Friday Fence




“Don't ever take a fence down until you know why it was put up.” ~Robert Frost 

Look what I found! This drab fence that is transformed. Someone painted a whole brightly colored city block on it. The perfect fence to start the weekend. Even the Psalms agree!

“I call to you, God, because I’m sure of an answer. So—answer! Bend your ear! Listen sharp! Paint grace-graffiti on the fences; take in your frightened children who are running from the neighborhood bullies straight to you.”

I love the mural! I wonder if they will paint more? It really brightens up an otherwise drab area.

Love! I've been going over it trying to recognized a "downtown" close to you. The church looks a little familiar. Any ideas?

Best,

Love Robert Frost and love this fence! I'm not posting today, so no need to check my blog. I'm playing catch up on comments since I've been way too busy this week.

I see that I'm not the only one that loves bright colors... While I'm not one that would want to paint this on my fence, I must say that I do love the brightness that it presents!!
Unusual and fun!!

What a find. We were in your area recently for a wedding in Hampton.

We were consumed with seeing family and participating in wedding activities.

One day I am going to plan better and make face to face connection with blogging friends who so enrich my life.
