My Fence!

I'm always looking for an opportunity to capture some unusual fence, and there are many in Texas. But today I'm showing you a couple of views of my fence, currently under construction.


In the first picture, you can see our car, which has to sit out all the time now that the garage is still full of boxes from moving. And you can see through the fence at this point, as the pickets have to be installed at alternate points on the inside (a shadow-box fence). Note in the second picture that there is a big tank behind the fence in the corner. This is our 500 gallon retention tank for water from the gutter, just installed yesterday. Note the landscaping is still in progress.

And I have my Internet and Wi-Fi established. This morning I first had the Internet/Wi-Fi- guys here to do the install, then the bug man came, then the Geek Squad brought my new TV and hooked up my blue ray player as well as the TV, and finally the repair man for our new water softener, which we found had not been installed properly. UGh! It was a busy morning, for sure, but things are looking up. The TV channels will be set up by DirecTv on Friday, and we will be totally back in the world!

Have a great Thursday. Joining in today with Theresa at Good Fences with my new cedar fence.

Good Morning, sounds like things are moving right along at your new place! It is a great idea having the retention tank collect your rain water! Pretty house and fence. Have a happy day!

Construction work in the house means you have to oversee & will be busy :)
Nice that you now have WiFi! Part of life now :)
Hope all is set soon & welcome back to the world!

I used to collect rain in a rain barrel and water the garden and plants with it, but we get so much rain, that it was continually over-running and that spot always soft and a bit muddy, so got rid of it. We have as much rain over summer months as there is sun. I like your box fence - they are very nice and glad you are connected and "more" moved in. Have a wonderful day. You know, its kinda funny, once upon a time when someone got a new phone; people would say, welcome back to the world - now its so technically advanced with all the options of phone, TV, Satellite, etc it really is "Welcome back to the world, eh".

Hi, Linda Kay!

Hope your 4th went well!

Modern moves are far more complicated than simple moves done 100 years ago.

your new house looks nice and so different from typical white American houses. Is the fence made of wood?

Margaret Adamson said...

yes there is always alot to do whenyou move to a new home and that fence looks great.

TexWisGirl said...

so glad things are progressing, though! always so much 'undone' when you move and i can imagine, much more, when a home is built!

How nice to get such a beautiful wood fence. You'll really enjoy it...and your internet and tv! Have a great week. Hope lots of things get done! Sweet hugs, Diane

Rose said...

Sounds like things are going ahead though, even with the hiccups of things done wrong. And you have Wi-fi--yeah!

Great cedar fence . . . ours is going to need replacing in a year or so . . . love its old mossy look, but the time is near to begin again.

I love the smell of brand-new lumber. Enjoy your new fence.

Latane Barton said...

You have had one busy morning... and just look at that fence!! So pretty, so useful.

Carola Bartz said...

It looks as if this will be a very nice fence - I like the "shadow fences". I remember when we moved into our house that our garage was full with boxes and stuff. It took several weeks until there was enough space that our car could fit in. Fortunately we only have one car!

Gail said...

Love your fence.

It's good to hear you are getting settled in so quickly...and you thought the day would never come, I bet!

Shug said...

I saw a fence like this the other day....in our area. Makes for a beautiful fence and much privacy as well. Hope you will share your beautiful home with us....or, have I already missed that? Hope your day is full of rich Blessings.

Hi Linda, your fence looks great! I bet you love the privacy. Glad you are getting settled in with important things. Thanks so much for your sweet visit and comforting words.

William Kendall said...

It looks like you'll have plenty of privacy.

McGuffy Ann Morris said...

Excellent. I am happy to see you getting settled in! Nice fence, too! ❤

Mike said...

I'm going to run a hose from my yard to your retention tank. Can I borrow a few dollars?

Nice looking fence!

How wonderful, getting into a new place. The fence looks great. I am literally three weeks behind in catching up with people's comments!!! :( I have been enjoying your comments on my blog posts.

Looks like things are coming along! Good to see you can use rain from your roof to water your garden!

Buttons Thoughts said...

Oh that is one beautiful fence. B

Cherdo said...

The fence is beautiful, but now I need to see the whole house. Save that for when you have completed landscaping? I'll still be here.

Thanks, Linda!

Cynthia said...

It looks like your new fence will give you plenty of privacy. Moves are exhausting! It sounds like you are coming to the end of getting your new nest in order now.

Lea said...

Nice fence!
Busy day, but you really got a lot done with all those delivery and installation folks.

"...E...", from VA, Beth said...

glad to hear that things are working again with your cable. i know when we have issues it really does set you back ... you feel at a lose ... funny how life is & how we can't live without certain items. ( :

Linda said...

Linda, I'm not a fence person. LOL! :)

Blogoratti said...

Really great work going on, and hopefully things will come together as you settle down. Best wishes!

Ida said...

It's a very nice looking fence and I bet when it's all landscaped it will be beautiful. It's good you are slowly but surely getting connected back to the world.

Gwen said...

nice! I gotta remember my fence photo from about a month ago, next Thursday... :)

Sounds busy around there, TV and internet being the most important now days. lol Like your neat new fence.

The new fence looks great. Lots of privacy.

Kay said...

The fencing looks great. It looks like redwood. We don't use them in Hawaii anymore because they are rare and expensive.
