. I don't think Dave would allow it. :o)
