Espalier Inspiration

I've always wanted to have an espalier in my garden.  I even had the perfect wall for it and an inspiration image.

Of course I'm way too impatient, so I planted Japanese boxwood and added geometric trellises in between each one.  If you're a long time follower you've already seen what I came up with for the wall, but hang in there because I have been saving some espalier inspiration that I'll share.

I covered the trellises with climbing cardinal vine.  I grew them from seeds.

I haven't given up.  Here are some I'd love to try.

Have you ever created an espalier in your garden?
