Friday's Fences

When I started thinking about a post for today, I remembered this fence. I pull in this driveway once a month to pay my land line bill I use for my office. It is a co-op telephone and internet company that services those of us who live in the country.


It is just a few miles from the farm and on the highway that leads into town. There is nothing but rolling hills for miles around with a few farm houses dotting the landscape.


Photographing the fence made me fully appreciate the uniqueness in the building materials. I can now see, it is a fence that will stand the test time.







I thought you might enjoy seeing the entrance, with the beautiful crape myrtle trees showing off their summer  blooms.







I'm joining with Jan 'n Jer's Friday's Fences. I hope you check out their blog......

  1. What a cleverly designed fence - so stoutly made and yet we can see through it, to that huge and beautiful tree - or is it a cluster of trees in photograph 2?

    1. Hi Elaine....I was thinking it was one tree, but there are several trunks. The top appears as a single tree.

  6. You're so right about our beautifully striking flag. On the news tonight they showed demonstrations in Greece and they were waving their insipid pastel blue and white flags!

  8. The crape myrtles are just so regal and I love seeing them when I've visited Texas. We had them in Maryland where my parents lived, but I can't grow them here in the Pacific Northwest. Aligned with this incredibly, sturdy and forthright fence it makes for a very welcoming entrance. XOXO

  10. There's such a contrast between the harsh materials of the fence, and the soft stone of the pillars. You've captured that so well in the photograph.
