Good Fences #6

I like this simple entrance on the way towards town. It comes up quickly after a turn and I finally pulled over to snap some photos of it.

The red swing gate

with a Circle M

to match the post marker.

The beautiful, long drive and green fields of cattle doesn't hurt the view, either.

A nice looking entrance. Love that red gate.

Circle M? Mama's place? Nice red to mark the turn into the drive.

Roan said...

This lane reminds me of the one leading up to our barn where I grew up. Gravel with grass growing in the middle. We didn't have a nice gate like this one or a Circle C for Cather either. However we did have a nice fence like this one.

DeniseinVA said...

Like the Cicle M sign. A pretty rural road too.

A Quiet Corner said...

I love the long driveway and green fields....THE BEST!!!...:)JP

Your first and last photos are gorgeous. If I we're there, I wouldn't be able to avoid taking a long walk up that path.

I love that Circle M! A different, yet attractive gate.

Cranberry Morning said...

Not only is the gate nice, but there's nothing like a country lane (or in this case, I guess it's a drive). So pretty.

William Kendall said...

A lovely area to drive through!

Margaret Adamson said...

HI Tex Love the 'M' sign and the long road ahead.

Ileana said...

Karen S. said...

I like this! At first it reminded me of the Box O Ranch from my grandfather's day, but I like this Circle M even better! I just know playing along with Good Fences, is going to finally push me to pull off the road and take those, long over due shots too!

marilyn said...

Oh, the days of childhood, riding in the back of a truck down a gravel road. This one is just beautiful and the red gate is a bonus.

DJan said...

Made me think of M and M candies. Wonder why that is? :-)

I can see why this one caught your eye. Looks like they're going to have to trim those trees or move the lane before long, though.

Carola Bartz said...

These pictures remind me a lot of Northern Germany - I had no idea that there are parts in Texas that look so similar. Well, we share the same planet, don't we?
What does the M stand for? Name of the ranch?
