Tunneled in…..

Oh, I love it when a ton of manual labor turns into a labor of love!  I returned to buy 2 of the arches Steven and I had seen and we decided to get two trailing white roses as well.  I was so excited to get to work making the adjustments to our established plants and planters to make room for the arches.

The rain let up a few days earlier, the ground had a chance to firm up, and the sun was out.  Perfect timing to dig in.  Here is the results of my labor…..


Give these roses some time and they will fill in the wire.  Our hope is to take a few longer arms of the roses and fill in the gap between the arches eventually.  We will see how it goes, but I am so in love with the new dimension we added!  The Blarney Castle tunnel inspired me and eventually the eye will be drawn to the gorgeous rose tunnel and not the drab harsh looking eucalyptus stumps!

Oops, now to find a new home for all those snowdrops I dug up…. Cyn


About designbycyn

Sonoma County, California ceramic enthusiasts Cyn and Steven Gradek have worked in the clay medium since 1996. They had a retail store where they held classes and provided the essentials for fellow ceramic enthusiasts. The business evolved into producing for other retail outlets and artist. Which quickly grew and they closed the retail storefront and concentrated on the wholesale business. With their 3 children raised and on their own, they had time to pursue their own creativity. Cyn learned how to embroider from her Grandma Cirner at a young age. After that she found sewing, cross stitching, crocheting, well you get the jist, LOL. She hasn't met a craft that she hasn't liked. Blogging was suggested by her youngest daughter, Colleen. At first it was a battle to get her to try it, but eventually Cyn started to enjoy the exercise. The blog on Cyn's website designbycyn.com was limiting, so Colleen got her started with Wordpress. Hope you enjoy her Adventures with Creativity!
