Wedding Pergola Update

Archadeck pergola, a garden destination in Stokesdale, NC

It is almost the month of June and time for an update on the wedding pergola.  In March I thought of a clever way to determine the sun’s place on the pergola and therefore determine the timing of the wedding ceremony.  There was a major glitch in my cleverness in that there were no leaves on the trees that loom over the pergola and offer the dappled sunlight of the summer and fall.  Oh well, the trees are leafy now and the pergola is a great place to hang out with a neighbor and chat while sipping a cool beverage until it becomes the wedding destination.

We have planted two blue  junipers and an oak leaf holly behind the pergola to give a backdrop for the wedding ceremony.  The moon-flowers and the star gladioli are up  and by the end of July should start to bud and bloom into the fall and provide natural color.  The morning glories have not awoken yet but I am counting on them to appear soon.  The pale pink climbing rose is helping give some early color.  We will check back when the pergola is in mid summer splendor.  Hoping that mother nature helps us out with rain and we will handle the weeds.
