Our porch had to be approved to be period correct and our study had to meet the approval of the board members.
Our driveway is split between our house and our neighbors.
When we first moved here we inherited this small little fence on the right hand side in the front of our property. There is also another small piece of fence going halfway down our property covering what we like to call the little bridge which goes over a small water run off.
You can see the two small mismatched fences over the little bridge. The farthest one belongs to my neighbor, the one on my side is mine. That is why they do not match, although we inherited them when we moved in. You can also see the school house across my neighbor's yard. The white two story house down past the fence is the school house.
So this year I bought some fresh greens and draped some over my side of the fence.
I loved how it looked even though the fence needs to be redone desperately. My desire is to build a fence along our side all the way down to our carport from the mailbox. I know it is an expense but our Amish friends are willing to do it for us and even came to measure. My husband originally only wanted to replace the two pieces but I had a secret plan. So when Steve came to measure I asked him to measure and price out the entire length of our driveway so that we could have an idea of the cost. We also decided to replace my neighbors as well. He is away until the Spring and it also needs repair.
I have my fingers crossed hoping that my husband will want to do the project.
Rob is very handy, but building a fence that length requires professionals. Some of that ground hasn't been touched in decades and the length of the front is two acres so from my house to the mailbox would not be fun. Although I have never encountered anything that Rob can't fix or do. (Totally trying to get this fence. Hee Hee)
Towards the back of my home my neighbor has a fence around the perimeter where the horses used to be.
I miss the horses. I always felt safe with them there and I miss the sounds they made and watching them run and play in the grass.
I've always been facinated with roads and walkways where a fence runs alongside it.
I think about next Thanksgiving and next year and if I had a fence I could buy some fresh green rope garland like the one I bought for my front porch and my small fence in the front, from Home depot. They had the best greens this year. Just thinking about wrapping it along the fence. . .Hmmm, I get giddy just thinking. Hopefully. Will keep you "posted. " ( no pun intended, hee hee.)
