Pencil Fence

Back in March or April, a few giant colored pencils began appearing on the other side of our backyard fence.


Pretty soon a lot of giant colored pencils were leaning up against the fence. Had a young family of giants moved in next door?


No family of giants, whew!

Instead, my incredibly creative and talented next door neighbor decided to change out the fence boards flanking her back yard gate.


I think it’s the coolest thing. Every now and then I’ll head out to work and open my front door to see someone taking pictures from the sidewalk. They sheepishly grin and wave at me, and then they ask: What kind of wood did your neighbor use?

I always reply: “Cedar posts… and a really big pencil sharpener.”


  1. That is soooo cool! Now I feel myself wanting to wander the streets of Salem looking for this creative fence!

  2. On a busy street near Parrish MS. Start wandering... :o)
