The Grapevine Tunnel

An interesting garden has a degree of mystery to it and this little tunnel over the "tricycle track" in the Moonlight Garden provides that mystery. I built it a couple years ago by adding five wire arbors in a row over the DG path and planting a number of vines at the base. There are passion flowers and potato vines mixed in with the grape vines which are finally able to cover the entire tunnel this year. There are grapes on the vines, but I suspect the birds will get the majority of them, which is okay with me. A tunnel to pass through, a shady place to hide or just an opportunity to see fruit growing, it all works if you're six or sixty!
