This year I sowed some seeds which I have been baby-ing for several weeks, and my sweet peas have been begging me to plant them somewhere they can start climbing. So the other day I wandered around my garage and shed brainstorming ways I could make some kind of climbing apparatus.
And this is what I came up with, the improv trellis:
I found some straight-ish branches on some trees and stuck them in my pot.
And I took some twine and secured them together. I kind of felt like a girl scout.
Then I planted some colorful annuals in the center. They should get quite a bit bigger.
Then I wrapped my sweet peas into their new home. They are purple.
I think this is such a cheerful arrangement – it just makes me happy. And I can’t wait until there are purple blossoms wound up all over the sticks!
