A bit of progress outside.....

Dh got the privacy fence put up, you can see it from the living room.
This is the before.
This is the after.  Along with our new umbrella.
It's perfect and does the job.  It's around the same height as me, so around 5 foot, five inches.
We then sat down and had a nice cool glass of lemonade.

The screen looks good - just the job to give you a bit more privacy. I like the red umbrella too!

The privacy fence did the trick, now you have a nice spot to sit and relax.

I get it now...I misunderstood before. I thought maybe fence was just the British way of saying railing. I do really like this. Looks good!

My next door neighbors did the same thing when they built a gigantic condo behind us -- the people on the 3rd floor can look down into our yards and probably houses. We just planted trees.

1 watched several programs yesterday showing US homes in Florida and they didnt have fences surrounding their properties. Just a house surrounded by grass with this strange meshed in area for mosquitoes. Where do the animals live? What about privacy. Anyone could walk right around the house. I do like your area. Such lovely homes. Though if i had a choice id be on a property with 10 acres and an old homestead.

Your new privacy fence makes it very cozy and private and I like the umbrella. We will be buying one soon; does it stand up to a wind, and is it easy to open and close?
