Lots of nooks and crannies. Patience. . . and a huge drop cloth.
We started this last spring.
Today was a perfect day for painting, if there ever is such a thing. The temperature never got over 60 degrees, it was dry and bright, so we got the first coat completed on the backyard trellis at the California winter place. Final coat and touch ups tomorrow. Originally we were going to try to train a bougainvillea on the trellis, but that's not going to work for a variety of reasons, so we now have a huge pot and a Giant Crimson Mandevilla hybrid waiting in the wings. Never heard of it either, but it is supposed to work in this setting. If you're curious, go to www.sunparasol.net.
