P is for ......
After consulting my tome The New English Dictionary again,
it describes the word pergola as a garden archway,
as well as other shaped garden frameworks
which enable the trailing of plants or climbers!
Origin is 17th century from Italian/Latin pergula 'projecting roof'
I was inspired to post some before and after images
of the pergolas in the garden of our home
A bare pergola against house's back wall in early December '07
2nd bare pergola by outdoor dining/bbq area
and to Wisteria bloom in early summer '08 for only a few short weeks
they are actually more pinky in tone that lilac but you get the idea
and they were the very first real flush of colour,
as in a new home and garden everything that blooms and blossoms is a lovely surprise!
