A Fence, A Fence, and a Railing

Now that we have Good Fences, I'm always on the lookout for something out of the ordinary, as fences go. I'm not finding any unusual fences, but I did find these.
This one is along the road leading to The Rez. There were lots of dandelions and tiny purple flowers along this fence.
 I found this fence bordering the pond at the Douglas Hart Nature Center. ..
...along with this walkway which leads to a view of the wetlands. We saw a lot of geese and ducks enjoying their wetland experience, so we were on our way to a closer view. That's Hubs up ahead. I'm always way behind. That darn camera of mine is always stopping to take pictures.

Linking to  Good Fences

i find myself oohing and aahing over some of the simplest barbed wire or mesh fencing if it has good weeds, blooms, posts, stays, etc. i like your finds!

thanks, dear roan!

Your fences are great!!

I'm always being left behind as I stop to photograph things. I love the peeling red paint on that fence, great photos.

I love your nature with fences♡♡♡
My dear husband takes me places where I ask him. As he has handicap with his both legs, he cannot walk long. He mostly waits me in the car patiently p;)

Sending you Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

What a nice spot. That old red fence has some history.

I'm admiring the dandelions. ;)) Who'da thought I'd be looking forward to dandelions?

Look up, look down, look all around. Always something beautiful along a fence line. Like the crooked fence posts in the first pic.

Phil Slade said...

You're right of course. There are so many uses and so many types of fence plus they are so useful to wildlife,birds in particular.

Sandra said...

love the flowers along the fence, love the red against those fantastic tree reflections. great composition on that one. and i have way to many photos of hubby in front of me, because my camera does the same thing.

Terrific finds Roan. I like the backdrop of the red railing at the nature center.

I like this 'wobbly' woven fence.

Don't you just love that red against the pond! And of course I like to see dandelions. They're one thing I can count on to grow up here in zone 3. :-)

Alica said...

More and more, I am struck by the beauty of simplicity. I like your fences today!

Susan said...

I like your fences Roan. Amazing how our cameras have a mind of their own isn't it ... what can one do!! Cheers now :D)

nookworm said...

I particularly like the red fence scene. Pretty area.

Mama Zen said...

Awesome reflection in that second shot!

Karen said...

A lovely area to explore. I like the red fence!

Naquillity said...

the purple dead nettle and dandelions lining that first fence makes for a great shot. love that second and third fence. it looks to lead to more great exploring. hope you enjoyed the ducks/ geese. have a great day~

Weeds and fences definitely go together.

Ida said...

Isn't it fun to look for fences. While these may not be unusual they are wonderful fences in their own way. The field of dandelions and other flowering weeds is lovely. I like the bright red fencing and the shot of your hubby walking down that trail is really nice. Had to laugh about your darn camera making you stop to take pictures!

These are all great fence images! We are seeing those little purple flowers in our fields around here, too.

I love the red fence bordering the pond - such a great accent!

I'm always behind the trailblazer, too, with my camera. I joke with my husband that I'm like a dog that has to stop and sniff
something every 3 feet! lol!

Beautiful photos of the fences and the spring surroundings. I love this time of year when the leaves aren't quite out yet (barely budding here!) but it's greening up. My camera does the same thing to me. :)

Jean | Delightful Repast said...

Roan, these are gorgeous photos! I love the look of bare or nearly bare trees. And fences.

I like the slash of red across the pond.

bailey-road.com said...

Nice photos of honest, purposeful fences. I do like the peeling red paint on the pond fence.

Brian King said...

The flowers along the first one are beautiful! Nice shots!

Beth @ "E." Lizard Breath Speaks said...

i love the red fencing. rustic & just perfect!! ( :

RobinfromCA said...

My darn camera keeps me way behind everyone else as well! I love the red fence! It's the perfect amount of worn and "look at me" right there out in the open!

Jennifer A. Jilks said...

Lovely fences!

Gail Dixon said...

Love the red fence! The last scene reminds me of our nature center in town. But even though I have the camera, I'm always the one ahead while hubby dawdles. I'm too impatient to go on to the next thing!

DeniseinVA said...

I like all of your fences Roan, great photos!

Raggedy Creations said...

lovely fences. I seem to have the same problem as far as my camera is concerned.

Stephanie said...

I love these fences especially the first one.

Meggie said...

Great fence photos...funny thing, my camera slows me down, too!

eileeninmd said...

Lovely fence scenes, Roan! I love the walkway at the wetlands. Beautiful photos, have a happy weekend!
