Today's project was really just part of a project, or part of several. Mark and I are having our first big party in years in a couple of weeks (a shindig for Mark's co-workers, so there's an added element of pressure). Today, we started a few project we've been talking about for a while, to get ready for it. That meant the day was full of shopping, painting, putting together, etc. But nothing is actually done yet, and I don't want to show you the results until they're complete, so I'm going to just give you a bit of a tease in pictures.
One thing we did complete, which I can show you, is the re-trellising of the out-of-control passion flowers we have on our front porch. Just a few weeks ago they fit easily on their original plastic stakes, but they've grown so much we had to figure out another solution. Think this will work?
