A New Wisteria Arbour

This afternoon I published https://derrickjknight.com/2021/12/28/a-knights-tale-83-jessica-caps-me/

and printed pictures of Poppy taken on Boxing Day, but not posted on my blog, for Jackie and Tess.

Martin Bowers completed his work on the replacement Wisteria Arbour today.

He meticulously measured and positioned posts; fixed them temporarily first, and permanently once he was happy with the alignment. Finally he applied a finishing layer of cement to smooth the level of the prop pits.

My choice from the Boxing Day leftovers for dinner this evening was tender beef in red wine with creamy mashed potatoes. We each helped ourselves individually over a period of time.


  1. Such fine timbers – a beautifully constructed arbour. It will look wonderful all through the year!
    Your little cold frame is so pretty too.
    Aren’t left overs a total treat – it sounds as though you shared a very tasty selection!

  2. Your choice of dinner sounds absolutely delicious, Derrick! Next season, you guys will put the new arbor post to work! I think the word Arbor should be spelled Arbour… Americans…

  3. Looks like professionalism at it’s finest – both the arbour and of course the Culinary Queens magnificent food that obviously is keeping her from having to cook daily!

  4. Martin did a wonderful job! And what beautiful wood that makes this arbour! πŸ™‚ Bet the wisteria will thank Martin for their new “home”. πŸ™‚
    Some food are great first-time-around and then even more enjoyable as leftovers! Something to look forward to. πŸ™‚
