We love our neighbor's huge Forsythia that is visible from our garden and their Kiwi vine that prowls along the top of the fence between our yards. But sometimes things get a little out of control.
While I was fighting off the kiwi vine, Mark had his own powerful lines swirling through the garden from the back door all the way to the Tea House.
Nothing adds a touch of glamour to the garden like the yellow extension cord that Mark uses when he's working on construction projects.
He's starting work on the final projects in the interior of the Tea House; specifically the platform for the display niche known as a Tokonoma.
I love the mix of subtle colors and textures in evidence as the Tea House comes together. After I shot this picture, he took the display platform back into the house for the next step: finishing it with a linseed oil and wax treatment.
