Hello Tex, I like the bare winter trees. Pretty fence scene. Thanks for hosting, wishing you a happy day ahead!

Christine said...

Very neat fencing all around the field. The tree is so twisty and cool.
Thanks for hosting and have a great day!

Brian King said...

I like the low-center-of-gravity trees! Barbed wire is one of my favorites!

Cranberry Morning said...

Nice. And that reminds me of the time I heard someone call that 'Bob wire' and didn't know what they were talking about at first. :-)

DeniseinVA said...

Pretty view of fences upon fences. Love the trees.

Marit Sønstebø said...

Lovely bare trees! Here all trees are covered with snow :)

Mascha said...

A nice peaceful landscape...I like the fading colors.
Greetings from Germany

Breathtaking said...

Hello Theresa!:) Nice views over the fields and I like the winter colours in your shot.

Jeevan said...

Neat capture, as well as fencing!

Buttons Thoughts said...

Morning Tex a nice serene scene. Barbed wire is used sparingly around here. It has to do with population. Hug B

Lynn said...

That tree branch was made for sitting! :@)

It's me said...

Have à Nice day ...love Ria x

HOOTIN ANNI said...

Looks all so serene!! Beautiful.

EG CameraGirl said...

The tree in the distance has lovely graceful lines.

Maks said...

Beautiful fence Tex! I love it! I greet! :)

Lynne said...

When I I see one . . . there is that "barbed wire fence" moment that says to me . . .
"ah yes . . . now there is a fence . . . "

Dicky Bird said...

Even when an old fence is gone, the tree line remains. It's that way here anyway.

HOOTIN ANNI said...

ps....your comment you left for me regarding Tony on NCIS, my response: I thought of that too....it seems he has put on a lot of weight lately, due to heavy drinking maybe?

eViL pOp TaRt said...

Simple fences can be nice too, Especially with that wintery setting, it looks stark and all business.

Gayle atMuldoon said...

A simple fence places the emphasis on the unique tree.

Celestina Marie said...

Good Morning Tex, I love the cold winter scene when the trees are bare and the environment looks a bit frosty.
Love a barbed wire fence. Respect them for sure!
Have a great day and thanks for hosting. ;)

Beth Edwards, friends call me "E." said...

i see a post about "butterfly hearts" ... will go check it out to see what is going on there. happy Thursday!! ( :

DJan said...

That is a neat tree, and another distinctive Texas scene. :-)

Pix Under the Oaks said...

I know it is suppose to be about the fence but I LOVE the tree!
Good Morning!

Rose said...

I like that tree...love how that main part of it seems to dip and curve.

I am getting senile...almost forgot to link. Just day before yesterday totally forgot to link to Tuesday's Treasures, till Tom reminded me.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

It would be a beautiful scene to paint! Come on over for some bd cake! Hugs!

Debbie said...

nothing says texas like a barbed wire fence, i suppose they must be very effective. this one sure is pretty along with all those beautifully shaped trees!!!

even though it is winter and cold, it's still so pretty and you have a mostly blue sky. i always look for that as winter skies can get pretty gray!!!

my sign is on a railing type of fence, not a fence fence. but i should have included more of that, showing more of the wood. it was cold, i snapped a picture of the sign quickly to share with my sister and then realized i "could" use it here. so it is kinda' a fence, and you are so easy going!!! love ya' t!!!!!!

Crissi said...

Happy day!

Nancy Chan said...

Nice bare trees. I like the simple barb wire fencing.

messymimi said...

It looks cold and crisp, in the way that makes me want to bundle up better.

Author R. Mac Wheeler said...

I'm a tree nut. Trees have so much personality...with, or without leaves. :)

Andrea Priebe said...

It is very Texas and a lovely winter scene ... you are creeping up on 100 Good Fences. Have anything exciting planned?

Andrea @ From The Sol

Sandra said...

that tree is like MUSIC to me and sings a song to my heart

Mandy Southgate said...

Oh! It looks really icy! I bet it will be a gorgeous, green scene in the summer.

