So, do you ever drive past a house you once owned? Just to see what the new homeowners have done? If not you, maybe someone else you know conducts similar drive-bys??! Well, I did that the other day. I turned down the street where I once lived. And I noticed something new! So subtle yet so striking! Why didn't I think of that?!

When we lived at this house, the fence was draped in flowery jasmine; the scent as lovely and quaint as the look. But it all died, thanks to Hurricane Ike a couple of years ago. The new fix was probably a lot more cost effective than removing it or doing something else. I like it when people use what they have and make it work. Don't you?
Here are closer looks of the fence now:
So what do you think?
