Good Fences #27

I'd title this one, "Can I give you a lift?" Trees grow up, regardless of fence stays.

That's Snow-on-the-Prairie blooming all over that field.

Here's the link-up!

Ann, Chen Jie Xue 陈洁雪 said...

I can't figure out, was the pole put through the branches?

Marcoantonio Arellano said...

this may be a hopeful sign...in spite of man's latent burden upon this earth nature will circumvent and survive.

a few years from now that piece of fence will look like a small piece of wood stuck in the sprawling branches of a grand tree

Terri said...

Wow- that fence will be gone in a few years if they don't cut that tree down.- is it a bodark?

Optimistic Existentialist said...

Beautiful! And I love all of that Snow-on-the-Prairie in the background.

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

WOW! That's impressive! And, the snow is beautiful! blessings ~ tanna

Dianna said...

It's rare that you see a tree grown up around a fence. I can only recall seeing it once or twice; it definitely catches your eye!

Beth, ...".E." Lizard Breath Speaks said...

very calming shots above.

you will never guess what i did "T", i am going to link up with you at this party ... but for some silly reason - i have it posted tomorrow Friday. oops, oh well ... guess i will still have a chance. oh well ... it is the thought that counts. ( :

Duckbutt said...

The tree will grow, regardless!

Bethany Carson said...

Neat how trees will grow over and around anything in their journey toward the sun. As a friend of mine used to say, "Determination gets you there!"

McGuffy Ann Morris said...

I am always amazed and fascinated by how nature tries to adapt both to man and itself.

EG CameraGirl said...

It tickles me when I see fences with trees groing in them!

Roan said...

Now that's a great find!

Blackberry Lane said...

Great photos and I have never seen the snow on the prairie plants. Thank you for hosting.

Molly The Wally said...

That is a tree with character. Have a tremendous Thursday.
Best wishes Molly

Revrunner said...

Appropriate name for those wildflowers.

Tina Fariss Barbour said...

Love that tree. It fascinates me how trees--and other plants--will grow in spite of what's around them.

sonia a. mascaro said...

Just amazing photos, Tex!
Love the tree!

messymimi said...

You cannot stop water from going where it wants and you can't stop trees from growing where they want!

ImSoVintage Laura Walker said...

love those gorgeous flowers behind that rustic fence. xo laura

Jan n Jer said...

Hey girl...hope all is well in your neck of the woods. I love the field of white...it does look like snow! Nice shot!

Ileana said...

The tree belongs to the fence!

DJan said...

They grew up together. Wonder if they shared their secrets, too. :-)

Pom Pom said...

That's amazing! Great contribution to Good Fences!

Stephanie Faris said...

Trees definitely just grow around any obstacles in their way. There's a life lesson in that, I think!

Irma said...

Beautiful fence.
The white flowers on the prairie are beautiful.

Judy said...

I love it!!

DeniseinVA said...

Resilient! Great photos :)

William Kendall said...

Snow on the prairie? That's definitely not something we've heard of here.

Debbie said...

grow where you are planted...there are no obstacles, just challenges!!

great find for today. trees and a fence, your 2 favorites!!

Halcyon said...

That's a great find!

Cranberry Morning said...

Ha! That is a great pic!!

Jeevan said...

Beautiful shots on fence! A tree, as well natures gives its wealth equally and no one can stop it nurturing others by making borders and fence.

Beth said...

Such a unique fence!

Montanagirl said...

Wow, that's a great find on the fence shot - I like how the tree grew right up supporting that pole. Nice catch!!

Carola Bartz said...

This is so cool, Theresa. What a wonderful find.

Barb Brookbank said...

Now that is amazing!

photodoug said...

What determination. Thanks for sharing.

orchid Miyako said...

Hi, Dearest Theresa; Wonderful capture and nice matching title♡♡♡ And I DO wish to see your Snow-on-the-Prairie, must be really gorgeous☆☆☆
I was kind of tired sorting out my empty late parents' house, just starting to check what I need to keep. I'll go to bed now and see friends tomorrow :-)
Thank you very much for hosting.

Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*




sweetdaysundertheoaks.com said...

Now that is a great fence and tree Tex! The white flowered field is awesome!

janiceadcock said...

