Fence
Hello! Today, I am finally sharing pictures of our finished fence. It was well worth the 10 year wait!

Gate
I especially love the top of our gate. Phillip drew the design for them to cut, and it came out perfectly.

I've had the afternoons to myself this week, so I've spent some time in the gardens.

Hydrangea...

The fence is so pretty and I love the flowers, especially the delphinium.I have never seen one up close. I meant to tell you that I am sorry you lost the lovely tree that your children loved. I know how one can get attached to trees like that. Daddy brought dogwoods from the woods to plant when I was little. We all cried when they died many years later. They were a part of his love for nature and our Creator. Blessings, Sarita

What a beautiful fence, and I love the unusual carving on the gate - so much more interesting.

Interesting to see your flowers too. I still only have 3 blooms on my hydrangea, and they are the blue shade.

I messed up my first Linky post, so I did it a second time assuming that you'd delete the first one. I'm sorry; I was trying to highlight the box and got the Submit button instead.

How nice the fence and gardens are! The detail on the gate is just lovely and how special that Phillip drew it himself. Just makes it so personal to your family. Love your flowers too. Hydrangeas are a favorite of mine.

How very beautiful! I do love the doorway to pieces!
I planted delphinium seed earlier this year. I don't see them coming up yet and am wondering if the will. I know perennials by seed can be pretty contrary.
