With trusty jigsaw in hand,
and my design drawn upon the picket ,
I cut, cut, cut, (two at a time)
until I have enough pickets to make a scalloped fence.
We built this section of fence to anchor the "new" olde stone wall .
These picket fence corner sections are on both ends of the stone wall to enclose this perennial border.
It isn't the first time I have cut these pickets. I previously cut 320 of them to make the main fence that runs along a side yard. People see this fence and do a double take, when they realize that the pickets are bunnies, squirrels and woodpeckers.
Think about making a picket fence with your own designs. Picket fences add a lot of charm to a cottage garden, and isn't charm the very soul of a country garden?
When I am not cutting pickets, I am in the garden,
Or painting up in the studio that looks out into the garden..
and what am I painting??
Well, Picket fences and gardens , of course.
I still have a way to go on this illustration.
