From Tree to Trellis

Sadly, our festive tea pot tree came down in a rainstorm earlier this summer. The tree, with three distinct branches instead of one solid base, pulled apart into three directions. Fortunately, most of the teapots survived the fall and were transferred to the entrails wagon until we selected a new home for the collection. Eventually, the trellis arbor between the Rosemary House and Sweet Remembrances was designated to be the new home, and with the help of some energetic kids, we began placing teapots up, over, and around the arbor. It's a different 'look' than the tree,but quite fun in its own right.The teapots have a new home, and we're happy to keep adding to the collection.
