I was so glad to have my fence painted white. When I moved here it was Winter and had to wait until Spring, and then had to wait for the Painter cause he was busy with previous projects he was working on. He did a nice job, and I like that the boards are fat ones and not skinny. He first pressure washed all the fence, then scraped off all the old and chipped paint, then repaired the broken latch on one of the gates. Then, he began the painting. It's a long fence area in the front of my yard, and I'm relieved it's done. I think it looks good.
I'm not sure what the story is, but when the previous lady lived here, part of the fence was painted, and the other half was not.
I have to admit that it was bugging me, cause I wanted the whole thing completed. I guess I was impatient, but it's nice looking out my window now and seeing the birds land on my newly painted white fence. Doesn't this Quail look pregnant. : )
My brother said that he would put grass in at some point if I wanted, which was so generous, but the water usage would be enormous living on a big corner lot, and we don't have water to waste, as it hardly rained at all this year. I will groom my flower beds and plants and wash down the walkways, but I kind of like the woodsy look in my front yard. After all, I live in the mountains now.
Well, I won't leave you with a boring white fence, so here's a few happy pics.
I've had a little Christmas lately with some Peppermint tea. So good.
A Robin came to visit me one day.
Mia enjoying the Summer days with her crab float and pool and ice cream!
We have the biggest Dandelions here in the mountains.
And the dandelion does not stop growing because it is told it is a weed. The dandelion does not care what others see. It says, "One day, they'll be making wishes upon me."
Can't believe it's almost July. I'm wondering what kind of things they will have up here to celebrate the 4th.
