Then the fenceline right at the front, well it was built as a brick retaining wall when the house was built, to cover over the septic tank (long since out of use) and then one of the previous owners decided to put a rustic wooden farm fence up. He was going for the OK CORRALL look (according to another neighbour) but thankfully didnt manage to find (or took with him) the metal nameplate to complete the look. This i have masses upon masses of the most gorgous bougainvilleas growing. DBF doesnt like my Bougs, but he works around them (and he does admit the flowers are very spectacular enmasse).
These were taken during one of the recent hail storms, poor garden.
