Orchard with blue chairs

A backyard orchard & potager garden in Santa Monica, California. Besides the grape arbor, there are orange, pomegranate, and persimmon trees, and two rectangular vegetable plots ( the edge of one is visible along the pathway inside the gate). The rustic gate is made of wired-together grapevine trimmings.

    I LOVE this, with the grapevine arbor and gate. I am so inspired to do this with my little back garden.

    Thanks for your comments, Christine, fillippo, methoxroxy & just_ginge.

    The gate is made of wired-together trimmings from the grapevine--very rustic, indeed!

    Love this photo. The sweep of the grape vine makes a wonderful line and the rustic gate below it .. nice. The grape must be 'Roger's Red'. Note to self - try again to find a place for this vine!

    Thanks for the comments, Sweetstuff & serialplantfetishist. Yes, that's 'Roger's Red' - there's a link to a closeup of a bunch in the photo description.

    @Robert, thanks for the invitation, but I'm in over 400 groups already!

    A tender yet pertinent eye on what we might usually not see and might a bit neglect : Flora and gardens. Do stop and smell the roses (but not only) take the time...
