It's another place I wish could talk...it is so appealing to me.

I love these rural scenes. Thanks for hosting Teresa and have a great day :)

Pix Under the Oaks said...

Good Morning Tex!
Wish somebody would give it a mowing.
Kinda like the single section off wood fence!

Buttons Thoughts said...

Morning Tex this is neglected but it still has character and I am sure in its day, it was something beautiful. Hug B

Christine said...

A haunting, but lovely old place! Great photo find for Good fences!
Thanks so much for hosting!

EG CameraGirl said...

Probably the owner have too much to do and too little time!

Brian King said...

I hate to see a place neglected, but I do like the lone section of fence!

Maggie said...

I wonder what the history of the place would reveal? I always want to know the back story, guess I'm just nosy!
Thanks for hosting GF, it's fast becoming my favourite meme in blogland.

magnoliasntea said...

Lovely fence piece, and I would move there and take care of the place in a heartbeat if the rest of our family would go, too. Tenn. is getting to crowded for me!

Roan said...

Makes me want to move in and give it a little TLC. Peaceful.

Gayle said...

Man may be neglecting the structures but nature is doing her thing and reclaiming her space.
I like the sun and shadows of the photo.

Jo said...

Great find for Good Fences, Theresa. Thanks for hosting this meme. Jo

CelestinaMarie@SouthernDayDreams said...

Good Morning, Looks like it could or once was a charming spot. The fence looks like a hitching post for horses.
Great shots. Have a great day and always thank you for hosting. Hugs, cm

Birdman said...

It's Thursday already?
... and one of the shortest fences in the known world.

photodoug said...

While perhaps short on stature, the fence makes a bold statement. Thanks for sharing.

Clairejustine oxox said...

Great find, love fence shot!

Thanks for hosting

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

It looks like it needs work with not much fence to keep things in...or out! Hugs!

Debbie said...

awwwww but there is still a "sweetness" about this place. it's a homestead someone once loved, there is lots of potential there!!!

Anvilcloud said...

I like these two: nice comp and exposure.

Bob Bushell said...

Brilliant fences, I am terribly upset due neglect.

Sandra said...

I was about to say I will take it if they don't want it, then I remembered you get scorpions in your shoes and sink... I will keep my wolf spider.

Mildred said...

I always wonder "what happened" when I see a place run down like this.
Thanks so much for hosting and I hope your day is a good one.

Miss Val's Creations said...

It looks so sad but like this location can tell many stories!

bj said...

Poor olden place...and at one time, it was probably a happy place.

Marit Sønstebø said...

Nice photo's!

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

Needs someone to rescue it!!! ;) blessings~ tanna

Nancy Chan said...

Simple fence yet unique in its own way. Looks like a pretty place before being neglected.

Sharon Wagner said...

A mini fence.

Author R. Mac Wheeler said...

I can feel the radiating heat.

LV said...

So sad. However that's what happens when those that loved it are gone and the younger folks do not want it. Good to see each week.

♥ Łucja-Maria ♥ said...

Overgrown, neglected but very beautiful.
I really like this scenery.

Kenneth Cole Schneider said...

Not sure whether the fence is dysfunctional or non-functional. I guess the former, for it still serves as a convenient perch for the birds, and in fact adds an aesthetic touch to a rather dismal scene.

thepoodleanddogblog said...

It makes me want to know the story, who owns it and why are they neglecting it.

carolann said...

Thanks for being a Host. Enjoyed your show and tell.

NatureFootstep said...

beautiful image with the little fence and the pole in the back of it. Love to see the plant climbing on the pole.


Thanks a lot for finding and fixing my link :)

Wayne said...

Awww, it looks lonely and in need of a little TLC

"...E...", from VA, Beth said...

i sure hope it will get some love soon. looks like a neat place. quiet. calm. i think? have a cool day. ( :

Sylvia K said...

Yep, I think Wayne is right -- just a tad lonely and in need of TLC!! Don't we all!!!

bon bon said...

Still, kind of romantic though...

William Kendall said...

It looks like it would need a lot of work!

ladyfi said...

A lone fence - nice!

John's Island said...

Hi Tex, Congrats on Good Fences #70. I think your photos today tell the story ... Out there in ranch country ... things just don't seem right without some kind of fence. Have a great weekend!

Tamago said...

Nice pictures! But yes, very much neglected...I wonder if anyone is living in the house.

Karen S. said...

I do hope it's filled with life again.

DIMI said...

Hello Tex!
What a lovely old place!
Nice fence!Have a lovely day!
Dimi...

Felicia said...

my favorite kind of fence. sad to see the neglect.

Jacquelineand.... said...

Someone needs to rescue the poor place!

Dayle said...

I couldn't resist linking an old post to this fun party.

Linda at To Behold The Beauty said...

When I see a place like this, I can't help wondering at the circumstances that led to its abandonment. Nice section of fence, though. Small, but nice.

Ida said...

Wouldn't goats have a grand time here! - Is the place vacant? - Sometimes around here you'll see place like this and people are actually living in them, they just don't take care of the property.

4RRanch said...

That little section of fence would sure look pretty with some flowers in front of it.

Jeevan said...

But still attentive to shoot! Nice capture

S. J. Qualls said...

Sad to see a house left alone, a fence unfinished. There has to be a story behind that.

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

Hey, that's just what I'm looking for. How much? :)

Busy Bee Suz said...

The (almost) lone post!!!

Brk Trt said...

Makes one think what was so bad that this happened.

Bas said...

geweldig mooie foto,s van een gebied dat terug is aan de natuur.

Phil Slade said...

What a lonely old fence. If I had enough dough I'd like to buy that place.

It's me said...

Wowwwwww!!!!....enjoy summer Darling......love Ria x!

ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© said...

Looks like a good spot for find critters pictures, TWG.

mick said...

Great photo - it may be overgrown and neglected but the fence looks strong.

Mary Kirkland said...

The place still looks really neat.

Carola Bartz said...

That is very neglected - how sad. Do people live there or it like an abandoned place?

Gosia k said...

waht a pity it is abandoned..

RedPat said...

That is sad to see, Tex!

Gail said...

I love old fences!!

Paula said...

Reminds me of a gate at the ranch. There is no fence attached to it on either side.

Filip Demuinck said...

The remains of a fence. :-)

Greetings,
Filip

Stephen Hayes said...

This property need some love and attention to put it in shape.

messymimi said...

It looks lonely.

nookworm said...

I'd like to know..... WHY? HOW? What's next for this place?

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,
That is always a very painful sight...
Hugs,
Mariette

Pantherka said...

It's a shame, otherwise lovely place.

Our photos said...

That is a wonderful place !

Andrew Fulton said...

Wonderful to see..

Lynn said...

One lonely little fence and I'll bet it was a busy little place at one time:@)

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Well that fence won't keep anyone in! Yes it does look neglected.

Michelle said...

Looks like it just needs a little love.

Julia said...

It looks like the place has been abandoned. I wonder what the story is that it became so neglected.
Have a lovely weekend Theresa.
HUgs,
JB

Nancy said...

You could write a book on just this picture....Wonder about all the history of this place.....

Red said...

Once a place is abandoned, it doesn't take long to fall into disrepair.

eViL pOp TaRt said...

Abandoned, neglected country places do retain their charm

Chandra Eswaran said...

Though the outside is in shambles, may be the home on the property is in good shape.
Well let's hope for that.
Thanks for hosting GF, Theresa!
Have a Beautiful Day!
Peace :)

Randy said...

Love that first shot.

Bethany Carson said...

That's one lonely section of fence! Enjoyed the photos.

pattisjarrett said...

The place looks so sad, in need of someone to come along and apply some TLC. The fence sections still looks good!

Uppal said...

Lovely Scene!

Gert said...

I love the solitude of that one piece of fence....

Paul said...

Nothing a bit of paint and a good lawn mowing couldn't fix! :)

Lynne said...

I liked this all alone fence under the tree . . .
#70 . . . wow!

diane b said...

This bit of fence is not giving up.

McGuffy Ann Morris said...

All it needs is some TLC. I hope it gets it.

Halcyon said...

Guess this fence is not really doing its job anymore. Sort of a sad sight.

Ms. A said...

A good mowing would change the entire look of the place!

Ratty said...

It kind of looks like that around the back of my property, but with more odd contraptions around the place.

jeannettestgermain said...

here is a latecomer, because of being together with guests:) Yeah we see enough of the neglected properties (not entirely their fault, for there is still a drought in California)

Margaret Adamson said...

i am sure it was cared for at one time. Thanks for hosting. Have a lovely weekend

Trevor Woodford said...

I have always liked images that show the power of nature as it reclaims what man has 'borrowed'.....The first image here shows that nicely...

Judy said...

Awe, places like this just tug at my heart.

Stephanie Faris said...

So much potential, if someone who cared about it owned it. I guess places like that are relics of times past.

MICKAN from QUEENS FIELD¸.•°`♥✿⊱╮ said...

It's lovely to see the shadows☆

I got some wild pork at home now ...

Linda said...

It does look neglected but I bet the bunny rabbits love it!

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Tex, Sad-looking property. I hope it gets its needed maintenance sooner than later. Have a wonderful weekend!

Lux G. said...

Looks peaceful.

Janey and Co. said...

When I see places like this..I feel a bit sad, because at one time this was someone's dream come true.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Yes it looks like something is missing.

Cranberry Morning said...

Nice, with country lane! I was disappointed not to get a fence post up this week. :-((

Cheri Savory Spoon said...

It sure is pretty, I could live there.

Terry and Linda said...

Love these!

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Probably was a nice place once upon a time. Hope this heat isn't getting to you. Have a nice weekend!

Maggid said...

Oooh, a pupster would love to smell around in that big yard!

Betty Manousos said...

a lone fence. love that bottom photo. simply beautiful!

Kovács Miklós said...

Quite wild farm, isn't it?

Jerry E Beuterbaugh said...

Yes, that could be considered a fence.

Black Jack's Carol said...

Hi Theresa.. looks like I'm last again :) I guess I see romanticism in neglect. It's as though nature's greenery wants to grow up around the fence to protect and comfort it.

Joseph Jameson-Gould said...

Wow... that bit of fence makes the whole place look so nostalgic

Lowcarb team member said...

If fences could talk ... I'm sure this fence could tell us a good story about the life and people it may have seen !

All the best Jan

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

That's all that's left of someone's dream. Rather poignant. Makes a very interesting picture though.

Stephanie said...

Love the lone fence image. Sorry I missed out on linking yesterday. Could not be helped. Going to go and see some fences I missed then. Have a great weekend, Teresa!

orchid Miyako said...

Dearest Theresa; So sorry for my belated comment, Dear friend. Sure is sad seeing these neglected places. But as a picture, I liked to see huge place left natural with beautiful clouds :-) I think it another nice scene with fence♪

ps. I LOVED to read your comment "the blooms remind me of fried eggs with yolk and egg-whites" p:-) To tell the truth, I've never tried fried eggs,haha. Something I should try♡♡♡ 
Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*

bailey-road.com said...

It's still a pretty scene.

sonia a. mascaro said...

I love these rural scenes, even looking it has been abandoned. I wonder why it became so neglected...

I like this little fence! It's just right. I want to sit on it.

A sad Sight!
