What I'd do with a $100 Home Depot gift card

In reading one of the gardening blogs I follow this evening I found out about a $100 gift card for Home Depot giveaway they were sponsoring. All you had to do was go to Home Depot's garden club site, browse all their great DIY projects and go back and comment about what you'd do with that gift card. Problem was, I found LOTS of things I'd do with that gift card. LOL More than my DH would want to help me with, I'm sure. :) But one of the first I would love to be able to do is: planting a vine on an arbor. My oldest son, Jeremy (who loves computer stuff-check out the link to his blog down and to the right) took a stab at welding and built me an arbor a few years ago complete with my initials. I've never been able to get it painted and placed where I want it. So I would love to be able to get that arbor primed and painted, placed by our company parking spot, in a place of honor and covered with either passion flower vines or Texas evergreen Wisteria which smells absolutely gorgeous when in bloom. This would be great in helping me get that done and show him how much I appreciate his effort in helping me make my garden special. So check out the blog and the giveaway.

I love my Passion Flower Vine on my arbor! I planted it in April of last year, it started blooming in August, and it has blossoms on it the whole time since then! And it is evergreen here in Houston.

I'd love to have one. I haven't been successful in getting one through the grasshoppers yet. I'm trying again this year with a red one. I'm in Central Texas, so mine wouldn't get near as big as yours, but I can hope. :)
