I feel badly that I haven't blogged recently....or as Mr. H would say "Did you BOG today?" Now that my gardening season has ended, the new grandbaby has been born and the move south has been accomplished, what do I "bog" about?
Let's see....we're building another fence. This has certainly been the year for fences, hasn't it? First it was a protective fence around a small spring planted garden, then it was the replacement of that fence and the big cedar fence that got flattened by the falling maple tree, then it was an extension of the garden fence to surround the newly built beds. Now it's a puppy retaining fence. We live on a corner, across the street from an RV park, so there are a lot of distractions to lure curious pups into the street. Not to mention some scary desert creatures that could be dangerous to their health. Can we say "rattlesnake"? Our "yard" is natural desert landscaping, with a small wash along one side where those desert creatures dwell.
Although this fence is going to enclose almost the entire front area of the mobile home, it is not going to be a pretty fence. Mr. H has insisted on plain, 4' welded wire attached to T-posts. I did win just a little bit, in that he's agreed to wood corner posts and gate posts, and to let me build a "decorative" gate. Eventually I'll also add some caps to the wood posts, and top them with some solar lights so our friends don't accidentally run into them when they drive into the yard.
Although the fence won't be lovely to behold, it will be nice to be able to let the pups out in the morning without accompanying them in my pajamas, with bed hair askew for all to see.
