Mary and I share a love of gardening, and when we get together, conversation always turns to what’s blooming in the garden, what’s worked, and what hasn’t. I always learn something new.

Creating a vine screen

After obtaining the supplies more than two months ago, Dave and I finally constructed a vine screen in our backyard. We used (3) 4×4 posted and some hog wire we recycled.
