Fences and Fields

Feeling nostalgic, I turned down an old country road...
 ...and found this fence.

 Linking to Good Fences

 On down the road I passed what once was my farm.
 There is a wheat field beyond those wild flowers.
The pond is to the right of that silo way over yonder. I have had sellers remorse since the day the papers were signed.

Lovely series, I love all the greenery on the first two shots with the fence. I can only imagine how hard it was for you to sell your farm. Wishing you a happy day!

Handy to have a tree as a post but sort of messes with the tree. Beautiful farm.

Oh, that was sad to read. Maybe you best not take that turn down the country road no more. Thanks for vising my Wheels fence.

beautiful farm and isn't it great that you can drive by and remember all the good times and not remember all the work required...but...there is no compare to good farm living... or raising...

Felicia said...

Oh my I can see why you have seller remorse. gorgeous country scenery. at least you are close by and can still visit.

Rose said...

Oh, I can certainly understand the seller's remorse! Beautiful area.

Ginny said...

Is it no longer there? Did they take it down? I know the feeling of something that was a huge part of your life being gone, so sorry!

Beautiful series, lovely views.

I can only imagine how difficult that must have been. I hope your reasons were good ones and took you to a good place. The fence is so subtle ... at least until you run into it. Nice nostalgic pictures, Roan.

Beautiful! I can see why it's so difficult not to be there. Gorgeous fields.

Sounds like you must have had an abundance of good memories at the former place. Lovely images, and I like the barbed wire fence.

Beautiful, peaceful images :)

It is a lovely place, I'm hoping where ever you moved to is just as wonderful in its own way.

CJ said...

Lovely farm. I bet you miss it.

I have this crazy idea that I'd love to live on a farm, but really, I don't want to do all the work to take care of one. If I owned one, I would probably rent the land to someone else to farm and make the barn into an art center with a studio for myself. Maybe, if I win a lottery.....

Thanks for stopping to view my "Good Fences" post this week.
