Good Fences Thursday asks us to post a photo of a fence or gate each week.
In the spring, when I was walking at a local park, I saw a notice about a public art project asking people to volunteer to knit or crochet sleeves for trees at the park. I immediately started to memorize the information (since I didn't have anything to write with or on) ---and then I asked myself, "What are you thinking?" I had started a scarf for my husband last Fall and it still wasn't finished. How could I possibly complete a sleeve to cover an entire tree trunk? So I put it out of my mind.
One day during the summer, I arrived at the park to walk and saw the results from more industrious people than I. The first three photos are of designs on fences. Scroll down to see some of the trees, too.
I'm not exactly sure what the concept of this is/was. I didn't think it was more attractive than the railings, fence and trees were without the knitted sleeves, but I guess it was a project meant to bring the community together and was probably not harmful to the trees.

I'd still be working on those until, say, 2034.
