I've had this old picket snow fence for several
years now. The original plan was to sell it -
but I just wasn't finding space in my booth.
Turns out - that was a good thing!
Saturday - my Love and I - finally took the time
to add it our backyard. It creates a nice barrier
to the wooded property we border.
Yes - I paid $1 for it at a yard sale.
We already had the flower beds in place - but
they looked a little lame. The plants are all free perennials that I've divided from other plants over
the years. The rocks were where the fence is
now - but weren't 'working' that great.
Said rocks were 'free' - gathered from my sister's
rock pile from when they dig rocks out of their
farm fields for planting.
Moving the rocks to the foreground seems to
The fence didn't span the width of the whole
garden - so I used some of the rocks to create
a little path where the fence ends. It's an easy
access to the compost pile in the back.
Here's a shot from a recent post of the same
area 'before'. But this looks really bad 'cause
the flowers aren't up yet.
I'm just loving my new back yard!
