We've had a couple of beautiful, sunny Spring days. . . .It's my favorite time of the year to be outside. . . .Perfect for doing yard work. . . .and to finish projects started. . . . .five years ago?
If there's one thing John and I do well, it's finding bargains with the best intentions to go straight home and put them to work. . . .but then getting side tracked on something else. . . .We have plenty of plans, good intentions. . . .not enough time. . . .
Our white picket fence was one of those projects.
We bought all the parts and pieces five years ago at Lowe's, when they put summer items on sale. . . .paid $3 per section. . . .They were really trying to get rid of them, weren't they?. . . .We were more than glad to take them off their hands. . . .
All winter long I reminded John that this would be the year for the fence. . . .no matter what got in the way. . . .He was all for it, since he wanted them out of the barn. . . .Well, the weather hasn't cooperated much. . . .Looked like we might have a couple of pretty days this week. . . .So, we dropped everything and started working on that already five year old fence. . . .The rooster finally had something to crow about!
After a day and a half, our fence was up!. . . .True, it's not white. . . .yet. . . .and the arch has to be added. . . .but what a difference it made to the rose garden. . . .We both love it. . . .
Now, I can fill it with all kinds of shabby garden decor. . . .which means a trip to the barn to check what's on hand. . . .I've put off visiting the barn this Spring. . . .There's at least ten more projects there--waiting to be done--I know. . . .
Well. . . .we'll get to them one day. . . .I think that's called "JOB SECURITY?"
. . . from my farmhouse to yours. . .
