Trellis and Trailing Beauties…

I know that if I assembled a list of “My Favorite Things”…
somewhere along the way would be 
Trellis’ and All Things Climbing & Trailing.

Such as roses, and ivy and honeysuckle vines…

If you combine trellis’ with climbing and trailing flowers and plants…

… that’s about heaven!

When I think of a trellis, I think of two varieties.

A vegetable garden trellis which is the work-horse….

They can still be very pretty and almost ornamental in 
their own right.

And although you may think of the traditional trellis
created of white lattice work…

… to me it is the trellis that blends into the surroundings 
and looks as if Mother Nature had a plan all along.

Trellis’ can be round and traditional…

Square and classical…

… or whimsical and unique…

A project which is very high on my
 “Oh, I Really Want This Look List!”
 is this detail added above our garage doors…

These trellis’ shown above cover a row of doors, but I can easy 
visualize this treatment above our garage doors, with a rich and abundant wisteria vine surrounding it.

Look at this beautiful trellis used to create a sense of privacy
on this front porch.

I love this trellis that creates a wall.

Trellis’ are a great way to add architectural interest to any space…

The trellis design has become very popular even in
 unexpected places…. look at this easy trellis design on a 
lampshade using simple gross grain ribbon. 

Do you also have a Trellis Love-Affair?

I’d love to hear all about it.

Hope you’re having a great week…
Blessings, Barb

    I am a trellis lover as well. We have several old apple picking ladders at random spots in our yard leaning against the fence for our climbing roses. My husband built a really pretty trellis for a spot and we have clematis for that. I have 3 that we purchased years ago that I am waiting for the hubs to connect in an upside down U (so to speak) and attach to one end of our porch for privacy. We have a wisteria that will grow on that, hopefully! Then a few weeks ago he came home with an old trellis arch that he rescued and has to rebuild….not sure where that will go, but I will find a spot for sure! Thanks for sharing these beautiful images!

    I love a pretty trellis too!! I have several in my yard as you can attest too. Love a lattice pattern like on the lamp shade. If I see that pattern I always think of a beautiful outdoor garden, fresh and airy!! Great examples,

    These are beautiful pictures and I enjoyed all the different trellises. I can’t have delicate flowers that need trellises since the animals would make them dinner LOL!

    What eye candy you’ve put together! I love trellises. I have an extremely old fountain that I’ve just planted a climbing rose by. My intent is to put a trellis over the fountain so the rose will grow over it. When the rose gets big enough (and I get the trellis – HA) I’ll post about it.
