Nice. Brings back memories of running barefoot on a trail like that when I was a kid, except it was on a farm in Wisconsin.

Very nice! Simple is good. I'm loving the beautiful greens right now!! This is the most amazing spring (and stormy) I can remember. blessings ~ tanna

And a nifty looking solar-powered gate, maybe? :-)

It is nice to have wagon wheels as decoration. And it's a lovely field also.

Jo said...

Hi Theresa, the wagon wheels round the entrance off nicely. Thanks again for hosting this meme. I love taking photos of fences, since meeting you! And so much history pops up in my head when I snap away. People ask whether these fences are for security or decoration; well, in SA they're for security! Have a great day. Jo

messymimi said...

Simple can be elegant.

KaHolly said...

Looks so inviting!

Karen S. said...

Absolutely, it looks great. We have a lot of wagon wheels around my neighborhood too. Even a couple of folks have the entire wagon, with flowers in the summer and empty boxes wrapped as Christmas presents in winter! A beautiful charm!

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

I think wagon wheels are a great addition to any entrance. Have a super day, Tex!!

John's Island said...

Congrats on Good Fences #57 -- Another nice one!

Brk Trt said...

Simplicity is sometimes all that is necessary.

4RRanch said...

I don't know, the wheels help but maybe not quite enough.

Kathy said...

What a great choice for Good Fences.

Sandra said...

sorry, i am out of fence shots and have not even been out to grab one in a drive by... hard to get fence pics from inside my house.

Jacquelineand.... said...

I love the simplicity, with the lush greenness of the background as a foil!

Pix Under the Oaks said...

I really like a wood fence! Dang I was going to get a Good Fences post going but I need to get out and click some fences. Don't give up on me Tex, I am going to get out there with this nice weather!

LOL! I had cakes to pick from for verify today... now THAT works for me!

CelestinaMarie@SouthernDayDreams said...

Hi Theresa, Great shot. I have always loved wagon wheels like this at an entrance.
Happy Good Fences!
Hugs, CM

Lynn said...

You probably told me this before... Is that solar panel enough to make the fence open? Amazing:@)

orchid Miyako said...

Dearest Theresa; These wagon wheels REALLY reminds me of Texas lately☆☆☆ (^_^)v
Love the wide green area and the just a few trees putting sweet accent there♪

I just finished dinner p;-) Wishing to have more time to visit friends...
Thank you very much for hosting.
Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*

i shed a tear for those wagons limping around without a fourth wheel

Dicky Bird said...

clean, simple statement - like it

Gayle said...

Nothing says Texas like a wagon wheel.
Have a great day!

Linda Kay said...

Curious that wagon wheels are always so popular along fence rows, and not just in Texas!

EG CameraGirl said...

I do like the look of the wagon wheels!

Shug said...

Morning.....I see a lot of wagon wheels at the entrance of drive ways....They do have a way of dressing up a entrance. Have a Blessed day..

Wagon wheels are indeed ubiquitous on Texas fences, and they're nice, too. :-)

Kenneth Cole Schneider said...

This proves that less can be more!

Makes a nice-looking entrance.

I always take a step back and envision pioneers on the Oregon Trail when I see wagon wheels. Love the fence shot.

Nancy Chan said...

Nice wagon wheels, beautifies the fencing.

Debbie said...

Such a pretty picture and it looks so simple and inviting.

Wagon wheels and fences seem to go together...wonder why? Thanks for the party

Georgette Sullins said...

Very nice and tidy.

Rose said...

Wagon wheels look nice anywhere. Looks like half the gate is missing...

Stephanie Faris said...

A little goes a long way!

Andrea Priebe said...

Yes, and simplicity fits the surroundings ... a nice inviting scene ...

Andrea @ From The Sol

Candy C. said...

Wagon wheels always say "rural" to me. :)

DeniseinVA said...

They make great decorations. They welcome you right through that pretty entrance.

Adam Jones said...

I love the old with modern in this picture. A solar powered wagon though would be awesome. No need for a horse. A cool looking fence though.

LV said...

Sometimes it is just the simple touches that are the best. As always, nicely done.

ladyfi said...

Cute wagon wheels.

happywonderer.com said...

I like a dressed up fence in the country. I can hear them say just keep driving till you see the two wagon wheels!

Felicia said...

yes it adds a real nice touch.

Mama Zen said...

Oh, I like those!

Christine said...

A great addition to the fence! Wagon wheels are a good reminder of all who went before.
Thanks for hosting another Good Fences link up.