Funny how that happens! My 96 year old mom, farmer at heart, always complains about folks letting their fence rows 'grow up'.

Andrea Priebe said...

How ingenious is nature ... this is nothing short of awesome, Theresa.

Andrea @ From The Sol

Small City Scenes said...

That tree has been working that fence for quite awhile. Neat! Love the wildflowers too. MB

happywonderer said...

Such a unique fence post. :)

It works for the tree and the fence.

Preety white blooms!
Dimi...

Leovi said...

Yes, nice catch, beautiful!!

bailey-road.com said...

Great shots. Interesting, pebbly bark on the tree. Love the Snow on the Prairie too.

Ian H said...

Our "Snow on the Prairies" is a little colder than yours!

don said...

I like your fence shot. You found a very interestiion problem area with an interesting fence solution.

Icy BC said...

Love the title, and that is just awesome! It sure gives it a lift :)

Gerald (SK14) said...

ah that's a lovely find

Sallie Rainville said...

A tree's gonna do what a tree does, no matter what stands in the way! And I think that's good.

ellen abbott said...

snow on the prairie. I always wondered what that was called. It's blooming here too. but it's not really blooms, right? it's just white leaves.

Gosia k said...

fence surounded by wilderness

Felicia said...

what great images. Yes it's amazing the power of the trees.

wonderful images.

Lois said...

Nothing is going to get in the way of that tree. I've never seen Snow-on-the-Prairie before. It's beautiful!

Phil Slade said...

A good find there. Trees don't give up easily do they?.

Sylvia K said...

Love that tree!! And I agree with Lois, nothing is going to get in its way!! The Snow-on-the-Prairie is beautiful and I've never seen it before either!! Great post/pics as always!!

ladyfi said...

Nature always finds a way!

Birdman said...

Been in the high dessert of Oregon for a week. Boy, have I seen fencing for you. Fence after fence after...

Margaret said...

Yes, they do! And fence lines would look so forlorn without them…

Stephen Hayes said...

Thanks to that tree, that one post will be there when the rest of the fence is long gone.

ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© said...

Part of the tree, part of the fence!

Gail said...

Very cool. I found Dad through the years cut shapes to help with the fence and also used the trees.

Around here when you cut a tree expect surprises for the chain saw inside!

Gail Dixon said...

That is a super find! The snow on the prairie is awesome too.

Karen S. said...

We can never underestimate the power of a tree! That field of snow on the prairie is just beautiful! Hmm, it must be a gentle reminder for some of us! Yikes.

Jo said...

Oh I love fences, posts and trees all mushed together. What a beautiful image! Thanks, Theresa, for your very kind comments on my puppy posts!We all appreciate it. Blessings. Jo

Lois Evensen said...

How very cool!

Karen said...

Cool find!

holdingmoments said...

I think it's great how nature doesn't let much get in its way.

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi TWG - love the tree with its natural cross bar, from one of its predecessors lives ... fun fence area ..

Cheers Hilary

MarkD60 said...

Great fence post! (Post about fences!)

Marie said...

Made me smile! :-) Great shots! Love the Snow on the Prairie in the field too.

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Theresa, Glad the tree still has its limbs. In many places, off they would come. Have an excellent afternoon and evening.

Ida said...

That's really cool looking and not something you would see every day.

Brenda Kay Ledford said...

This is an awesome finding. I love the snow on the prairie. What lovely flowers.
I always enjoy visiting your blog.

Ms. A said...

Look at all that snow with that tree and fence!

Pamela Gordon said...

That is a really cool fence and tree. The flowers are really pretty. I hope you have a great weekend.

Black Jack's Carol said...

I do believe this will be one of my favourites in your "good fences" series. Beautifully photographed and titled :)

Linda Kay said...

So the question is...is the tree holding up the fence, or the fence holding up the tree?

Robin Lamb said...

T, that's cool! Wonder how long that took!

RedPat said...

That's wonderful!

Karen Schurr said...

Like the composition of the tree and the fence with the "snow" in the background. Very nice.

Bob Bushell said...

Strange but true, great likeness.

Elaine said...

Love the tree growing around the fence! Amazing the places trees will grow. The Snow-on-the-Prairie is wonderful too--it must really be a sight to see.

