White Picket Fence

 Garden outside the fence

This fence is on a corner lot way out in the country, not in a village or town as I usually think of when I think of picket fences.

A quiet little nook.

A white picket fence is always welcoming and homey no matter where it is.

Nice fence. Tom Sawyer needs to con some of his friends into painting it.

Roan said...

I like the peeling paint. And the flower adds a little color. Nice!

Anvilcloud said...

The peeling is kind of appealing.

TexWisGirl said...

oh, i like the weathering it has - especially since you said it is in the country! nice one, cameragirl!

Birdman said...

A good picket fence is a fine subject. This one needs Tom Sawyer's brushstrokes I do believe.

There's just something about an old, weathered white picket fence that's so much more charming than a new one. Love it!

LV said...

A place and fence that has been shared and made some family a happy home.

Ginny said...

It is quite nice and in good repair, but needs a coat of paint.

What a pretty fence.

That's a nice old fence, even the peeled paint makes it look pretty.

Karen Schurr said...

What a happy vignette. The peeling paint gives that fence a ton of charm.

Stephanie said...

I like the touch of pink of that flower against that picket fence. Nice shot.

Terri said...

Pretty fence! Where is Tom Sawyer when you need him? It needs a good coat of paint.

Felicia said...

great images, love the peeling paint.

White picket fences always look pretty, weathered or not. They enhance the flora growing near by.

Ida said...

How pretty. I love the garden outside the fence and the peeling paint adds to the appeal.

I've always love picket fences. Very nice!

I always enjoy a picket fence!

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

If that were my fence, it'd look just like that. Painting isn't my thing.

I like the picket fences and the weathered look would be ok by me! Great fence find, have a happy day!

Just a few more climbing vines and no one will even pay attention to the peeling paint! :)

I've been painting my parents' white fences this week and it is a satisfying thing to see them all cleaned up!

I like this kind of fence. Perhaps some new paint on it.

Jack said...

This is so charming. Years ago I had a white picket fence. It looked SO much more charming when the paint started fading and flaking.

I haven't seen one in years.

Even paint peeling this picket fence is shabby chic appealing EG :)

The classic white picket fence! although it needs painting, the faded look adds character to it.
