I still have photos to share from my October visit to Phoenix. This amazing landscape belongs to one of my brother's neighbors. Beautiful, no?
The thing is, it's all behind a tall chain-link fence.
Well not quite all, there are a few plants living in relative freedom, outside the chain-link.
But they're a kind of barrier of their own. What would you rather deal with? A metal fence or thousands of glochids?
Originally there was landscaping and a low wall, topped with a decorative metal fence. Behind that, in places, what looks to be a wooden fence, also decorative.
Wouldn't that appear to be enough?
Apparently not. Another line of defense was added. Along with signs.
The gate that opens to nothing more welcoming than another fence is a little bit creepy.
And there is so much good to see back there!
Camera lens stuck through the chain-link...
But then I had to back off.
Why? Look closely...
Cute face, but oh so vicious.
There were two of them, other other is visible on the right, back in the shadows. If the fence wasn't defense enough these two definitely got the point across.
Once more with the lens through the fence, because it's so cool!
And then I took my leave.
Back across the street, safe at my brother's house, he laughed and said, "I guess I forgot to mention the dogs?"... ya, ya you did...
