Good Fences

Here in Texas a short drive in any direction will surely turn up many fences.

Like this fence on a trip south towards Hill Country.

Looks like a little repair is needed and I'm not sure what is actually being fenced in here.
Maybe it traveled all around the house at one time and was not replaced when it fell down.
Maybe it was a good fence once upon a time!

Love the peaceful charm of this place.
Could this become a painting?

Wishing  you Southern DayDreams

Be Blessed

It is a pretty fence scene..just a little repair is needed.. Great fence shots. Have a happy day and thanks for stopping by!

Sola Scriptura said...

I think this would make a delightful painting. We have stone fences here in Scotland, so different from this picture. I hope you are well and having a good week :)

lynn said...

it differently would make a great painting!

Proof that even a fence that needs repair can be beautiful.

Celeste,
Good morning sweet friend. interesting photograph and loved your description. My favorite fences are in the country around farms and homes made of stacked stone, around the properties perimeter adding grace and substance. But I'm also in love with white picket fences around charming cottages.

Vera

How fun, I have a fence just like that, with the same droopy problem!

Liz@ Infuse With Liz said...

I definitely can see this being painted...perhaps with some added snow falling and the shrubs and fence accented with snow! I always wanted to have some fencing as an accent but since it would serve little purpose it never happened.

Cranberry Morning said...

I can see it as an Andrew Wyeth painting.

Feral Turtle said...

Beautiful photo! Good fences make good neighbors...lol

Ida said...

Nice fence scene. It would make a nice painting. One does wonder about why the fence hasn't been repaired though.

If anyone could paint it it's YOU! Would look darling on one of your vintage items.

I can just imagine there must be a lovely herb garden around the back of this sweet little house.

Love & hugs, Edie

Margaret Adamson said...

Yes I think that fence could do with a few nails in it to repair it!

Tete said...

I imagine life got in the way of what it could have been, or was, once upon a time. The ramp to the front door lets me know someone isn't able to finish the dreams that once danced in the back of a creative mind. A wheel chair does that to you. When priorities change, you can sometimes see the dreams left undone. Imagine sitting inside looking out at broken dreams day after day...maybe God will send someone to mend the fence, and the dreams it contains.

carolann said...

Your picture is a picture view and the fence. It would make a lovely painting. I agree with all.


Have a nice weekend.

It's not a bad fence, just needs a little Tender Loving Care!

I see a painting in the making for you, Celeste! Maybe add a horse or two? It is totally charming. And your weather is still warm? Today it turned very cold and windy; it was so windy that when I opened the door to my car, it just about BLEW OFF! Oh my the wind is strong!

Enjoy your weekend my friend! Anita

NanaDiana said...

Gotta love those old fences. I always wonder how they came to be neglected and fell apart. Great picture. Hope you have a great weekend. xo Diana

Lois said...

A very pretty shot! I have neighbors with a partial fence like that and they did it on purpose just for a decoration in the corner of their front yard.

Paula said...

Peaceful setting but the ramp makes me think everything may not be as peaceful as it once was.

Amy Burzese said...

I think you could make it a beautiful painting!

Donna said...

Yes, that would make a good painting, Celestina! I always liked the old saying that "Good fences make good neighbors"! Have a great weekend:)

Janet Bernasconi said...

Lovely house and a lovely fence sweet Celestina. I would definitely turn it into a painting. Hope you are doing great. Things are great on my end, but very busy. So that's always good. Enjoy your week it's sure goes fast! lol
I'll be back to visit you soon,
xxoo

Felicia said...

what a great find. I like the character of the fence.

Pauline Woodcock said...

I agree with those who think that scene would make a lovely painting. Perhaps the fence was just to mark the boundary? to define in from out. I'm sure it had a purpose once upon a time.

John's Island said...

You are right ... It's an interesting scene and great painting possibility. Thanks for sharing and thank you for stopping by my blog and your comment. I'm now your newest follower and thank you for following mine! Have a good weekend.

What a beautiful painting this would make.Have a lovely weekend.

Ruth Kelly said...

Fences always seem to need repairs.

Beverly Dillow said...

Beautiful photography! I love Texas! :)

Createology said...

By the look of the ramp into the home it may be that the owners are no longer able to keep up with maintenance. I see this happen here with aging or ill homeowners. I would think this fence has lots of stories to share...

cynthia lee designs said...

Oh yes...it would make an awesome painting.

Red Rose Alley said...

Celestina, I am also drawn to fences - just the way they look, how old it is, and what it is that they are fencing in, like you said. I just took a picture of a white fence in the country while I was driving home today. These old houses are so charming, aren't they?

Have a very nice weekend, Celestina.

love, ~Sheri

Mari said...

Well the fence really does need to be repaired, but I think it has a certain kind of charm....perfect for a painting Celestina ;-)

Hugs~

Julie Marie said...

Mary@mydogsmygardenandmary said...

That old fence would make a stunning picture and I know you could paint a
beautiful one.
Hope all is well with you and you are staying warm.
Hugs

Jill said...

That is so neat! Fences can tell so many stories.... Here all I can see is lots and lots of snow and it's still falling! :-) I am so ready for Spring! LOL Have a great evening!

Blessings,
