This week, I have a different kind of fence to share with you...this requires a little background.
I live in the city - just 1 house away from a busy 4-lane street - and 3 blocks from the local fire department. My neighborhood is a small one - just one loop with two short streets connecting both sides of the loop. But, there is constant noise - trucks, buses, cars, fire engines, police cars, garbage trucks...you get the picture. There has been a chain link fence up around our back yard for many, many years, long before I married Dan and moved here. I am sure everyone knows what those fences look like after a few short years...and ours was no exception. So, I have lobbied for a privacy fence for nearly 6 years now...and this week, I got it! Except for the copper post caps, the fence is finished...Dan says the gates will withstand a Force 5 hurricane! There are two 8' gates, on wheels to allow us to get the boat inside, and a "people" gate to allow us in and out without opening the massive gates. I am not sure if this is what Janis had in mind for her meme...but there you have it. My New Fence! I am so excited...I am sure it will cut down on the noise, the road dirt, and the prying eyes!

And, no, I didn't put up the fence just to have something to photograph!
Linking to Friday's Fences!
