fence almost done...

After the weather finally decided to cooperate, it's taken 3 days to get the fence full painted. That's not too bad bearing in mind it's about 90+m long all up and requires 2 coats of primer and 3 of paint done with the "helpful" and hyper 2.5 year old. So here's what it looks like atm...

We chose to go with a eucalyptus green for the posts which corresponds to the roof colour, a camel colour for the plinth and top rail corresponding to the house-colour and the wire when it goes up will be a pale cream like the trim on the house. Wire will go up Saturday. You can also see the gorgeous camellia in full bloom.

Close up detail so you can see the posts and colouring better. I'm undecided if I should add detailing to the top of the posts... not sure if it'd make it look too busy once the wire is up so will wait till that's done to decide. The ground in front of the fence is bare atm but will be a thin little nature strip eventually.

And last but not least, my little green house with some of the cuttings I'm trying to strike. The white box is dozens of rose cuttings... hopefully they will take and be lovely!
