adorning the fence

April 4, 2011

Last year we built a fence for the dog run portion of the yard, to keep them away from the pool when we’re not supervising.  The dogs fall into the pool more often than I can even believe.

The fence isn’t ornate or attractive, but it isn’t unattractive either.  It’s just a nondescript fence.

Cristy had the wonderful idea last week to line the fence with small flowerpots and I think it is a big improvement.

I tried to locate more of these wire hoops holding the flowerpots to continue the prettiness down the rest of the fence, but was not successful.  I suppose I could try to make more myself.

And just to check in with the baby zinnias, here are the 3-week olds

and the 1-week olds.  This seed sprouting experience is very exciting.

Very exciting indeed.  I check on them at every opportunity.  You know, just to see.

Thank you for reading!

    Such a cute idea. Fences can be so ugly, but yours defied the odds! I’ve never seen wire holders like those but let us know if you end up making them. I would love a tutorial.

    Also, I posted up more of my pictures from Round Top! I bet you saw all the same stuff!

    I love this idea. The moss roses will be gorgeous when they’re all blooming.
