A tuteur for my garden. . . .



On Monday, the Garden Club is holding a white elephant auction and meeting at a nearby park. All members are asked to bring something for auction. I am taking one of my latest craft projects. . . . a willow tuteur. Believe it or not they almost look like the one in the book, "Better Homes & Gardens garden decorating", where I got the idea. From the book: This twiggy tepee, known in garden design circles as a tuteur; arose from a French word meaning guide and instruct. In the garden, a tuteur guides and insturcts climbing plants. I do need to trim the top of the tall one, just a bit. Perhaps I should top it with a dream catcher or a star shaped from a vine..........
