Grandma Barb’s This and That
the rickety old posts and barbed wire make for some great photos! like the bindweed in the top shot, too. :)
oh, i love the wildflowers. i always wonder how you decide whether they are wildflowers or weeds? all the same they look so pretty. a bit of color here & there. like!! (:
Great shots Barb- I like that old fence.
the first one Barb looks like Morning Glory vine? Nice to see lush green happening
Beautiful pics! I love those old gray fence posts.
Enjoyed your pictures. I like to look on the sides of old country roads to see the foliage and wild flowers. Also love the post about tractors! We have a John Deer and a Ford, both in the 5o's.Nancy
I miss being able to take rides in the country. I thoroughly enjoyed your photos.
Nice shots...love the wildflowers on the fences
I love the first photo. Every barbed wire fence should have a pretty blooming vine growing through it.
Great photos, Barb. I went back and took a look at your previous posts (we've been on vacation) and I was blown away by your beautiful hydrangeas. JUST GORGEOUS! It's one of my favorite flowers, and certainly to design with. If I lived closer I would be grabbing up all of yours! LOL I hope you're staying nice and cool. I've had enough of the extreme heat already...although I'm not wishing for cold weather yet!Hope you're enjoying the tail end of summer.Sending you hugs and cool breezes~Lisa xo
You're a great photographer. Beautiful photos!I appreciate you stopping by for a visit.Mary Alice
Great pictures of a lovely old place!
Amazing to find the rose hips...that area is really growing. The wildflowers are nice mixed with the fence.
Your photos just bring ma a feeling of quiet "aaahhh"...something about the freedom and random plants. Love those rose hips! That was a nice touch - have never thought of photographing those!
Love that old fence line! The rain really made a difference!
what we say here is that a weed is just a flower in the wrong place.
Dearest Barb,Wow, beautiful place with lots of greenery. I remember the words of the former Emperor of Japan who was a botanist surprised me "there is no plant called weed". Beautiful pictures ♡♡♡Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*
It is amazing at the beauty all around us if we just stop to see it. Lovely photos, Barb.
I believe that fence has seen better days. Hope it's not there to keep critters in... or out!
It sure does look like August. :))
oooohhhh what gorgeous wildflowers!!! I really like that rickety old fence, the older the prettier!!!
Lovely photos. I really like those old rickety fences.
You took great pictures .! The old fence is full of wild flowers. The force of nature covers the works of people.I am glad to meet you .Olympia
That is pretty cool and it made me smile when I see rose hips. Now I know what it is and what it looks like ^_^Kim,USA
I love the first capture, with the barbed wire and the morning glories. Part of me wonders how the morning glories can cling without being hurt, even as I know they grow slowly enough to be safe...
The old faithfuls like morning glory and QA lace make a pretty photo if given just a bit of rain. Weeds they may be but still welcome. Lovely shots of high summer, Barb.
Olá,A última foto está espetacular!!! O esfumaçado encobrindo a essência dela para destacá-la...Deus te cubra de bênçãos e te faça feliz!!!Abraços fraternos de paz
I love your fences...and yes, it certainly did green-up. We were supposed to have a good drenching rain, but all we got was a sprinkle...boo hoo!! Have a great weekend!
Love the hips... that should be on a greeting card.
Hi Barb!Your pictures are beautiful...you even make the weeds look good~~~LOL!Have a great weekend!!Smiles :)Kerin
I just love the look of those old fences, Barb...and your header is beautiful!

Morning Barb,I hope that all is well with you.Thanks so much for linking up again with Green DayI am sorry that I have not been around for the last week or so but I have my Mum staying with me at the moment and feel guilty if I don't give her my time and so haven't been on the computer much.I will have so much catching up to dowhen Mum goes home that it will take me until Christmasto get through all the posts I have missed!Have a lovely weekend.x Fiona
I enjoyed looking at all your country scenes.Thanks for stopping by my place, also!
Weeds or wilflowers -- anything green is a welcome sight these days. :)
Wow! I believe I see some goldenrod blooming already.
Wunderschöne Aufnahmen und so passend zum grünen Tag...Lieben GrußCL
I see your goldenrods are peaking through. Ours won't come out full till end of Sept. Great scenes of lush green which I prefer.
it sure is nice to see all that brown turning green again! especially when there's a rustic old fence post in the middle of it.
Such beauty all around us, isn't there? That first photo looks like wild morning glories! So pretty. Thanks for your comment on my "amazing cakes." I couldn't believe those "books" were cakes either! My friend sent another photo of a lady cutting into one of them. I should have posted that picture, too! Have a good weekend, BarbHugs, Cindy
Lovely green shots :))
Very pretty pictures, Barb. Love those rose hips. A little rain sure does make a difference. We got about 1/2" last night here in GA.Enjoy the weekend.
I love looking at old farm fields. We have a few still left near us. Nice photos. I like the one with the rose hips, too. Happy Sunday.Babs
Such lovely photos...I absolutely love driving down country roads looking for photo opportunities! You found some wonderful ones.
Barb, I love seeing pictures of old fences, wildflowers, and yes even weeds. Nature at it's best!Hugs,Jann
It's wonderful to see the world turn green again. ;)
Hi Barb,Yes, it is nice to finally receive some rain, but now the weeds are appearing :-) Wonderful photos and I love the old fence. Beauty is everywhere!
I love the old fence. Great shots Barb!!
