    See what you mean about the tacky fence.

    Oh dear don't get me going on that "Tacky" fence thing. It is rainy today or I would go and get a picture of how that fence is falling apart.

    Believe me I have tried and so has son.

    We do have pine trees and cedar trees. We lost some of the pines and replaced them with Missouri cedar seedlings. The pines did not adapt to the hot and dry summer weather.

    Glad...I don't think that fence looks that bad. :smile: Its hard because you can't control things like that when you have close neighbors. We sure have been there with ours...

    Like Joy said...hide it with plants and I bet she will find some good ones for you :sun:

    Thank you justme. It has been there so long that half the time I don't see it at all. This time of the year it looks the worse because of no foliage of any kind. When the yard begins to become green again then the appearance is much better.

    Great images, Glad. Thanks for posting them. Your grandkids seem to be having lots of fun & you do have plenty of room for them to indulge in such activities. Good stuff. :D

    The robin's eggs are such a lovely blue & the hatchlings certainly fill up the space in the nest. Wonderful shots, too.

    Love the colour of your roses. They are gorgeous & seem to be doing well with plenty of flowers. Very colourful & thanks for sharing.

    Thanks, Glad. :) Sometimes I don't think there are enough hours in the day. There certainly aren't for me & I don't do half of what you do. :lol3:
