It arrived about 9:15:
Mario forgot to bring his power auger! So he and Randy dug the holes for the legs by hand. Fortunately it wasn't too bad digging in the spot where it was to go, so they were soon ready to position it, put in the concrete and level the tuteur.
The tuteur is behind and a bit to the north side of the iron arbour he built for me in 2003.
(The tuteur is not leaning- I'm holding the camera lopsided! :-)
The work crew (Randy, Mario's son, his son's support worker, and Mario).
I had planted 4 clematises (Star of India, Perrin's Pride, Rouge Cardinal and Huldine) last year in the tuteur area to get them started. Of course, they got somewhat trampled today so we'll see if I'll need to replant next year or whether they will recover...
