Another beautiful day yesterday! I should have been pruning roses or cleaning up the garden but I decided that it was time to repaint the front gate and entryway. This pretty much took up my entire day and I ended up wearing more paint than I used on the structure. It looks so much better now (the gate, not me). Unfortunately, almost every other wood structure in our garden needs repainting this year. Some of these projects will probably have to wait until late summer and then it will be so hot that I won't want to do it.
I am longing for a picket fence around the front of our house to replace the rail fence that we now have. This time I'm going with the white plastic so I won't have to worry about repainting it. My neighbor has this fence and I can't tell that it is not made of wood. Hopefully, depending on the economy and our finances, we can do this sometimes this year. I know Michael thinks it is not needed but I think it would add a tremendous touch and feel to the garden. (He says that there are so many plants around it, you wouldn't be able to see the fence. He could have a point there!)
