"Good things come to those who wait."
Is that a phrase from the Bible? (Bible scholars out there, can you tell us if that's in the Bible? Is it a proverb?)
Even if it's not in the Bible, it's true. At least it became true for me.
For a couple of years now, hubs has wanted a rose arbor for the backyard.
I've wanted one, too, and yearned to buy one for hubs last year for Father's Day.
However, when I checked garden centers to find out how much they cost, I was floored.
The cheapest was about $400 and the most expensive around $800.
Bye bye rose arbor.
This year, the wish resurfaced in my heart.
After all, my garden scrapbook includes several pictures of the wanted white arbor!
Then, one day this past spring, the BJ's catalog came in the mail. (BJ's, for those who are unfamiliar, is a big warehouse store for paid members.)
There, right before my very eyes, was a gorgeous white vinyl arbor for $199 in BJ's online!
Thankfully, my daughter and son-in-law chipped in and we got the arbor. They even set it up for hubs!
What a Father's Day gift that was. yah hoo!
He constructed a brick half moon and the arbor sits at the edge of it.
He even planted red roses on either side so maybe next year, they'll climb aboard.
My froggie-on-a-swing hangs from its rafters!
"All good things come to those who wait."
DO YOU LIKE ROSE ARBORS?
