What do you do when you are out walking one morning and you see a perfectly nice headboard sitting at the curb waiting for the trash truck? Well...you jog quickly home, get in your little truck, go back and get it, and take it home.
With some lattice and bright red paint it becomes the new gate for the entrance to the garden work yard.
Then, if you are lucky someone shares cuttings of this lovely, drought tolerant succulent with you and all is complete.
Since this path leads to the storage and work area of the garden, I wanted a gate that would block out most of the mess and this does the job. The vine that you see is a Virginia Creeper and it hasn't yet begun to set it's leaves, when in full leaf it soften the wall.

Oh, the fun of re-purposing!
