Last year we planted 12 blackberry plants. I mentioned to Paul that eventually I'd like a little arbor over them so the branches would be off the ground. The next day he had put this up. I wasn't successful in my effort to take pictures of the entire thing. It's about 50 feet long. Isn't it great?!?
The next project was to finally paint the swing set we inherited with the house. Grandpa Mac and the boys fixed it up last summer but it was still ugly. It isn't very imaginative but at least it looks finished and I am happy when I look outside. We also painted the chicken coop, we've been meaning to get to that for a long time too. It feels so good to have these projects completed! Here are the befores and afters.
