In memory of dearly departed Buck Moss a fence is being built around the perimeter of Moss Cottage. Will be finished in a few days. I strongly regret not doing it a long time ago. A big dog or coyote can scale it if they really want to, but it affords some sense of protection and security from roving dangerous dogs. There are too many off the leash in my neighborhood.
A privacy fence will also go up on the hill behind my house which will prevent dogs or humans from wandering around back there. I'd like some more bougainvillea, maybe a trumpet vine rambling along the fence. The ground is solid and rocky up front - extremely difficult to dig. Whatever I plant has to be hardy enough to grow in adverse conditions.
Went to see a beautiful movie this afternoon. The book, The Elegance of the Hedgehog was a favorite. So so good!

If you're a big crybaby like me you'll need kleenex. The friend I went with didn't shed a tear so your mileage may vary (!)
