  1. Thanks for including Leo’s obelisks. We planted a cherry tomato vine under one of them, and I planted Major Wheeler’s honeysuckle under 2 of them. Unfortunately, they need some wire to climb so we’re going to transplant them to another spot. Still debating what else to plant under them. If it makes you feel any better, I have been waiting on a clematis vine to grow and bloom for 5 years. Finally, it has lots of blooms this summer!

  2. Amazing trellises, Kelly. My favorites are the bike wheel tower and the screen door. I have a vintage screen door in my potting shed waiting for me to do something with it. This could just be the thing.

  3. How and where does a person find an old awesome screen door? I’d love to have one among all the incredible ideas for trellises, great selection and how ideas are flying amongst blogger to make an incredible trellis. The bike is so cute. I’ll have to be looking at yard sales now for trellis repurposing another item. Happy summer days
