Our fence started to go up yesterday.
It was exciting to see the trucks and workers arrive and start all their busyness.
They got all the holes dug, and today, they are working on cementing in the main posts.
A big tractor trailer delivered the cedar for the boards this morning. We selected a KY Board style fence. We went back and forth between a split rail and KY Board and settled on the latter.
It sounds like everything will be complete by Friday.
I did find, what I hope to be, the perfect spot for an outdoor swing.
In between the cedar tree and the old wild cherry. I thought I'd put the back of the swing toward the corner of the fence. The swing would face the rear of the yard.
The trees form a little island in the midst of two swales. We'll have to see how wet and buggy it is this spring/early summer.
I hope once we get some landscaping in, our yard won't be as soggy.
On another note...
Last night I was shocked to see snow and sleet falling from the sky.
There was still a dusting this morning when I got up. The outdoor thermometer read 29 degrees. The calendar says spring, but winter is clinging on.
It seems the rest of the world is reveling in spring grandeur, while we are still waiting (with hope), but waiting.
Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life.
I hope you are having a blessed day.
I'll give an update on my crochet project in another day or so.
Toodles for now,
I'm linking up with Stephanie at The Enchanting Rose for her Roses of Inspiration Link-up Party.
