    An update...
    Last week, I put the two red knock out rose bushes back in, and today, I got the arbor anchored and some of the slates down...

    Tomorrow, I hope to get slates going out the sides for the concrete bench and sun dial...then, plant a boat lod of wild flowers I have started from seed in the greenhouse.

    Yesterday's progress...
    I didn't like the slates butted up against each other, so I separated them by a couple of inches each and added some more.
    I put in 2 concrete statues we bought over 20 years ago. The Fish Monger Boy on the left and the Singing Angel on the right.
    You can't see it from this view, but right in the middle is a sun dial on top of a cement base we found on the property when we first moved here.
    I'll get close ups of each and post them.
    I have to add another inch or two of soil, then it will be ready for planting the flowers I started in the greenhouse.

    Today, I put in a few more wheelbarrows of dirt and put rock dust between the slates...
    I also planted Morning Glories and Moon Flowers on either side of the arbor and directly behind the bird bath.

    It looks amazing! I can't wait to see what it will look like when the flowers are in bloom.

    @MoonShadows, your garden room is beautiful. Finding the sundial was a bonus! Are you taking the pictures from an upstairs room? It's a great angle to see everything.
    I love both morning glories and Moon flowers. How does the garden look now?

    MoonShadows has left the forum. Had a temper tantrum because there was talk of changing Picture of the Week acronym from POW to PotW. o_O

    Thanks @tortoise! She sure has a beautiful garden room. I like some of the things she did with the space.
