Good Fences #73

Just an average looking country place with buildings and pasture fencing.
 But wait, there's a large metal saguaro cactus parked out in the field!
 Just a bit of Texas quirkiness.

The metal cactus goes with the fence! Rather industrial. :-)

Good morning, Tex!

I always enjoy the farm and pasture scenes! The metal saguaro is kind of neat, it is a little quirky. Great fence shots! Thanks for hosting, have a great day!

GreenComotion said...

Way cool Cactus and fence!
Now, is that a gas tank (white colored, cylindrical thing) that I see adjacent to the brownish structure (which might be the house)?
Thanks for hosting GF, Theresa!
Have a Wonderful Day!
Peace :)

The saguaro cactus is not even a Texas cactus, is it? LOL

DeniseinVA said...

I would like to know the story behind that metal saguaro cactus. Fun shots Theresa.

Michelle said...

LOVE that cactus!

A Quiet Corner said...

I think that s a tad more than quirky...it is downright COOL!!! I mean really...who wouldn't fence in something like that!?!...:)JP

Cranberry Morning said...

That's what I need, a big metal cactus sitting in my Wisconsin front yard! Love it! I like quirkiness as long as it's not covering the whole yard.:-)

Hehe, what a cactus!
Greetings from Germany

EG CameraGirl said...

I think this is the first "saguaro" I've ever seen in Texas. :)

Karen S. said...

That is one cool cactus for sure, and one that really won't need water!

Roan said...

Maybe those folks are from Arizona and needed a saguaro cactus to remind them of home. Cool find!

Rose said...

Quirkiness is what makes life fun! and I love this.

DJan said...

Okay then! I guess it's getting really dry out there, to grow a metal cactus! :-)

Pix Under the Oaks said...

Texas quirkiness is good!
Good Morning, Tex!

magnoliasntea said...

Now, that metal cactus is cool! Love it.

Kenneth Cole Schneider said...

This metal cactus is very nicely proportioned, and no Gila Woodpecker will ever spoil its looks! The old western movies often had Saguaro Cactus even though they were supposed to show Texas gunfights.

Gayle said...

Unique; quirky; same difference ;)

Sandra said...

Even "quirky" is bigger in TEXAS...

photodoug said...

A unique lawn ornament. Great find. Thanks for sharing.

Kerry said...

One of the local parks has a mini saguaro cactus like that, made for kids to climb on. I bet you could climb on this one too. :)

Midmarsh John said...

Simple fence but does the job. That cactus doesn't look too prickly anyway.

thepoodleanddogblog said...

Perfect "plant" for a drought.

Gosia k said...

FOREST SNAPPER said...

I used to have a sign on the side of my old house that said " coast path to the beach" the house was 60 miles from the nearest coast,but it made a lot of people smile as this cactus must do. Thanks for the link in offer, out golfing again !!!

Neat to see the metal cactus! Reminds me of other metal art I've seen. Thanks for hosting the linkup!

I don't think I've seen a metal cactus before.

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Theresa, Quirky Texans? No! Never. Ha. Having previously resided in Hunt County, I know of quirky artistic folks. Great snapshots. Have a fine Friday tomorrow!

Debbie said...

the cactus seems a little out of place and yes "quirky"!! so maybe it's not out of place at all....i mean it is texas, right??

Small Kucing said...

Wondering why there is a metal cactus there. Cute

pattisjarrett said...

The perfect cactus--no needles/spikes/prickly things. Nice fence; and farmery/ranchery.

Uppal said...

Nice wide view of the pasture grounds!

Grantham Lynn said...

I love ranch fences. I'm all out. But wanted to stop in and say 'Hi' and have a good party. XXOO.

Paul said...

Ha ha great find! Everything looks so lush and green in these pictures...

Halcyon said...

Gotta love Texans!

Stewart M said...

Thats a good cactus - does really, really well in droughts!!

Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

Meggie said...

Quirky,yes...but, it's Texas. Thanks for hosting another Good Fence.

Ms. A said...

I made a cactus cutout with a cowboy hat and lights for my Texas snowman, years ago, since we don't get snow around here very often.

Mary Kirkland said...

A metal cactus...very interesting.

NatureFootstep said...

nookworm said...

Makes one wonder.......

Bob Bushell said...

The cactus is a winner, I love it.

The word said...

Love fences

ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© said...

I'm late to the party, is it still going on?

;-)

Maggid said...

Ha!!! That stuff makes me bonkers . . I don't really know why.

There's a large silver-colored Sycamore on the Art Museum property . . it is graceful, for a large, metallic, leaf-less tree . . . still, makes me want to kick it . . . (sometimes my imaginary evil half - referred to as "Skippy" - wants to express itself in mischievous ways . . . both the metal tree thing and cactus are safe . . BUT, I'd rather - Much Rather - see one growing . . sigh)

Happiest Weekend to YOU!!!!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

I certainly hope they put lights on it during the holidays! Thanks again for your help this week :-)

Stephen Hayes said...

I hear cactus don't need much water, and this cactus probably need less water than most.

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

That is a saguaro you can take with you if you ever move. I sure wouldn't leave it behind.

Terry and Linda said...

The cactus says...Don't Fence me in!

Stephanie Faris said...

That's odd...but I think I like it! I wonder if they put Christmas lights on it in December.

Sally said...

That's something different, for sure. :)

Black Jack's Carol said...

Bill is with me and says, "Hi TexWis!" Thanks for hosting the meme that Carol loves contributing to. We both like "quirky" so that cactus was a winner.
