I made this sort of thing-it was actually a 4-sided 9foot x 9foot square arbor- using rerod with pvc pieces at the joints. Then I spray painted it all with metallic copper paint. It's covered w/hops, clematis, & honeysuckle. It's come a COOL secret garden room.

The hours I spend with you I look upon as sort of a perfumed garden, a dim twilight, and a fountain singing to it. You and you alone make me feel that I am alive. Other men it is said have seen angels, but I have seen thee and thou art enough.
