Reasons to Love Coastal Gardens, Part One

Enough said!

Don't Fence Me In

Our 2010 project is putting a fence around the yard. I say "our" but I really mean "Bob's". We wanted to add a little decorative privacy but built it to be friendly to the neighborhood atmosphere Rockaway offers. When Bob designed the fence he quickly gave up the idea it would keep deer or other critters out.

In true coastal time it has been a work in progress. Meanwhile I have started to shape the garden and make sense out of what has been a large patch of weeds. Gardens require patience and I know it won't be done this year or even next. But after each working session it is nice to sit back, relax and enjoy the view.
