This is one of the many projects Wally has been working on. It's a very cool trellis with an interesting architectural element. He picked up these columns almost 10 years ago when he traveled across the US doing rubber stamp shows. He finally figured out a use for them and I think it really gives this a lot more visual interest. Once he's done I'd like to get some trumpet vine to grow up and over the trellis.

Well it's done! I think I need a Valium or something. I swear I've been dreaming about this tutorial every night since I started and it was kinda driving me crazy....LOL! Maybe I can get some sleep now. You can find all the details HERE.

Wally spotted this tarantula when he was out at the lake fishing. I'm a bit jealous because I've been wanting to see one since we moved here. I think they're super cool.
Except for a couple of rattlesnake encounters, we haven't really seen very many snakes this year. This is a little gopher snake that kindly posed for me.

Trevor had a blast trying to get this huge praying mantis on the other side of the window. It kinda drove him crazy. Oh...and the windows were just washed a week ago but the hummingbird feeders are directly above. You figure out what's on the windows...
