If you saw my May blog with the Harlequin American Romance Authors—Lee’s Folly—you’ll know my husband is a very handy guy to have around. After he finished building the folly, his next project was this trellis with a bench.

It gives us a little more backyard seating and since it’s higher than the fence, it also provides some added privacy. Now if only I had time to sew, I’d make seat cushions for it!

The electrical wiring in the folly has also been finished. Here’s a picture of it at night.

The perfect place to unwind at the end of the day. And very romantic, don’t you think?

The hanging baskets over the bench look great, Lee.

One of my hanging fuchsias overwintered and is looking quite perky now – lots of leaves and some buds – such a bonus when that happens.

Your folly does look very romantic – good inspiration for more books, yes?



The baskets hanging inside the trellis came from the nursery, so they were already in full bloom.

We planted a few more baskets ourselves and they’re still looking a little scrappy, but a week or two of water and sunshine will change that 🙂


How beautiful! It looks really great.


Thanks, Gillian. We’re the envy of the neighborhood!
