When we got home, we realized the tag on the tree said Celeste. It was the type of fig tree. Then we laughed all over again!! So anyway, she has been Celeste every since. (Maybe you had to be there)
I did decide to put her in a pot on the porch to hide some of the ugly cable and utility shut off stuff. She is covered in little figs and we can't wait for them to ripen!
Here is how we started. Notice the bare rail on the right.
A Japanese Pencil Boxwood.
I found these pots at Joann Fabrics for 50% off. I was very excited. Pots are expensive!
I can't remember what this is. I just bought it because it was a shade plant and it was pretty!
The not so attractive non-railing with the paint peeling off.
the beginning of the small deck that will cover the sink hole by the porch.
This is what everything looks like now!
Notice the lattice behind Celeste.
The peeling paint is gone, and the same lattice is in place.
I have to give a special thanks to a few guys in the church who did all the carpentry! They donated all their time willingly and let me come up with the plan! Thank you so much!
