The Unplanned Arch

When I planted a small peachy colored honeysuckle bush on either side of this small walk through, I had no idea (because I didn't read the label) that they would quickly grow into towering ten foot shrubs. They have actually blended together at the top and created a cool little arch! Unfortunately the pretty flowers are all at sky height, much to the delight of the hummingbirds. I do love vertical elements in the garden so I will keep natures design this time!

I think it looks lovely. Sometimes the greatest gifts in the garden are the ones we never planned.

I really love a good arch. Working on a driveway tunnel here, if I can keep my MIL and her chainsaw away from it...
