Looks like you have a helper building your trellis! I cant wait to see it get nice and full.Jenn
What a helper you have there! The blooming tree is gorgeous on the last picture!
Wow - look at your HUGE back yard! I'm jealous. Are those roses you're growing up your trellis?
Angela - Those are actually hardy hibiscus and lilies growing there, they will get going when it gets a little warmer. I am going to plant sweet pea vines to grow up the trellis. They grow from 6-10 ft and smell fantastic, so I needed something really tall for them to grow on. I thought it would be fun to make a zig zag wall kind of trellis. I can add string as they grow up. If the sweet peas give out in the summer heat, I can plant moonflower or some nasturtium or some malabar spinach on it.
Very ambitious! Is it hard to grow sweet peas? I think they're so pretty. Did your little helper help you willingly, or was he bribed? It must be warm by you, too. This weather has been crazy warm for April.I love the tree in that last picture. I have one that looks very similar in my front yard.
I looked and one of my sweet peas is a perennial, which is interesting,so I am not sure how long the blooms last. I hope a long time.
