Fridays Fences

While traveling the back roads the other day I found this long, long wooden fence on an abandoned farm site. The fence seemed to go on forever.




There is no green showing up here yet and there is still a little snow in the ditches.

To see all kinds of other fences stop on over at Fridays Fences at Life According to Jan and Jer.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.
See you next time

Can you imagine the work involved in a wooden fence that long?
Our area looks about the same with snow in the ditches.

Beautiful photos! Old fence lines are so cool! We don't have much green yet, either. It is finally starting to warm up a bit, though.

Buttons said...

Oh I love those shots. B

Karen @ away for the weekend said...

I love how the fence goes on and on. We're starting to see a little green, but no flowers or buds yet.

great old fence (as long as i don't have to try to maintain it.) :)

I wouldn't want to have to maintain that fence- but it would be worth it if I owned the land, for sure! That will be even prettier when the grass starts to green out.

Wonderful fence pics Barb. It is indeed a long one. Soon everything will be green in the fields. Enjoy the weekend. Pam

Beth said...

Great fence pics Barb! Makes me long for my little town that was close to the country. There are still quite a few of those old wooden fences aroung.

Olive said...

That is a beautiful farm fence. I can't hardly stand that the farm is abandoned-so sad. Have a great weekend.

Faye said...

Will you show us this fence again in just a few weeks? Bet the difference will be amazing. Could you tell if this property was still in use or had it been abandoned. Regardless, love how old wooden fences seem to try to hang on.

That fence looks very lonely, Barb. Sure wish there were some cows gazing (not grazing) over the fence.

Zoey said...

When I see fences like that I always wonder who dug all the post holes! Just imagine how long it must have taken.

Barb said...

A fence that goes as far as the eye can see. It blends well with the landscape.

Lovely to see such a lot of sky (we are surrounded by trees here) such a beautiful place :)

Vicki @ lifeinmyemptynest said...

The blu sky is just beautiful :-)

Karen Frost said...

So pretty and peaceful there! Love the wide open spaces! xx

Tricia Hays said...

Good fence & it really IS quite long! =)

Karen said...

Waat a lonely looking road. I bet the fence was kept in good repair before abandoned.

JoAnn ( Scene Through My Eyes) said...

A lovely open space -and a grand fence. I wonder how long it took to put it up.

Beth @ E. lizard Breath Speaks said...

Michelle said...

Sally in WA said...

Great fence find, Barb!

Far Side of Fifty said...

Your snow is almost gone..lucky you..great shot! :)

Kay said...

This is a great fence - beautiful view. I'll bet someone was so proud (and strong and possibly sore) when it was done. I'm guessing they didn't have power augers then!

We're morphing into spring in Washington and how nice it is to see color again!

ladyfi said...

Looks as if spring is on its way. Lovely scenery.

Nancy Claeys said...

Lots of hard work there -- too bad it wasn't kept up. Great shots Barb.

JOY @ http://joysjotsshots.blogspot.com/ said...

You know many people would probably have so much on their mind and not noticed such a long fence. Thanks for the shot. At the rate we are going, you just might see spring when we do. It's been a long winter that I haven't enJOYed!

sparkle100-havealook.blogspot.com said...

That is about it where I live. No green.

I still have snow.

Like Joy said. Too me it has been too long of winter.

I am house bound and sun I need.

Linda said...

Lovely photos!

Marie said...

Wow! Great fence and such a nice blue sky! Some green will be in the picture before you know it!

Lisa Sall - Sall's Country Life said...

Are you sure you don't live down the road from me?

EG CameraGirl said...

Love the rustic fence here. We have about the same amount of snow and still no green here.

Carletta said...

At one time all that fencing must have kept in some kind of livestock.
It's warming up here this week and a little green is showing - weeds and clover mostly. :)

Jori said...

Lovely fence! Are green is just starting, can't wait until it's in full swing. Have a great day!

Jann Olson said...

I always enjoy looking at fences Barb. It will be so pretty when green starts sprouting around it.
hugs,
Jann

Judy said...

Neat fence! We don't have any green yet either, just mud :)
