This Fence Has Many Friends
Our fence that the Geek and I built during the first three months of this year doesn't stop to excite me. It is the perfect backdrop for my flowers - and if not a backdrop, then it serves as a beautiful side effect, something that just plays a good role in my photos - a good fence for sure!
Of course my poppies that many of you have already seen in my last few posts look really good with the fence (or the fence with the poppies?).
I just love to follow its line along the sidewalk and see the flowers peek through the pickets or even start their own life outside it, but very close to it.
A California Poppy wearing a fashionable hat - at least as long as it wasn't ready to face the world and unfold its own glory.
The Sweet Peas are climbing along it - I had planted them there for exactly this reason.
On Kaefer's sixteenth birthday the fence was the beautiful backdrop for some pictures I took of her, and it hold the garland in place even though it was rather breezy.
And of course the fence is a wonderful friend to the birds. Last week I saw a hawk perching here, but usually it's the scrub jays and the towhees.
I'm linking again to Good Fences at the Run Around Ranch - fence enthusiasts post their fence pictures there every Thursday.