Carletta said...

I have a couple of old wagon wheels my Dad gave me. I just don't have a fence. :)
Thanks for hosting my friend!

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

Nice, simple fence, the wheels are a nice complement.

Two wheels on my wagon, and still I'm rolling on...................

Simple is usually best!

Sylvia K said...

Oh, yes, you're right about the wagon wheels!! Simple but beautiful!! Terrific capture for the day as always!!

Maggid said...

ya know, my aunt used to say that same thing - then, a wagon wheel would go up and we all knew we lived in fancy diggs. . .

Tinna Sjoeberg said...

Very simple but also very nice.
Has a clean look :))

Have a beautiful day!

don said...

The addition of a couple of wheels enhanced the look of the gate. Nice one.

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

It is nice to see so much green in Texas. Not for long though probably.

Cute fence. Wagon wheels are around our area a lot. People have those planters in their yard like them too.

They do the job nicely!

Good recycling use, too!

Bethany Carson said...

The wheels do add a very nice element to an otherwise plain fence. Thank you for hosting!

joeh said...

We had a wagon wheel in front of our first house. Thought it was really cool. In retrospect it was kind of ridiculous and out of place in rural New Jersey. Anyway termites took care of most of it pretty quickly.

Stephen Hayes said...

Love the trees in the background.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

That's a good looking fence, I've always loved wagon wheels and these really add something extra special to the fence!

Alica said...

Yes...wagon wheels are a popular item here too! I like the rustic look to them.

Chandra Eswaran said...

Nice entrance with the wagon wheels.
Plain or not, I like the wide open space pictured, which gives me the warm fuzzies {no pun intended - I know it is North Texas :)}

Thanks for stopping by my site today.
Have a Beautiful Day, Theresa!
Peace :)

Ms. A said...

I'm guessing they don't have much to keep in, with that short gate. Love the wood fence and wagon wheels.

Marit Sønstebø said...

Very nice wagon wheels!

Lynne said...

I'd have to go on quite a hunt to find a wagon wheel around here!

Ida said...

I agree the Wagon Wheels really "jazz" the fence up. I think they are cool looking.

My name is Riet said...

What a busy group this is, wonderful. I love the site and the wagon wheel. Happy Good Fences.

Melissa said...

Classically understated :)

NatureFootstep said...

old wheels are great decorations :)

Pantherka said...

Good idea with the wheels of the car.

Nancy's Notes said...

Tex, I'm so excited about joining in for Good Fences today! I've so enjoyed looking at a gazillion ranch photographs to find that perfect fence photo! I believe I did! Hope you like it!

Thanks for hosting, my friend.

DIMI said...

Hello Tex! I love those wagon wheels!!They look so preety on the fences!
Dimi...

Nancy J said...

Old wheels, but I think there is a solar panel there, and maybe the gate opens with a remote!!! But those wheels make it go from ordinary to special, I like it.

Em Parkinson said...

Love the two wheels in this one. Great shot!

nookworm said...

Inderstated is much more classy. Neat looking.

Jerry E Beuterbaugh said...

An old friend of mine had a coffee table made out of an old wooden wagon wheel back in the 70s. I have always wanted one since.

Margaret Adamson said...

HI Tex Yes the wheels are lovely on either side of the entrance. Sorry you are having problems with load my photos but probably you server is a bit slow. I know I do have a lot of shots more often thatn not but if I don't show them at the time, I would never show them as I always haae a lot of photos waiting to show! Be propared to quite a lot tomorrow as well!!! Many thanks for hosting.

We still have Wagon Wheels for eating. Chocolate biscuits but a little smaller than those in your photo.

The wagon wheels add the perfect touch, and a good size, too.

Wish I had a wagon wheel for my front yard...they are the perfect western motif!

And it certainly helps if you've got green grass and nice trees behind the fence.

Birdman said...

I like it. Simplicity rules the day.

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Theresa, Yep, does seem to be a commonly seen thing for ranches to have a wagon wheel motif on their gate or fence. Have an extra-nice Friday!

They certainly do dress it up! Thanks for hosting each week.

Absolutely love those! Welcome!!

Thanks for the fun prompt.

We had an old wagon wheel but it rotted away.

Small Kucing said...

lovely idea. One man's junk is another man's treasure :)

I love them too! They make me think about the "old days" and horse drawn carriages. There are a lot of wagon wheels outside houses here too.

The result is very pretty though!

Mariette
