INSPIRATION THURSDAY, RUSTIC ARBOR

Rustic Arbor, photo courtesy of Fox Hollow gardens
I'm not even sure what this is but when I saw it, I decided that someday, I want one!  I believe it's an arbor, made of found wood branches.  I can imagine relaxing under it after a long day, or just sitting and reading a book on a cool afternoon.  I love how it's kind of hidden amongst the greenery.

I wouldn't even know where to begin to make something like this, but that's why I post these photos every Thursday, to share something I see that inspires me to want to someday do something like it on the farm.  This blog and my inspiration posts are like my own "Pinterest", LOL.

Enjoy your day, we are finally enjoying a sunny day after several days of gloomy, rainy weather.

Is that where the hennessey Hammock is going?

I have clipped similar photos and now I have the wood but not the know how. Dan did make the tuteur for me for the clematis to grow on but I would like to build something bigger someday.

It does look dreamy and cool, perfect for reading & napping. Until the bugs come out and devour me! Still, pretty to look at:)

Hmmm, off to google 'hennessey hammock", ha. But sounds like a great idea to me.

That's right, you probably have lots of great wood around your beautiful property. Maybe someday we'll be building one at the same time online, ha.

I know! I'm not even sure where it is, the person who posted the photo didn't give directions or location, just said that's where it was as someone was trying to identify it. It's probably one of those places with a "don't sit on the chairs" sign, ha.