S. J. Qualls said...

Searching for the sun, no matter what's in the way. Cool shot!

Margaret Adamson said...

Wonderful find

Marit Sønstebø said...

Lovely photo!

eViL pOp TaRt said...

The tree was strong as it grew!

Great pictures!

Fjällripan said...

The threes looks like they hug each other :))

Mama Zen said...

Cool find!

CJ said...

I never saw or heard of "Snow-on-the-Prairie" but what an appropriate name. I did think it was snow, at first.

Interesting that the tree grew up around the fence, but then Ilve seen trees growing in other unusual ways & places. I have a photo of a small tree growing on a church steeple.

Spare Parts and Pics said...

Nice find, and a great rustic fence!

Paula said...

Maybe a little extra support here?

Mary Kirkland said...

Now that's something you don't see everyday.

Primitive Stars said...

Love that fence, really neat.Francine.

Kenneth Cole Schneider said...

Your photos remind me of my stay in Costa Rica, where the growing conditions are so favorable that the fence posts spring into life.

Lynn@Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

Mother Nature is amazing:@)

Our photos said...

Nice fence, but the field of white flowers is even more 'nice' !

Stephanie said...

That is pretty cool how that happens like that. Great find!

Chandra said...

Hi Theresa,
The trees look like they are dancing together.
Really neat!
The fence is a nice accompaniment :)

Peace :)

Beth Niquette said...

I adore this fenceline. The trees are just perfect, as is the title. :D

michaelswoodcraft said...

Pretty cool! I saw a fence post where a crape myrtle had grown around it at the bottom!

pattisjarrett said...

Good name for the fence lift. People often don't think ahead when they plant a tree--or install a fence, apparently. :)

Stewart M said...

Nice picture - there are some remarkable images of nature taking over old buildings (and a piano) on Facebook at present - its remarkable what a tree can do given enough time.

Cheers Stewart M - Melbourne

Flat Creek Farm said...

That is such an interesting "relationship!" We have a few similar fencing issues here around the farm. Your TX find takes the cake. Love the pics, as always! -Tammy

Grandma C said...

That's a great find. I love tree oddities.

Red said...

Now that is rally cool. I've seen trees grow around lots of wire.

edenhills said...

That does look like a recipe for disaster.

Randy said...

I like your title for the first one.

CelestinaMarie@SouthernDayDreams said...

Wonderful fence and stately tree finding it's way to grow around the fence.
Love the snow on the prairie!!
xo

LV said...

Sorry, so late but have had a busy day. I love the tree fence/tree and pray that if we get snow, it will be a thin layer like these flowers.

Jeanne said...

I love this!

Fly Girl said...

How beautiful! Does the tree affect how the fence can be used or does it strengthen it?

Linda said...

Neat pictures!

Sally Crowe said...

Very cool. :)

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,
Love that body-building weight-lifting tree!
Hugs,
Mariette

Rita said...

So funny! Talk about a slow-motion lift! :)

Cheri Savory Spoon said...

Nature is amazing!

biebkriebels said...

You're right the fence is lifted up by the tree, funny picture.

Lynn said...

Amazing-I've seen different things trees have kept in their arms, held for eternity...quite poetic I think.

Jerry E Beuterbaugh said...

It would seem quite apparent that maintenance is not a priority for that outfit.

Birdman said...

Trying to take some horse shots the other... I was 'shocked' by an eletrical fence. How much zap do they have anyway? You will know, I bet.

SweetMarie said...

nature doesn't stop. :) great pics!
hope you have a great day!

Pantherka said...

Gorgeous!

Rose said...

These are great! I wonder how long it will stay there...

Julia said...

Trees that grow around fences have minds of their own. Great photos.
Hugs,
JB

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

You always have such a good eye for seeing the unusual! How neat! I'm a little late...but back to visit some more! Enjoy your weekend girlfriend! Hugs!

Laura. M said...

Vayaaaa... grew between the fence!!

Helma said...

What prevents a separate fence Theresa. The tree has grown through the fence or the gate they have pulled through the tree? A very nice and very special series of photographs of this fence:-)

Brian King said...

That's very cool! Beautiful field, too!
