|Broken rose arbor: Before|
Our rose arbor suffered a collapse this summer due to old age and some of 2012’s big winds. (It’s one of the memories emerging as I sort through thousands of retrieved images after a major data loss.)
What would we do? All our energies and budget were being sucked up by our front yard reno. But we couldn’t just leave it there like the hedge of thorns around the Sleeping Beauty Castle.
Enter my father’s adage: Anything worth doing is worth doing badly.
Rather than wait for the perfect solution, we went for an imperfect but do-able one now. A good thing for a gardener to remember.
