Dressed-Up Fences


 This is my #2 time to join GOOD FENCES with Tex...

What a fun party.

I have a bit of a problem finding amazing fences or gates but...

I'm lookin'.........:)

THIS was our new fence at the olden house a few years back...
West Texas had good rains that year and the lawns were so green...
and THE ROSE OF SHARON 
OUT-DID THEMSELVES....

...they made the fence look mighty fine.

 
Adding a really cool potting bench, plenty of pretty flowers and a mirror
and birdhouse to THIS section of the fence gave that fence
THE BIG HEAD...!!  :>)

...and, for SOME reason, this photo of a section of an olden fence,
knot-holes and all....coupled with that amazing TEXAS BLUE SKY,
is one of my favorite photos.

The rust-encrusted hammer takes on a regal air......
and I love it all. 


Be sure and don't forget to make an appointment 
for your annual 
MAMMOGRAM...

  4. First time visit . . . I really liked and enjoyed seeing your "big headed" fence and the others too. I was especially drawn in to the head photo and "girls just wanna have fun" . . . off I go for a "sassy' kind of day . . .

  5. You did an excellent job on your second fence. I like all the various shots very much. Neat one of the hammer. EMBEDDED will not work for me. Something on the blog set up or something is out of order and I have no idea what it is.

  10. Love your fence! I think I like the hammer hanging off of it the most though! Love you for supporting breast cancer and mammograms. Early detection is key. It is the only reason that I got off as easy as I did with my cancer.

  21. Those are wonderful photos! Gotta love the blue Texas sky. ;) I've tried to grow a Rose of Sharon (twice) and failed both times. I just could not get them to do well. Yours sure looked pretty though! Have a great weekend!

  22. Oh yes those Rose of Sharon trees are fabulous with the fence. My mom was allergic to them so we had to cut them down at our old house where I grew up.
    The hammer is pretty cool and so was the barbed wire shot.

  25. Fab shot of the hammer hanging on the fence. Beautiful flowers by that fence. Nice shots!

  26. Nice pics. I have always loved fences that have some sort of flowering plant along them. That rusty hammer is a strange but great find. (I love taking photos of old rusty stuff ---often go to car wrecking yards to find them.) I never thought I'd put" barbed wire" and "elegant" in the same sentence, but the simple, minimalist quality of the individual barb on that wire does make that photo elegant.

    Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

  30. Hello there bj! Love the olden fence and the blue skies! I finally got around to joining the party this week. Well I just so happened to have my Mammogram yesterday morning. We've been praying for two ladies related to our small group that just had lumps found...
    Have a great weekend.
