The cute thing in the garden is called...........

I was quite excited to see the response that I got from my "steal" but after so much confuse on the frickin' name of it I decided to play teacher and go to my Oxford dictionary and here are the results:

GAZEBO: a small building or structure such as a summer-house, designed to give a wide view

PERGOLA: an arbour or covered walk, formed of growing plants trained over a trellis-work

TERRACE: (there was a lot for this one but I picked..) a level pathed area next to a house.....
okay I admit "I" picked the totally wrong word....can't be perfect all the time:)

TRELLIS: a lattace or grating of light wood used esp. as a support for fruit trees or creepers
and often fastened to a wall

CUPOLA: a small rounded dome adorning a roof

Well, I am going with a combination of trellis & Kara's suggestion of pergola.......
so lets call it a trellgola??? perellis???
As long as it adds to the "ambiance" of the garden, I'll take it and just call it TOO CUTE:).

Thank you to all of you who read my posts & offer your insight...
it always makes for a better day!!!!

On second thought (shoulda waited for it before I sent my first thought!), I think it sounds better without the "L"s. Call it a trezebo!
