This photo is the epitome of Texas wide-open spaces. It is not the typical natural wood fencing, or the often white painted fencing you see along the country roads. The black stain, the owner chose, accents the beauty of the countryside.....green grassland and beautiful blue skies.
As I was driving down the road, this section of fencing with the white rocks, is what first caught my eye. I love the way the fencing dips down to follow the rolling hills. Apparently, the white rocks have been placed there to help prevent erosion of the soil.
Just another small peek at the land that I love......
Another Friday with Jan 'n Jer's Friday Fences. Please check out their blog for other wonderful and interesting fences.

You are so right, Tanya. The grass was cut and trimmed just like a lawn in the city. Someone spends a great deal of time keeping it this way.Delete
And a beautiful land it is. Much more green than I thought texas would be. groetjes, GerdaReplyDelete
Hello Gerda....Texas is so big that you can find almost any kind of terrain. There are deserts, small mountains, rolling green hills, and of course, we do have our sandy beaches of the Gulf of Mexico.Delete
It actually reminded me of the acres of fences (and trimmed lawn) in Kentucky, specifically in Lexington with all the horses. When I was there taking care of my daughter, we would drive around and my grandson was the look out for horses--kept him busy. Thank you for a cherished memory. XOXOReplyDelete
Hi Susan....so often here, there are herds of cows grazing behind these fences.Delete
It all looks so beautiful and cared for.ReplyDelete
I think this happens when the owners have help to keep it trimmed. As you can see, it was a very long fence.Delete
I like that black fence. It's perfect with all the green.ReplyDelete
Hello Elna....I must agree with you. I like the black beter than a white fence.Delete
These black stained fences are common around Kentucky horse farms. And you're right, they really highlight the TX wide open spaces. Must have been a beautiful drive.ReplyDelete
Hi Faye...it is a new drive for me, that I am taking each week, on my trip to visit my mother's home.Delete
Gorgeous photos, Meggie! I especially like the first one. Beautiful!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Brian...you are so generous with your comments on my blog.Delete
Love the wide open space in your first shot, simply beautiful!ReplyDelete
Have a wonderful weekend.
Very nice fence...love the angle on the first shot!ReplyDelete
Reminds me of Lexington! So pretty! I was in Lexington for work a couple times and they had lots of fencing like that, some black, some white.ReplyDelete
Flying into Lexington airport is the prettiest landing of all the airports I've ever landed. Bright green fields speckled with bright red and white buildings and lots of horses and beautiful fencing. And it's all so close to the airport, you get an awesome view the whole way down.
Beautiful fences....I love your land and blog too...your so sweet!ReplyDelete
