Charming Make-Do Awning for a Sunny Window

IMG_2029
Robert Anderson came up with an ingenious idea to make a living awning to shade this west-facing window at Sedge Meadow Antiques in Alden, Illinois. He built the frame and attached vintage wire fencing for his Morning Glories to grasp, climb and cover the top of his storefront window. I think the scalloped fencing is charming with or without anything growing upon it. Don’t you love the idea of an awning made of flowers? -Ginene
