I've been unplugged for a week or more.... for different reasons.
The beautiful weather is one,
I had surgery last week,
and getting online just wasn't in my schedule.
All is well.
During this down time
my husband has been working
on our backyard fence.
The fence we decided on
is what's called a
'good neighbor' fence,
instead of a 'privacy' fence.
The pickets are on both sides and looks good from both sides,
but mainly the wind comes through,
and that's a good thing here in South Texas.
The thing I am really excited about is
my variation of a 'moon' gate.
We've had this metal ring,
and the brass bells for many years,
and I always knew we would use them for something.
They go prefectly in my
The gate is 5 feet wide and about 7 feet tall,
putting the 'moon' at just about eye level.
You can see through the moon
to the back part of the fence
in these photos, and as you can see, we only have one side
of the pickets up so far.
At least while we are finishing up,
the wildlife can't eat my garden anymore.
Now, one more thing to finish it off....
I want to burn some words
into the wooden arbor above the gate...
coming in and going out.
Any thoughts on that?
Spring is here,
so soon I will be planting seeds.
How about you?
Now that I'm feeling better,
I want to catch up on
all your blog posts too.
I know you all have been busy,
creating and doing wonderful things.
Savor the Day!
