Growing local

For my climbing plants: old umbrella insert salvaged from my Dad's pool brolly / half a garden arch / sticks from an old gum tree destined for council cleanup. Am feeling very zen right now. And just a little bit smug.

Smug away! - it looks wonderful :)

The old umbrella frame is a beauty isn't it - perfect for this purpose. Don't you just love the raised beds - so easy to keep it all neat and tidy.

I'd be feeling a tad smug, too ;-)
