Aphrodite Shrine Becoming a Reality

This may be one of my last "planning" posts in regards to the Aphrodite shrine that I am helping care for. I believe that I now have most (if not all) of the money together to bring all of the elements together.

We already have the beautiful rock shrine base.


I'd already decided on a lovely replica of the Medici Venus:

And now we've selected the actual arbor:


and the species of climbing roses (Blaze):
 



It's going to be so lovely once it's all completed. I'm so happy that I have access to land where this is possible.

All of these pieces will be in place by June 9. That is the set-up day for the Babalon Rising festival at Our Haven, and the shrine must be in order by then.

Thank you, Elle and Sannion! I can't wait for it to be in place with the roses climbing and blooming. *sigh* It'll be hard to tear me away from it, I think.

Have you gotten it up yet? I am excited to see pictures!

Son of Wisdom -- I'm going out to Our Haven with all the materials this Friday! The statue is in my car -- and she's beautiful! I'm picking up the roses tomorrow and the arbor on Wednesday evening. =) I'll take my camera with me and post pics as soon as I can. (I'm excited, too.)
