ABC Wednesday - F is Finesse


Maybe... maybe not.
You be the judge.

The story actually begins with a few overcrowded Forsythia,one of which was moved from here last Spring (2010).

The story also has to do with a backyard Fence;
the planning of which began several years ago.

This Fairly Fancy Fence, of my own design, began
as a Few Fence Fragments
Fit together.

See below.

Far be it For me to Feign Faint of heart...
but Fancy that - a Fine Fencepost hole begun!


Fphew! Fairly a lot of work
and the planting of the little Forsythia bush later...

I may have Fitted the First, but

Fabulously Fine help From Mr. Shady Framed the Future Fence Fragments

Fairly Fancily into place! (See the little Forsythia at right?)

Fence progresses - Fun for Feathered Friends?

Another Favored view.

Fairly shady . . .

Finely Finished...
For now.

You can't see it here, but we did turn one corner. Another section must be built this Spring and set in place! Then we shall truly say,

Finally! Fa La!

I'm a Fantastic Fan of your Fence. Sorry already run out of Fs.

The combo of fence railing and planter boxes creates a masterful display.

Thanks for sharing.

Ummm. And here I thought you'd reveal the secret of how to get my forsythis to finally bloom here in zone 4. Well yours look Fantastic anyway.

Hi Lulu. I did visit your post and I can see you've been having fun.

Hi Jennifer. YOU wrote quite the post this week.

Thanks for your visit, Gattina and Muffy.

Troutbirder, down here Forsythia blooms like "a weed!" Sorry.
