Arbour Reflections

an arbour

encouraging others 
to climb 
in triumph

keeping them 
from being 
pummeled to the ground
when the storms come

upholding them 
a safe place
for new growth

a harmonious haven

Do you have an "arbour" in your life?  Perhaps you are an "arbour" in someone else's.  


  1. How lovely your flowers are!!
    I love all of them. Especially the third and the fourth are my favorites! The white flowere in the first is hydrangea?
    Tomoko from Japan.

  2. Oh my this your garden? Even if it's not it is absolutely gorgeous. The contrast between the beautiful soft pink roses and the deep purple clematis is perfect. The roses look like New Dawn and they all look so healthy. I hope with lots of work my roses here will look as wonderful! Yes I have an arbor but it was built this spring and it's in the shade so I'm still debating what to put on it. First I have to wait until our hot temperatures cool off down here in Kansas so we can stain the picket fence and arbor. Not looking forward to that but it has to be done. My hubby is my arbor and I'm sure he'd say I was his :) Have a wonderful day.

  3. Tomoko: You are right, they are hydrangeas. I'm glad you liked the roses with the raindrops on them, Redrose!

    Maura: Thank you so much for your thoughtful comments. To answer you, it is my garden. There are places in it that look rather more barren while waiting for things to grow; those places didn't warrant a camera view! You accurately identified the New Dawn roses, a favourite of mine. As for your picket fence, how wonderful to have one! Nice that you have an "arbour" in your husband!
