At last...

The fences in the garden are painted black and look lovely. It took a bit of time to persuade the neighbours to have their side black as well but we painted their side, and for the most part, paid for the paint as well. They know they can change their side any time they want but hopefully, they won't. First picture from our window up to the arch with the new gate:
This picture between us and our neighbours:
This one - no fence - showing how much the front gravel garden is waking up:

    1. Thank you. Black is supposed to be the least noticeable colour.

    1. I have waited donkeys years for a picket fence, well worth the outlay!

  4. It looks fab! Isn't nature a wonderful thing? I love seeing gardens waking up.
    I've used black to paint the awful corrugated metal that forms part of the boundary fence at the allotment. I found it in Poundland and it's an oil based paint that dries to a matt finish - the metal bits don't look as obvious now.

    1. Love the hedgerows this time of year too, and the trees, such a vibrant green!