Julia said...

Bare trees and brown grass are keeping company while waiting for Spring. It will come soon.
Today is NATIONAL HUG DAY so consider yourself well HUGGED.

nookworm said...

That's one mean fence.

magnoliasntea said...

What a great gnarly tree in the photo.
Have a great Thursday!

Kathy said...

Is that a dusting of frost on the hill?

Bob Bushell said...

Barbed wire, not very good if you getting close to them, brilliant photos.

Primitive Stars said...

Morning, great picture, loving that twisted tree.Blessings Francine.

Liz Needle said...

Barbed wire abounds here too, though the trees are more often evergreen Australian trees. Nice scene.

LV said...

Sometimes, the simple things in life are the best. The trees are an eye catcher as well. Appears a home in the distance. May you have a great, warm weekend.

Jeannie Marie said...

Nicely composed. I love the muted colors and of course the fence!

S. J. Qualls said...

I've always loved that type of tree - alive or dead - something mystical about those branches.

Joseph Jameson-Gould said...

That curly branch! Is it just trying to get over the fence?

William Kendall said...

Those fields and trees are waiting on spring.

joeh said...

That tree's getting stabbed!

don said...

The stark looking tree fits the fence making a fine picture. I like it.

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

I like trees like this that show some state of confusion in their youth as to which way to grow. Reminds me of myself.

Nancy's Notes said...

Great Texas winter scene!

photodoug said...

Theresa, nice scene. Thanks for sharing.

Kenneth Cole Schneider said...

Nice composition! That dry grass looks ready for the stock to trample and eat.

Sally said...

I love that! Great photo, T! :)

xoxo

Gail said...

As a fence keeper I never grow tired of seeing pleasantly sturdy fences.

Miss Val's Creations said...

A peaceful scene!

Giga said...

Looking at the fence of barbed wire I always have concerns that animals can hurt yourself. Regards.

Linda Kay said...

Probably not high enough to keep the deer in or out.

Brk Trt said...

Skeletal form of winter, bleak yes but still beautiful.

Farm Girl said...

Forget snow, that is a normal scene to me. :)

ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© said...

Pretty cool!

We finally went from unreasonable warm to downright cold in W.V. Headed back to D.C. now before the blizzard (expected blizzard, that is...) snows us in.

Stephen Hayes said...

This landscape looks like it's patiently waiting to spring back to life.

Sylvia K said...

Beautiful capture, as always, and a great one for the day!! We have a lot of those "naked" trees and gray skies around us these days here in Portland!! I hope you have a lovely weekend!! Enjoy!!

matti juhani niilola said...

Hello,what kind of weather is there. Here is freezing cold... -27°C

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Theresa - please tell the tree or whisper across the grass that its clothes are returning ... cheers Hilary

Lowcarb team member said...

Sometimes a simple scene can bring so much pleasure - and this one does.
Thank you.

All the best Jan

♥ Łucja-Maria ♥ said...

Winter cold but snowless.
I like the delicacy of the sky.
Soon the grass grow.
Greetings from Poland.

Wayne said...

Nice, gentle rolling hills makes for a beautiful scene.

Beatrice Euphemie said...

Lovely trees and winter colors. I want to jump the fence and climb the tree! Hope you have a good day :)

Maggid said...

bet that tree could tell a great story.
bet it wishes it lived at your house . . .
bet it is now famous around those parts for being a featured tree . . .

(next thing you know, whistling ducks will be hangin' out there . . . )

FOREST SNAPPER said...

it looks a bit dry there.

Gerald (SK14) said...

The bare limbed trees are a joy to see through - not seen a lot of barbed wire for a long time.

Gosia k said...

nice fence in winter

Mary Kirkland said...

Pretty scene.

You know I am a lover of those naked trees! Great photo. Thanks for hosting :)

RedPat said...

I can't remember the last barbed wire fence I have seen!

Jeanne said...

The tree looks like it's dancing.

Robin Lamb said...

T, I love all those trees standing patiently for Springs arrival!

