White (board fence) Wednesday and Outdoor Wednesday

Joining Susan at A Southern Daydreamer for Outdoor Wednesday and
Kathleen at Faded Charm today for

White Wednesday.

The fence that surrounds Cove Cottage was in desperate need of a lick of paint!
And time was running out! Our dry weather would soon be coming to
an end and we just couldn't leave the fence unpainted for another winter.
It was Now or Never! Painting by hand would have taken far too long so
Gentleman Farmer borrowed a paint sprayer. It makes a bit of a mess
of the grass and plants near the fence, but speeds the process along
greatly. The 'white' grass will disappear after a mowing or two.
After much hard prep work of scraping and rolling on a
mildewcide, and 11 gallons of primer and 11 gallons of white paint,
here is the finished product!
(Gentleman Farmer built all the fence and gates that surround Cove Cottage.)

One of the frequent visitors to Cove Cottage wanted to be in the
above photo ~ can you spot her?

Hopefully, next summer there will be a beautiful arbor and a gazebo to
go to through this new white gate!
