Francesca thought she was pretty clever the other day, getting involved with that garden tour. Honestly, she can be so self-important sometimes. But you may have noticed that she lost interest before the tour group got to the pergola and I'll be happy to take you there. Martha's pergola is a long, freestanding structure of granite pillars and wooden crossbeams. It really makes a lovely walkway with many beautiful plantings. You'll see that Martha created a 'blue' theme here. It's really quite beautiful.
And look at the purple variegation on this bloom! The pillars are wrapped with a special garden wire to help support the climbing clematis vines.
