As is typical in Portland, it rained off and on all last week while we were working on the fence. This is what it looked like after we had all our work clothes, coats, and rubber boots on.
Not terribly inviting, but we persevered. We set the posts with concrete. These will support a screen of narrow boards running horizontally. This screen will serve as a backdrop to the fireplace as well as a privacy screen.
Is it level? Why, yes it is!!! because we are that good!
View from the front.
And there was a lot of mud to navigate. Very slippery stuff.
Don't set your box of fencing nails in the rain puddles on the fence. The box literally came apart in 30 seconds. We had to switch to a plastic mixing bowl.
Then we took a break while the concrete set up and went Glow-in-the-Dark Miniature Golfing!
We also did a little shopping too. How about these lovelies at Kate Spade?
Makes me think of spring.... I can't wait for some warmer, drier weather.
