I like the look of abandoned places even though it's too bad they are no longer used. This one is a bit eerie.

Christine said...

Sweet old place that would have been pretty in its former glory.
Thanks for hosting and have a great day!

Hello Tex, great fence find, the pretty yellow tree pops onto the photo. Thanks for hosting! Happy Thursday, enjoy your day!

I don't have any fence 'posts' this week, but made certain I stopped by to see what you shared. You never disappoint. I like the charm.

genie said...

Now this fencing looks like home grown to me. Not as pretty as the fancy ones but still very functional.

Tanya Breese said...

looks so lonely :(

A great setting for The Walking Dead

;O)

Nancy Chan said...

Even though the place has been abandoned, the gate and fencing are still standing and serving its purpose.

It has a very Texas look to it, even after all these years of disuse. :-)

Cranberry Morning said...

Nice! A gated community. I like old, abandoned buildings. Have a great weekend, Theresa.

GreenComotion said...

I like the solitary tree with leaves and the gate.
Perhaps, someone will use the place.
Thanks for hosting.
Have a Great Day, Theresa!
Peace :)

Felicia said...

It would be great if someone would fix it up.

Rose said...

I think this place has a key to my heart...there is something about that is so appealing to me!

EG CameraGirl said...

Oh, kinda sad that this place is falling apart.

Giga said...

It is a pity that something people forced to leave their homes. Regards.

Wayne said...

I hate to see places like this, but I like the rustic look.

Sandra said...

I could live in this old house behind that fence and be really happy.

S. J. Qualls said...

I would almost bet that in summer it's a welcoming place.

William Kendall said...

It still is pretty.

Sally said...

I love it. Sure would be fun looking around.

These forgotten places are sad to see. They always make me wonder at the place's people who have lived there.

I can't imagine that someone won't discover this place and restore it.

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

Looks like a neat place in its day. Might be a bit more work than I am up for to move into today.

magnoliasntea said...

If only it was here in Tenn., I'd love to make a cute little place of it.

messymimi said...

Children used to frolic there, it looks sad and lonely. You are right that some beauty remains, and that might be what makes it sad.

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Theresa - that's rustic ... and a bit woe-begone ... still an interesting fence .. cheers Hilary

Sylvia K said...

The yellow trees make all the difference, but it's still a rather sad place -- makes one wonder about it's history! Hope you're getting ready for a lovely weekend!!

Mama Zen said...

I like it!

Gail said...

And the fence stands strong.

Miss Val's Creations said...

The touches of gold foliage give this property some much needed cheer!

Liz said...

I am always so intrigued with old abandoned places!

No matter the subject, your photo skills brings out the beauty. A good home sight in need of tender care. Enjoy this warmer weather.

Rustic charm.

jeannettestgermain said...

Yes, this is how half of the fences look like here:) In non-rural areas it seems fences often have a decorative function. Happy weekend Teresa!

Mildred said...

Hi, I'm always intrigued by the old, forgotten places. I often see beautiful roses, daffodils etc. coming up around the house in spring time...makes me sad.

Linda at To Behold The Beauty said...

It makes an interesting autumn picture. The bit of yellow in the trees almost pops from the picture, offsetting the bleakness that is waiting in the wings for the last leaves to fall. Wonder what it looks like in the spring.

Laura. M said...

Fall color makes nice, Teresa ;)

Barb said...

I'm amazed at how many fences there are in TX!

These slightly neglected places are often teeming with wildlife unlike over-tidied gardens and public spaces. Thanks for letting me join in today Tex.

Mary Kirkland said...

Indeed it does.

Oh yes, this is just the kind of quaint place that says, home sweet home. To me.

It IS beautiful. I bet there are many interesting life stories floating around this home and property.

Debbie said...

Justin Carfagnini said...

A little love and that place would look beautiful!
