An iron pergola for the roof garden

After months of waiting, reminding and begging on our side and many broken promises on the other, our ironworker finally delivered the iron pergola we hired him to make back in early April.

The poor grape vine had grown into itself so badly while waiting for the post that it took me more than an hour to unwind its tendrils.  (A few, unfortunately, had to be cut.)

The variegated honeysuckle 'Mint Crisp' is also already 'attached' to its new support:

Hopefully as the plants mature the pergola will give the garden some much-needed height and a feeling of seclusion.
