    downspout trellis - cool idea! Plant a flowering vine on it .... one that likes water! Or Monardo(Bee Balm)flowers and tie their tall stems to the trellis(they like "wet feet"). How lovely!!

Art quilt. I love the clematis color against the gray of weathered wood. The bird house seems to be weathered aqua. Dark green batik or tonal print for the background above the fence, or maybe a moody sky color (purple/blue?), depending on how dark the fence is.
