Ordinary Fence, Fancy Gate


Another scene I pass by daily on my way to Southlake Hospital (Newmarket) to visit my husband. Usually there's too much traffic, but last Saturday I  was able to stop to capture this.

I am linking to Good Fences HERE.

Very picturesque!

McGuffy Ann Morris said...

I love this. Its beautiful and yet not pretentious.

TexWisGirl said...

that is an interesting combination! i like both styles, but not sure they go well together. :)

thanks for linking in! beautiful place!

Very peaceful scene.

Roan said...

Lovely scene. I like the rail fence and the ornate gate with the carriage lights. It's sort of like the difference between denim and silk, not sure the two go together. But if the owner likes it, that's all that matters.

Cranberry Morning said...

Ah, what a beautiful fence and gate. Love the mass of trees in the background.

William Kendall said...

That is a lovely and serene scene.

Kate said...

Interesting that the rather ordinary fence has such an ornate gate.

Jackie Mc Guinness said...

I wonder where the gates lead to?

Rose said...

That is a nice looking fence! Love the gate!

Very elegant!

marilyn said...

May be a compromise between husband and wife...fancy gate... durable fence and it's a great photo.

Phil Slade said...

Looks like they are trying to impress the neighbours with the fancy gate but forgot about the ordinary looking fence.

That is a beautiful and tranquil picture. I like the two lamps on the gate too.

Halcyon said...

A nice gate, not too overdone. :)

Anvilcloud said...

Good for you for stopping. Sometimes, we never get around to it.

Great scenery but the gate/fence combo is a little odd.

Beautiful scene. Looks like there should be fancy horses munching grass in those fields.

John "By Stargoose And Hanglands" said...

They're just saving up to have the fence done.

CJ said...

Beautiful image. Looks like a peaceful place to live or work.

Thanks for stopping by to view my first Good Fences post.

A mix of rustic and new.

RedPat said...

That must lead to a fine place, EG!

Karen said...

Quite an elaborate gate for that rustic fence.

Ruth Kelly said...

Very nice - it is grand!

Lowell said...

All you need are a few palm trees and this could be our neighorhood in Ocala. :) Lovely scene.

Judy said...

I'm jealous of all that green.

Stuart said...

And the gate is so defensive with the spears and all, while the wooden fence could by climbed easily by a six year old. Must have been a good gate salesman at the Home Depot.

Debbie said...

soooo many fences, and we are all noticing them now!!

a beautiful image, nothing ordinary about any fence, now that we NEED them!!!

Nice gate, now show us the house!! I've been away from blogging for a while (pure laziness I think, but now have got my enthusiasm back. Best wishes to your husband. South Lake is a great hospital, was there for a couple of things last year.

Jack said...

It is an odd combination, isn't it? You had your usual great eye to see it.

Susan said...

Really fancy - love the post lamps too :D)

Nice.

Margaret Adamson said...

Lovely fence and gate. it looks like it might lead up to a large residence.

kelley jensen said...

you are right, such a fancy gate for a simple fence. I hope your husband's health is improving.

edenhills said...

They certainly do have contrasting styles. Very pretty combination though.

Karen S. said...

This is a soothing and lovely place to wander by on the way to the hospital!