Black Jack's Carol said...

Bill and I say "hi" Theresa. Hope your day is going well. That is indeed, a very nice tree! My fence post is a bit "iffy" this week but we had fun doing it, as always. Take care!

Red said...

You just don't want to run into barbed wire fences.

carol l mckenna said...

Love the tree with its branches in a beautiful design ~ neat fence shot too!

Happy Weekend to you ~ ^_^

Revrunner said...

Shoot! You just reminded me of the "invisible fence" I just passed on my walk tonight. Should have had my camera. :-)

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Great old tree and fencing that does the job it's meant to do.

Jacquelineand.... said...

I love that uncluttered landscape and a good fence doing the job it was meant for.

Felicia said...

that is a neat character tree.

Barb said...

Those Texas trees look like they're dancing.

Justin Carf said...

Simplicity. Very nice.

pattisjarrett said...

That's a great tree! The barbed-wire fence is a good companion to it as it stands as a sentry over the pasture.

GreenComotion said...

Looks like NTX in winter - I love it.
Thanks for hosting GF.
Have a Beautiful Day, Theresa.
Peace :)

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

Your picture is almost like a painting -- It's perfect!

Linda said...

Hope your winter is going well. We are expecting a blizzard on Saturday. I'm ready for spring.

Jerry E Beuterbaugh said...

Since going through our great ice storm of 2007, I look at trees with limbs like that and cringe.

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,
Love the shape of that tree very much!
Hugs,
Mariette

I am so ready for green!

Hello !! .. A beautiful image . greetings

Pantherka said...

A tree with a fence look good.

Gail Dixon said...

That's a lovely image with the barren trees and pale blue sky. So glad to see you're still doing the fences. I'm gonna try to put one up from my new blog...not sure if it'll take, but I'll try. Hope you have been well! Have missed visiting.

Małgorzata Nowak said...

Piękne wygląda drzewo przy ogrodzeniu.Śliczny krajobraz. Serdecznie pozdrawiam.

Halcyon said...

Doesn't look as cold as here! We've still got some lingering snow on the ground.

Ida said...

I just realized I forgot to comment on your fence shot. That is a cool tree behind the fence. I like winter trees because you get to see them from a different perspective.

Meggie said...

Thanks for hosting...It's a great opportunity for us to connect with other fence photos....

jeannettestgermain said...

Tried several times on Thursd. to comment, but the comment form didn't open up - sorry! This looks like a few streets down the road:) Have a great weekend!

Stephanie said...

An interesting looking tree as well.

Karen S. said...

I'm a day late but got my fence post in just now. I really do like that tree, it reminds me of one you post sometimes, or maybe it's a new one? Very lovely!

John's Island said...

Hi Tex, Having grown up in Texas, the things I miss most are the friendly people, the BBQ, and the mesquite trees.

Paula said...

Nice straight good fence.

edenhills said...

Great scene. I sometimes wonder how those trees grow in all those curvy ways. Thanks so much for hosting Good Fences each week.

Linda at To Behold The Beauty said...

You have such interesting trees lining your fence rows!

Pietro and Cynthia said...

Very nice winter landscape!

rainfield61 said...

These trees dance too much to shed off their leaves.

Stewart M said...

That looks dry; or is always like that?

Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

I love all Your beautiful fences.

amanda | wildly simple said...

I wrote a post today with a boatload of photos.. all taken from a fenced / railed boardwalk. I checked, and go figure! Not a single shot with it in them.
One of these days!
Hope you are well down south!

They really are entertaining little animals.

genie said...

These trees are heavenly with that pale sky behind them. Sturdy fence, too.

genie said...

Your cute whistlers really do have personality. I wonder when you are going to have another mama and her babies po up for us to follow. These are some of the cutest pictures you have ever taken of them and your comments are hilarious. Hope all is well in your neck of the world. g

orchid Miyako said...

So sorry for my absence, I'm trying to catching up, my friend.

Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*

Helma said...

It might be a simple fence which shows you just the tree who stands is also gorgeous!
