Across The Fence

Fence Chat

Fence Chat

Most of my conversations with my neighbors happen across our fences. We share small talk, mostly about our pets or the weather. It’s easy conversation, friendly banter, sharing obvious common interests. We forge a connection without deep expectations.

Neighborhood bonds seemed tighter when I was a youngster. Now, my neighbors and I seem content with a wave, a smile and a few kind words. I imagine there are different social rules in every neighborhood. What’s it like where you live?

  1. Same here, Terry. My behind-the-house neighbor and I cannot even see each other for the trees/shrubs/whatever that disguise the very old chain link fence that separates our yards, so we yell ‘hello’ when we can hear each other in our backyards. My next door neighbors and I wave and yell (do you see a pattern here?!) hello’s over the fence, also. No one has time to talk anymore. I love the sweet birds you captured–now, they are having a conversation! 😀

  2. I’ve never met the neighbor on my left…I can’t get rid of the neighbor on the right…lol I’m very glad for her friendship. She comes over and we sit and visit…often!

  3. Lovely photo. I don’t see people until I leave the apartment complex and if GG is with me then we meet a lot of people and exchange hellos and sometimes more than that. It’s a lovely neighbourhood.

  4. There are three neighbors that visit with me over the fence from time to time and a few that wave as they pass by my home but the rest of them come and go without paying attention to the neighbors. Great picture for the subject of this post.
