Ta - DONE!

Done. It's a four-letter word. Those generally aren't good things. D-O-N-E, however, is an exception. To celebrate yesterday's fence completion (I know. can you even believe something else is DONE around here?!) I thought I'd take you through the changes in the past month ...
First, here's the old fence. Bad. U-G-L-Y! Thanks to my cousin, gone. Now R.I.P! Also gone, part of the Hell's Shrubbery collection. Notice that big root. That's what was left after Mr. and Mrs. MonkeyGirl got this shrubbery hellion and others to go away.

Then, after the fence was leveled, this spot served as the temporary dumping ground for the old walkway I tore out.


Lawrence and I could only get so far with the fence on our first try last month. This is what Lawrence and I put up yesterday. It went much easier this time for a lot of reasons. First, we only had three posts and two panels -- a third of our previous adventure. Second, it was much cooler. Third, we knew to dig the hell out of those holes since the post-hole digger size is too small.


And finally, the WHOLE fence. YAYYYYYYYYY!!!!!! (The backyard is SO long ... I had to shoot this from my neighbor's yard. That's their bench and flowering bush!)


Note to MonkeyGirl: Posting these photos worked exactly like we discussed!

Oh! I love me some home projects! I can't wait for the temps here to be out of the 100s so I can finish our yard. Afraid we are still a couple months away from that...

Love yesterdays post and the dialog between you and L. I imagine you would both be great neighbors to have! Happy weekend!

down here it's a three letter word: d.u.n. Looks great! When's the lawn party?

MonkeyGirl said...

Yeah! It looks much better than the old one (even though you can't really tell how ucky the old ones were in the pics). Thanks for the tip on the photos!

Gene -- Thanks. It's taking some getting used to, but I like it.

The fence looks great . . . seems like you are checking a few things off your list . . .

Not so much on our end, but things are really getting ready to fire up.

Stop by the blog sometime!
