A room without a view

Last winter we had some wicked wind gusts and part of our fence was damaged. Mom & Dad were a little miffed because we replaced the fence 5 years ago. When they took the damaged part down, they could tell that the posts were not installed properly and had rotted out.

This side of my yard isn’t very interesting. It has a few plants and the occasional bird, but it’s only 7-feet wide and serves as a walkway alongside the house to the air conditioner and water softener. Without the fence, I’ve been able to enjoy an expanded view of the neighbor’s yard. They have a giant puddle of water that people splash in.

Last Friday some workmen came and blocked my view with new fencing (with metal posts this time). Oh well, the view was fun while it lasted. 

Maybe Mom & Dad can work on sprucing up this area to attract some birds and give me something more interesting to look at. Maybe they can go to the garden statue place and get something fun (but not a giant horse head).

    One little bird feeder should do the trick, and you’ll be all set for lots of birdie TV. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy

  2. I agree about the bird feeder, that would totally solve the problem!!!

    We bet that Mom and Dad will get that area prettied up for you in no time, Raven! Maybe they could paint a mural on the fence? 🙂

  4. We agree with Kitties Blue, a bird feeder should do the trick. Purrs

  5. We wonder if they could hang something on the fence like a bird feeder to attract some birdies for you, Raven.

    Darn fence! Sorry it blocks your view.

  7. Our best window has no fence! I feel for you having to replace it. *augh*

  8. I say a bird feeder and some plants.

  9. We vote for honeysuckle vines! Wouldn’t that be fun?

    Oh yea, I think a bird feeder is a super idea!

  11. A bird feeder would be great, and some nice plants!

  12. Raven, I can imagine some nice garden statuary with pots of pretty growing things up against that fence! Betcha the fence cuts down on the racket coming from the people in that pool!

    It’s so fun to spy on the neighbors! Well, since the fence had to go back up, maybe your parents will think of something fun. The bird feeder sounds like a great idea!

    For human standard the new fence looks very nice, of course for you it’s another story ! Ask for a watch tower so that you can look over the fence !

  15. Oh, that’s frustrating when people do work for you and don’t do it right! But your new fence sure looks nice, although it’s too bad you can’t peep at the neighbors anymore. (Although…. if your neighbor was like ours…. you wouldn’t wanna peep!) 🙂

    Whoa, look at that hammick! Nicky used to lay on TW while she laid on the hammick in the old place. You need a bird feeder or squirrel feeder.
