Open Studio

Inspire Me Thursday

This week's topic at IMT is Open Studio:

"Create anything you would like and share it with us, along with pictures of where you created it. "

Having a day off work when the weather is beautiful means one thing: working outdoors. I am erecting additions to the "stick" fence I put at the edge of my driveway many years ago. Over time, it has been repaired, and entirely rebuilt four years ago. Originally about 15 feet in length, I am adding sections to increase it to about 30 feet. The two sections at the left are the ones I began today. They are far from finished.........My method is to use only a few branches in each section then go back with what I have left to fill them in.

This is my open studio today!

What a great idea for a fence! All the potted plants and flowers look so nice against it.

I love the growing fence...there is something about allowing plants to define spaces (or create fences) that makes it seem less a barrier and, possibly, more of an invitation.
I had to chuckle at the similarity of our studio clocks...although I love the look of though it has had a life of it's own once (beyond the box and plastic of IKEA).
thanks for sharing.

this si so cool; i like the contrast of the flowers with the rough brick in the background - reminding us that every place can be made beautiful retatively easily.
