Friday Fences




This is on Glebe Road in Daleville. I use this little road as a short cut to get to Food Lion. I love the simpleness of this fence, these are really one of my favorite styles. Right next to this fence is a fancy fence made of brick and iron. Someone took a lot of time and money last year to put that up and to me it looks so out of place sitting next to this plain but perfect little fence. I obviously prefer this one to it's hoity toity neighbor next door!

That's a field of Queen Anne's Lace growing on the other side of the fence.

Linking up with Friday Fences ... Have a great weekend :)

  1. Hi Tanya,

    Thank you for visiting my blog this morning. Blogger unfortunately seems to be throwing a bit of a wobbly today which I think is why the comments window appears to have disappeared off into the ether! I so know what you mean about the simplicity of the fence you've posted a photo of here; it's quite perfect, especially with all the lovely flowers behind it!

  3. That field of Queen Anne's Lace behind and, of course, the sky above make it look like a watercolor.

  26. One of the things I love about other Botetourt bloggers is seeing photos of places I know. I know this fence and the brick and iron one you mention!
    I enjoy all your other photos from wanderings you've made in surrounding counties. We certainly live in a beautiful area.

  27. Simple fences are often the prettiest. I love all that Queen Anne's lace.

  28. A field of Queen Anne's lace and a simple fence--the very best rural view. Like you, I think it's best when the fence blends in or accents the landscape just enough. Overdone fences are just jarring. BTW, for the past 30 years I've painted my home inside with Porter's Queen Anne's Lace--best white ever--soft but no yellow.

    Late getting to FF visits. Glad to see everyone else seems to be having a busy weekend too. :-)
