Good Fences #15

This is a pretty place on the edge of town. No good place to pull over and plenty of traffic speeding up on the Farm-to-Market road to leave 'market' and return to 'farm', so this May day I did my best with only my cell phone to capture the view.


A proliferation of blooms and birdhouses.


I like that Lone Star / Texas swing!

Beautiful capture I must say. Such a pretty place.

Love your lovely pickett fences. Also want to tell you HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY. 51..... Amazingly, I was just thinking how it felt like just a couple of years ago that I turned 50 and celebrated in NYC. That feels almost like yesterday. Enjoy every day, as the time does start really speeding along....

cobie en bas van Es said...

wel mooi zoveel kastjes bij elkaar.

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

It does look like a nice place but all I see is a lot of grass to be mowed. In all my travels through the states, I am always impressed with how these large lawns were always kept in good order and most always someone was out riding their lawn mowing tractor in doing so.

Marcoantonio Arellano said...

i love the flourishing flowers that are telling the fence...you can't keep me in. and the bird houses are lovely. they are a little higher end than my bird feeders but my birds still love me.

to all, have a wonderful and fullfilling celebration and to your mi amiga, Theresa (teresita, in spanish) gracias as always for sharing your eyes and heart, have a wonderful and fulfilling time with yours :-)

Mary Hone said...

That's very pretty. The other day we drove past a fence made from horseshoes and wagon wheels. I totally thought of you.

Debby Ray said...

What a cozy and comfortable looking place to call home...love a white pickett fence! I hope you have a fantastic 4th, Theresa!

Tanya Breese said...

oh i love that place!! so sweet!

Lynn said...

what a fabulous place...This would be one of my 'if only' spots :-)

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

Texans are fiercely loyal! We have a lot of flowers in our yard, but nothing like this!!

This is a pretty place, well taken care of. I was admiring that nice swing in the shade of the trees. Glad you pointed out the Lone Star, I would have missed it. The fence and flowers are gorgeous--and they have to be good folks if they're looking after the birds. :)

Nice fence and pretty flowers but a bit overdone with the bird houses. Do they charge the birds rent?

Jerry E Beuterbaugh said...

Years ago, a sweet young thing up in the northeastern part of Ohio said that she didn't want to get serious about me because she wanted a white picket fence life. When I told that I could come off of the truck for something like that with her, she still ran me off!
