Good Fences in a Grapevine

Hi Friends
Welcome to this weeks

Today I am sharing something a little different with a wood fence.


When I saw this tangled  grapevine growing on and over a fence with a vine arbor attached,
I just had to take a photo of this.

At the time there was no leaves or green on it.
I'll have to go back and see if it's growing.

The trunk of the vine can get huge as they age and
 look more like a tree then part of a grapevine.


Not sure if this is a vine trying to be saved by the owner growing over the fence 
or left over from a living vine that has died.

We grow grapes in this part of Texas but I have never seen something like this growing
onto a fence with an arbor.

What do you think?
Is it living or just a mangled mess?

Time will tell and I hope to share more as this story continues.

Thank you for stopping by today.
See you soon.

Morning, Celeste! Oh, that is an interesting spot! The grape vine looks like it's trying to pull itself out of the earth! ;) It probably produced lots of grapes at one time. Thanks for sharing your lovely snaps.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Oh, it's a tangled mess but it may still be alive. Keep us posted!

Oh, I feel sorry for the poor thing! I think when you go back to it, there will be some kind of life left. Can't wait to see!

Mildred said...

It will be interesting for you to return and give us an update. Great contribution for Good Fences! Have a lovely day!

Great picture. It looks dead to me. I wonder if it was cut back if it would come back. Dang...almost looks sad but then I am sure that old grapevine has some stories to tell! Happy Thursday sweet lady. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

TexWisGirl said...

wow! that's amazing! would have never known that trunk was a grapevine!

LJ S said...

Celestina, I can't wait until we go back to see the grapevine in full bloom. I believe it is still alive.

Christine said...

Oh would have thought it was a dying tree as I did not know vines grew so huge!
Hope it survives!
Thanks for sharing!

Good morning, friend. Catching up on your posts today. Loved reading the letter to your mom, simply beautiful. And the glove box is gorgeous.
Thank you for the graduation wishes. It's so special to be able to share a little bit of that day with my dear blogging friends. I'm still above the clouds, wearing a permanent smile. :)
Love and blessings.

HI Celeste,
I'm thinking it's still living but it really has a haunted look to it. Have a delightful day my friend.

Fascinating picture. I had no idea grape vines could grow so thick.

Oh my, how unique and beautiful! It might be a tangled mess, but it's a lovely mess :)

Happy day, my friend. Hugs!

I have many of those tangled up messes but I do like your fencing.

Nancy's Notes said...

I hope it's living, that tangled mess could turn out to be beautiful, one day! Keep is posted~

Tete said...

That is so cool! What a great idea to use the fence for support! I would bet its really pretty when its all leafed out. I hope you go back to check on it later.
I love coming here. Just makes my day!

Cynthia said...

Doesn't get much cooler than that. I've never seen this

Ida said...

What an interesting find. I've never seen a grape vine with a trunk that huge before. I do hope you go back to see if it's growing and green.

jeannettestgermain said...

In the new area where I live there are numerous vineyards, so this here is no comparison, but when these long branches are blooming it may look better:) In any case it's a good fence:)

Hello Celestina,
Wow that is an interesting tree with vines! It will be interesting to see if it is dead or alive. Hope you enjoy the rest of the week.

Great fence showing today. I gather you are in Grapevine. I live in FW.

Marie C said...

Such an intriguing photo! Is it a grape vine, or could it be wisteria?

Lois said...

Interesting shot. I'm not sure what to think. I have never seen a grapevine with a trunk that big!

Cranberry Morning said...

Now that's one wild grapevine! What an interesting photo!

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Good evening my dear friend. I am enjoying your fences that you share. Things that we pass by often are forgotten or go unnoticed, but it's such a good exercise to look at them and see their potential. I'd like to see what this tangled mess will become in late spring! Kinda like some of us....a tangled mess but full of potential!!!!!!

Kathy said...

You definitely must return to see what happens. I'm hoping you find lots of green and beautiful big grape leaves on long twisted vines.

Consider It All Joy said...

Such beauty that we often just pass by without a second thought! Nature does produce many stories if we would take the time to listen! Blessings, Cindy

Donna said...

I had no idea that Texas was a big grape grower! It looks the the owner tried to take part of it out and one point and ran out of steam:) Hope you have a good weekend!

Feral Turtle said...

That is amazing. I can't say I have ever seen a grape that big! Looking forward to finding out more about it! Cheers.

Margaret Adamson said...

Out of the tangled mess, live May still come.

Alessandra said...

Debbie said...

It looks like a mess to us, but God can take a mess, and make something beautiful out of it.
Great photo, Celestina!
Enjoy your day.

Rue said...

I've never seen a grapevine like that in my life! I hope it's still alive :)

Kim said...

Oh gosh, I hope it's alive and growing over that fence as we speak. How cool would that be??

Sherry @ Thrift My House said...

Very interesting Celestina! I've never seen vines that big either. It does look like a mess but I bet when it's all green with leaves everywhere, it's a beauty!

Createology said...

Whether this grapevine is living or not it is a piece of art with the fencing. I am glad to see it wasn't chopped down. Creative Fences Bliss...

Mary@mydogsmygardenandmary said...

Great picture, but I do think the tree is dead, but maybe the grape vine will pop out, but it should have by now.
Have a great weekend.
Mary

Oh Celeste I hope when you go back it will have some life to it. It is an awesome sight.

Pauline Woodcock said...

I've never seen such a huge trunk on a grapevine, it must have taken a very long time to grow so big. Surely it will spring back to life again but it doesn't look promising, does it?

Kelly-Anne said...

Hello Celestina! I am enjoying a little Saturday afternoon blog reading with a good cuppa in hand!

Your Good Fences posts are always lovely and this one is such fun!!

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend thus far and enjoying the delights of Spring... We had a little rain this morning and I think it is safe to assume the chilly weather is here to stay for quite awhile. Ah, I do love Autumn:)

Much love!
Kelly-Anne

Claudia said...

Great photo of the fence!! It looks like it is dead to me, but hoping that it is alive when you go back there.
