I Love Latticework

I love latticework!

I’ve had an idea rambling around in my head that involves a latticework screen in the garden here OPP and so I’ve been looking at a lot of lattice.

The use of latticework is nothing new – the ruins of Pompeii revealed its earliest known use and it has been around ever since.

So imagine my delight while touring the gardens at Bellevue House in Newport where latticework has been employed throughout the property.  There is a brilliant red latticework bridge…

I definitely have lots of lattice inspiration after this tour!

Give me an arbor, give me the trellis’d grape,
Give me fresh corn and wheat, give me serene-moving animals teaching content,

How about you?  Do you love latticework?
