The Fence That Binds Us

This rustic white fence is decidedly pastoral - located on the corner at the end of our block, Gracie and I have passed it several times a week for five months now, only recently taking in the entirety of its charm. While playing on the block in front of the fence this morning, a friendly woman popped open the gate to greet us and it turns out we know one another! We had a grand time introducing our children and bringing sticks to Monty (who was sitting patiently while tied to the lamppost). Grace and I accepted an open invitation to visit the trampoline in their backyard, happy to have a new neighbour to visit. A pretty fence, a familiar face, knowing the names of the neighbourhood children - small simple things with the collective capability to increase our sense of connection and belonging in this city.

"Hi, neighbour!"


  1. Great shots! That white fence is a perfect backdrop.

  2. What a gorgeous fence and perfect place to take pictures! I just adore that second one of Grace, so sweet!!
