#trellis #clematis #handmadetrellis there is a story about this trellis that I'm sure lots of you know but for the ones that don't: here is a sad little tale of woe! ☹️ Some years back we were visiting with friends on our back patio and have a straight clear view of the trellis (at the time a vine was not covering it) there was a conversation about vines and trellises and the friend said where is yours and I pointed out this one and she said " oh you mean the bed springs"? I felt so let down! I
It is lovely Shelley. I do not see bedsprings at all. I do get it though because my mind works like that. So glad you featured this so we can enjoy your handiwork. Whatever you may see I see a beautifully crafted trellis. 😍😍😍
@sieveheadsarah Thank you Sarah! Yes we did make it out of copper pipe and copper refrigerator tubing, I was so thrilled and thought I was so brilliant with the tools and things I used to make the round shapes and such, then one day we have friends visiting and she says to me did you use an old bed spring for a trellis?😲 So now I can't look at it and not think it looks like that!😂😂😂💘😍
Ha ha, old bed springs, it doesn't look anything like old bed springs, it's fabulous. I got my OH to make me a thing (😂) to grow a climber up from copper pipes and I used thick string to go around it, that just rots, now I'll be on the lookout for copper refrigerator tubing to use instead!!!
