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!
