I thought this day might never come.
All summer long we have toiled to finish this huge project.
Early last spring when I innocently mentioned to Daniel how nice it would be to have a fence to keep our "younguns" in the yard and the neighborhood dogs out, I had NO IDEA what I was actually asking. The hours and hours of work and sweat that would be sacrificed to make it happen. Daniel did. But he listened, took me seriously, and he worked his rear off to make my fence dreams come true.
Daniel's parents graciously gifted most of the funds we needed for the project. Fences are shockingly expensive, in case you don't know. Even if you do all the labor yourself, the materials are more than a family saving for an adoption can afford.
So thank you, Daniel, my talented, hard-working husband. Thank you Paul and Suzie. I LOVE our new fence.
By the way, the sides of the fence that face the road and our neighbor's house are eight feet tall and allow us plenty of privacy. The parts that face just toward the back and driveway are only four feet tall so that our view of the bluff and the Harpeth River is not blocked.
Aren't the arbors that Daniel built over the gates pretty? I can't wait to plant climbing plants around them. Any suggestions?
While I was out taking pictures, I snapped a few of my flowers.
And I can hardly do a blog post without including a couple of shots of Madeline. :) Here she is right after her bath last night.
And wearing the too-cute PJ's that I got her at a consignment sale. Love the bunny slippers!
