Good Fences #106

Some folks wonder why many opt for the overhead ranch bar design for their gates.
Well, it gives them a place to put a name or ranch brand, plus it helps to strengthen and stabilize the gate posts. Over time, the weight of the swinging gates can pull at the posts and you might end up with something like this.
Plus, it just looks good. :)
Here's the link-up!

Good Fences #105

A rather plain looking entrance to a former homestead (no house remains on site, just a shed, propane tank, etc.).
 But if you look more closely, you'll see the old, rusty gate has a graceful design.
Sometimes beauty is where you least expect it - like a gem in the dirt. :)

Just a Typical Texas Toad?

A Texas Toad spotted outside the front door one day.
 I think toads are adorable.
 She was carrying pieces of freshly-mown grass on her back.
 Just a regular toad?
Anything but. She was the largest toad I've ever seen - a true Grandam of Toads. She was as large as my hand. I was in awe, and I wondered how old she was...
Two snails off to the right.
She was a very special encounter. After a few photos, I left her to her life.

March Snow in Texas?

 No, not this year (although, it has happened in the past...)
Just Gem shedding her winter coat (with a little help from me and the shedding blade.)

Into the afternoon sun, a few Longhorns rest along a fence line.

 Along with their co-resident donkey pal.
