Rurality

While out driving yesterday we came upon a lot of fences out in the country - some very useful - some very fancy - and some just simple and plain.



Decorative - with Tulip Tree

Rustic - with Tulips

More decorative -this fence went on, in sections, for about 1/2 mile

A heron sculpture just inside the Rustic fence

There was a horse nearby, but not in the lovely fenced corral

A fence with a purpose

Just a gate, no fence to keep anything in or out - and a clever sign

One of our favorite pastures, as the sun was setting.

The fences with the tulips are so quaint. I also really love your last shot of the sunset and very pretty bokeh!

LOVE all the fences! The first four especially are well framed shots!
I'd like to have that heron for my yard.

What I love always when I visit the US is those white picket fences. That is something we don't have over here. Most of our 'fences' are stone walls as it is a feature of this area.

I do love the white picket fences, really summer comforting! I love old brick walled gardens hiding their secrets. Chel x

The gate with no fence - randomly interesting. Love shots of decorative fencces.

Beautiful photos! I love that first shot with the magnolia tree. I'm a bit worried about my tree blooming this spring. Thanks for sharing that one.

Sharon Chapman said...

Oh my goodness I would hate to be the one to paint that 1/2 mile of white fence! Great photos and loved the heron.

I love them all, Jo Ann. The first fence looks a bit like ours in St. Augustine!

Love those red tulips with the rail fence. Very nice.

I love fences JoAnn. There's a wooden plank fence at a communal garden close by where the people have taken the planks, plank by plank, and carved, drew, glued and generally designed a one of a kind fence. People get up to such wonderful mischief, don't they? :)

Fences make wonderful frames for gardens beyond - the Magnolia tree and the tulips are beautiful JoAnn!

What a wonderful variety of fences this week. It is such fun looking at all the different styles. The gate without a fence is commonplace in our rural county. The blue heron sculpture is a classic. He would be happy here beside my tacky pick plastic flamingo. Lastly the tulips and the tulip tree....mana for the eyes. genie

You always do such a great posts for our favorite memes, JoAnn. Always so many variations on the theme and I like that you take the time to describe each photo. Your last photo of the country field at sunset is a personal favorite.
