The bare area is the new arbor Steve built, I got another 'red' clematis to plant. All of them I have gottn so far (3) were supposed to be red. When they got big enough and bloomed, they were jackmani and purple, all 3. So I hope this one is truly red. It is planted on the right side of the new arbor.
I took pictuers of the new metal thing that we hung on the garage, our local nursery has some truly neat things out there for sale like this. I also got a pretty tall trellis to put my other clematis on, it was too tall for the old one. Let's see how it works.
Jen, I need a metal chair from Garden Ridge to go next to our metal talbes and the other metal chair and we will be all set. We also have the fountain in, courtesy of all my sisters (x4) and one sis in law. She (sis in law) should be getting home tonight from Washington, DC. Tabor schools take a class there every year for educational purposes. I think that is the neatest thing!!!
