  • My Pergola and gardens, This is the pergola that I made for my mother, Lela Marie, who loved flowers and gardening.  I am 63 and I built this pergola by myself and it was not a kit.  I built  and designed it as I went along.  I built it from presure treated lumber and painted it to match my home.  My husband told me not to build it but at 63 I don't think anyone should tell you what you can and cannot do so I went outside and started digging holes for my post and my husband came outside and ask me what I was doing and I told him that I was going to build the pergola that he told me not to build.  He made no comment but he likes it now.  I wired the lanterns for electricity and put lights around the bottom edge under the wood of the pergola and it looks great at night.  I built the picket fence three years ago when I started my garden.  My sisters all came up to see me in Elgin, IL. from Indiana the first week of August.  The mirrors in the pergola reflect the flowers, blue water fountain and window boxes on the othe side of the pergola. The watering can fountain looks like it is really watering the flowers. There is a sign at the other end of the pergola that reads:  "Just Another Day In Paradise". That is just how I feel.  My flag picture is to show that I am proud to be an American and to show respect for all those that have fought for our freedom.  I hope you like my work and may everyone have a great year., Gardens Design

  • English Cottage Garden in Utah!, When I fulfilled a lifetime dream of traveling to England, I was enchanted by their  cottage gardens.   They were so lovely and informal - with herbs and vegetable all mixed in together.  Another clever idea was they were frequently located in the front entry, instead of grass!    I now have a English Cottage Garden as I walk up to my front door.   Who would have guessed I could bring a little of England home with me?., Gardens Design

  • My patio and gardens, I created this patio out of an empty yard.  I laid the patio blocks and surrounded the patio with plants and a picket fence.  I added a mirror to the side of the porch and a shelf below it.  The sign above the mirror says:  "Just Another Day in Paradise".  On the opposite is a self-made chandeliar that I made out of turning a lamp upside down and adding crystals.  Below it is a large blue vase water fountain.  There is a mirror pedistal that lights up on top and the whole thing is beautiful at night.  The patio is kind of secluded under a tree and it over looks the gardens in the back.  The door to the gardens is made from an old metal window where I added a filigree to the top to make it look more like a door.  The new garden has picket fences and a bird house on a pole which I made.  I, also, made the window boxes on the house and garage.  There is a trellis in the back yard that I made for my vines and I made a bench by my back door that I painted Blurple.  I am not finished yet since I have only been working on my garden for two summers.  It is a passion and I have been doing my own carpentry work for three years.  I hope you enjoy my gardens, Gardens Design
