You will never believe what has happened around here the last few days!
Remember this post from several years ago? Fencing Drama.
Oh wait! No, it only FELT like years ago. ;)
After almost three months of tripping over 18 fence panels, 18 bags of concrete, fence posts, fence post covers, caps, screws, brackets, the lawn mower in the garage....it is DONE!!!
OH YEAH!!! :)
Ok, maybe not done, done. But the privacy fence portion is done. And let me tell you....that is HUGE!! :)
I owe a HUGE, MEGA - THANK YOU - to my ex-husband!! Seriously he worked so hard for three days during his vacation time to help me install this fence!
Instead of fully enclosing the yard in a privacy fence. I have opted to install pickets along the front side. (And hopefully a trellis with gate here as well.) But that will have to wait for me to find more funds. I'm sure you understand. ;)
At least in the mean time, I no longer have to look out my kitchen window or sit in my back yard to see this lovely view.
The abandoned house that has sit there for 2 and half years empty and unclaimed by a bank/person/city or anyone else who should take responsibility for mowing it and spraying the carpenter bees or any other type of maintenance. :(
I had to trim the tree along the backside. It looks kind of strange now, so some trimming is definitely in the works. And excuse the
work station table randomly sitting in the yard. I was SOOO stinkin' excited about getting the fence up I couldn't wait to post about it!
I can't see a soul from most of the yard now! And they can't see me either!
So.......you know what that means, right?
Yep, I can lay out in the nude now!
I'm JOKING! LOL
No...it means I can start thinking about borders and plants and flowers!! Adding a tree. A patio. A garden path (even though my yard isn't that big). All the fun stuff. (No, all of this will NOT take place this year, but a girl has to start somewhere.)
WOW! I'm exhausted, and excited, just thinking about it! :)
Do you think I can do anything about my neighbors crooked mailbox that has to sit on my side of the street?
Anywho....I will post "Lessons Learned" later this week for anyone
who is crazy enough to consider installing a fence themselves. :)
