My Dad Is a Genius

My mom has been wanting an arbor with a swing in her herb garden for awhile now.
This past mother's day, dad decided to build one for her.
Now here is why my dad is a genius. He didn't have a pattern. All he had was pictures from the internet.

Check it out:

That's not the complete thing, of course. 

Here it is:

Is that not awesome!! 
All from scratch. Including the swing. 

And since you might be curious, I'll post pictures of the rest of my mom's herb garden. 

This is the pond that us kids helped daddy dig out, and build. Mom's wanted one of those for a while too. That was fun making. Especially lugging all of those rocks from the creek. :D

We decided to ditch the water fountain and make it into a pretty flower fountain. 

Here's the entire scope of the garden. That bare patch in the front is being reserved for strawberry plants

And last, but not least, a better shot of the arbor. 

I love sitting out here with a book and a cup of tea, or coffee. It's so peaceful. 

I know this was a bit late in posting, but dad hadn't quite finished the arbor yet. 
I can't wait to post the father's day gift that mom is making for dad! 

Ta ta, for now!

  2. That is absolutely glorious. *stares in awe* I love it.

  3. Haha, yeah, My dad is a genius too... ^_^ Haha, but we won't go into arguing over who's is more the genius...because it wouldn't be fair... ^_^ haha...OH<3 I love my daddy.... ^+^

  4. BeaUtiful! I'd love a place like that! Daniel (my master carpenter who I would argue is the best!<3) has spent the morning building a fence around my "garden" (more of a weed patch). Maybe now that the dogs can't get in I'll take more care of it....hopefully:-P the fence looks great, at least, even if the contents...uh..are a bit...weedy.

    1. LOVE your new background BTW! Makes me think of u:)

    2. Oh, that' awesome!!! Yes, making your garden look pretty helps to make you want to make it pretty! :D

  6. Whoa THAT'S amazing! It was already amazing when you were just Telling me about it :)

    1. Haha! Yes!
      Just wait until you get to see it in real life! :D

  7. I like those pictures, and the garden layout is very sightly :-)
    Ps. If you are going to plant strawberries, we found that strawberries thrive when garlic is planted in there midst :-)
