Friday's Fence from Texas
Today's fence post, no pun intended, was taken last week on my trip to visit with my mother. I didn't fully realize all the details in the photos I had taken, until last night, when I began to select the ones for today's post.
The three crosses, representing the Crucifixion of Christ, probably were originally all straight. I'm guessing the very hot sun, we have in the summer, pulled the crosses in different directions.
The white rail fencing seems to go on forever across the Texas Ranch.
The metal gate, cut with accuracy, is of a Cowboy, his companion horse, and faithful dog.... kneeling before a grave with a cross.
Can you imagine what he must look like on a foggy night.....

Great fence photos. I think the gorilla would easily scare me off on a foggy night. Happy Friday! HeatherReplyDelete

I love the fence with the kneeling cowboy. You can just feel his emotions. Amazing pictures.ReplyDelete

It always amazes me the different fences you've come up within your area of the country. An object meant to keep something in or out is turned into art at your hands and with your eye--so personal and compelling in meaning. XOXOReplyDelete
I can only imagine how costly that white fencing must be! I very much like that metal gate. WOW!ReplyDelete
I love that fence with the cowboy and the horse and dog. How absolutely wonderful.ReplyDelete
I love the way that white fence just goes on and on... Can you imagine the work that must take?ReplyDelete
And the gorilla is just too funny!
Harry would love that gorilla. My favourite has to be the beautiful gate with the cowboy and faithful friends, very poignant.ReplyDelete
Beautiful fences and scenery! Love the fence line in the second photo! I've never seen an ornamental gorilla before...that's definitely not an everyday thing!ReplyDelete
Lots of stories told in these landscapes--like life,ReplyDelete
a mix of sadness and humor. I read your previous posts about the lovely Belgian bowl. What a treasure you have there. Sorry you're facing that all too common challenge of breaking up the home of an elderly relative. I'll be doing that soon myself. Just try to remember some advice from Darwin: step by step, method in all things.
