05/05/2010 - Integration

The gazebo is now a key focal point in the garden, providing a delightful spot to watch the birds and have morning coffee or evening wine.  When the vine is in bloom, it's full of bees.  When the berries ripen it's a popular spot for mockingbirds.  The leaves provide a thick shady canopy, sheltering us from summer sun. When frost arrives, the fan comes down and the heater goes up.  Since we didn't paint the dish, there's almost no maintenance----just trimming trailing branches around the edges.

Next time you see one of these relics that's destined for a landfill, I hope you'll remember this blog.  If you do create your own satellite-dish gazebo, please send pictures!
