Good Fences #132

An estate in town that has a wide, sweeping lawn
   with grand trees and a wonderful, old, iron fence
and a wonderfully-framed old gate.
(A lousy zoom and crop in an attempt to show some detail, but at least it caught the rocking chair on the front porch). :)
Here's the link-up.

There is unmistakable charm in wrought iron fences. I photograph them whenever i see them because they are frequently unique as the person that creates them

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

A grand place with just the right touches of a perfect setting. Love the rocking chair. One of my fondest memories from my grandparents was sitting on the little porch and enjoy the old rocker.I do not think you could make a bad photo if you tried. Wish I had your skills.

joeh said...

That is my kind of porch. A good glass of port, a good cigar and good conversation after dinner...would be brilliant!

That gate is very beautiful and ornate. I also love the loop-de-dos of the fence tops.

Such elegance, the greenery is tremendous, but oh the old trees they pretty much take center stage! I'm trying to get this Mac (my daughter's computer understood, it's a wee bit different than my PC laptop at home! So not sure if I can add my link!

I'd love to have a huge yard with an iron fence.

I know it wouldn't keep Bambi out, but the dawgs would have a chance to give Bambi the business.

I'm lagging this week, with no photos of fences or much of anything. After the death of our kitty, Winston, I'm feeling like being online, but I wanted to stop by and thank you for your visit to I'd Rather B Birdin' this weekend.

And....fantastic gate.
