We had a big maple tree cut last summer since it was half dead. It was just to the right of this photo and the sun just streams through here now. We wanted to break up the space a little but still see the fencerow since we are birdwatchers. To the far left is a bed headboard set painted black to lead you to the front garden.
We decide on bamboo since over the years we have cut and stored quite a bit of it. It is Very Easy to work with. The only thing we buy is some treated posts. We don't even have to crete in the posts since this is light duty. We use little nails on the cross pieces and wire the bamboo right to them.
Every project makes a mess.
We had just been hiking and had seen some very beautiful sycamore leaves so I decide to make some copper ones for this project. Of course they will look better over time as the shine leaves them.
We made this bluebird house this summer. It has a hole in the front but just for fun it looks like a house on three sides.
I decide the headbord entranceway has to be colorized to go with the fence so I spongepaint it.
We decide to make a nice new birdfeeder for this area while we are at it. I make a few more leaves and we add a piece of Mississippi driftwood to the mix.
Done. I am planting a few things directly in front of the posts. Now I just have to cleanup the mess unless I think of something else. Hmmmm...

It all looks fantastic. You guys are really creative. Love your maple leaves...
Bethie you've done a really grand job!! I, too, love those maple leaves.
Oh, this looks good Bethie. Those panels that you guys constructed look particularly good to me, not that the handicraft items are less.
Everything looks great bethie.I like the leaves the bird house is really cute.
Your creations are beautiful. Love to see your garden in summer.
I wish I were half as creative as you are. The new fence looks wonderful, and I adore your leaves.
Bethie: May I ask where you get your thin copper for the leaf project? I've been trying to find some with no luck. Thank you.
kjalady, I got it at the Hobby Lobby. It was a sheet about 12" by 18". It makes Beeyootiful ivy leaves also. I LIVE to make hubby's groan.
