garden arch progession....

About 8 months ago, I decided to put up an arch along with some climbing roses along my fence line. You can read the original post here with all my inspiration photos. Well here is what it looks like today. With winter just round the corner I don't think it will get any better than this until next spring.

Here is a reminder of what it looked like then...

   I put crushed rock at the back and and 3 square stepping stones towards the front.

as you can see the little dianthus on the RHS with the pink dainty flowers are not as big as the one on the LHS. That's because I stuffed up and bought only 1 plant and tried to divide it into 2. Ofcourse it didn't work and the one on the RHS originally died so then I had to wait till the other one grew big enough for me to take a couple of pieces for me to replant. Yeah, I do that a lot buying one plant and dividing it into 2. Doesn't always work. 

I'm afraid the pictures don't really bring out how pretty this area is, my camera is not the best. I have planted lavender and dianthus with tiny pink flowers either side, Piere de Ronsard over the arch and another little pink rose in the pots. Towards the back on the RHS I planted some lilac colored iris. I love this little section of the garden and enjoy seeing it every time I hang up the clothes!
Bye for now, take care,

Oh I would just LOVE to have something like that in my backyard! I did have an arbor with a flowering vine on it for years, but a snow storm knocked it down this past Winter. So, I don't have it anymore. I love how you placed a bench under it and some pavers. So inviting! Love the flowers you've planted as well. They're all my favorites.
