5 foot tall. Constructed to hide the other side. Imperfect in that it always lets air through. Weathered showing its age. Present before we moved in to our house.
What is our backyard fence meant to hide?
That along the fence on each side is a beautiful row of flowers?
That each homeowner spends a lot of time watering and weeding their garden?
That while different, each garden is tended to with much love and dedication?
You see, we may be surprised by what we find on the other side of our backyard fence. That our neighbors might just very well be more like us than we think.
Never a mirror image, each side of the fence shows a diversity and a different beauty we are all capable of. Finding what is common to each side of our backyard fence goes a long way to better understanding how similar we really are.
