Fence Weaving, making sign easels and real concerns about our "electronic age"...

I bought a couple of truck loads of yellow cedar slabs and off cuts to use for my garden fence. The price is right and when it is finished around $125.00 will do a hundred feet. Tonight is the time change and Spring is very close. It is time to get busy with gardening, pruning and other spring things. There are still frosty mornings, the price to pay for beautiful sunny days.

Awesome shot from a friends home of Mount Washington, holly in the yard and my stash of leaf mold for the yard and garden.   
Getting the wood, painting and assembling easelsThe wood is re purposed from my Dad and the door skins left over from another job. It is good to have a stash!
The Kids hanging out, the two easels. There are more health issues coming up every day we need to educate ourselves. 
Interesting sky, a quarter moon and beach wood for the fence.
The slab fence - I am very happy with it, still a ways to go. This is the view that the neighbours see from the road. I love the texture mix from the slab boards. Still have the tarp area to finish. Hides my yard, protects my garden from the deer (somewhat, they are pretty clever at finding ways to eat the tops of tender new plants). I need to write a post just about fence weaving.
Thanks for dropping by.

  10. That is the most wonderful fence I have EVER seen!!!! How awesome to have a one of a kind!
    Anybody can have a traditional fence! This one is so YOU! Loved all your photos. The only one that looked like it cold have come from our place is the pile of leaf mold. Not that we were purposely collecting it.......we have several 'stashes' of it around here!

  11. Your fence is so creative and cute! I love it.
