Friday Fences: Closer to Home

For Friday Fences, I have shared photos of fences from some of my favorite places to visit here in Australia. Today I thought I would stay a little closer to home and show the fences of my own back garden.

If only those fences could talk...they would tell the story of my children growing up, playing in the back garden. learning to run,  jump and hide, learning how to build cubby houses and swing on an old tyre. Enjoying summer family BBQ's and learning how to garden from their father.

These fences change with the seasons...and change with time, just like my children.

The  fish pond (there is also a lovely little Crimson Rosella and a very disinterested cat!)

My little boy, planting up the garden in Autumn with his dad 


The first tomatoes ripening this summer


These fences have seen a lot of action


I'm linking up with the wonderful Life According to Jan and Jer for Friday Fences. At his beautiful photography blog, you can find creative photographs of fences from all over the word!!

  9. First, some of we adults would pay good money to get that gorgeous red hair on your little cutie. :-) Your yard looks like it has fun for everyone and there's nothing lovlier than full-blooming clematis tumbling over a white fence.
