Old but still there!

The farm is gone but the fence remains.

Closer look

Very pretty photos! Great fence shots :)

Gemma Wiseman said...

Aaa... The fence remembers but is not telling. There is a romance in the art of this fence.

Margaret Adamson said...

Great history has been behind this fence and if only it could talk. Marvellous shots.

Lovin' this...so quaint, a bit bittersweet knowing the farm no longer exists, yet beautiful with the snow covered scene!!

So sad, seeing an old farm left to go wild; but your beautiful shots captured the bittersweet beauty perfectly!

Great shots.

William Kendall said...

Very pretty, and so characteristic of the countryside.

Pamela Gordon said...

It's sad that the farm is gone and the fence is falling down. It looks pretty in the snow though. Beautiful photos. Enjoy the day!

Penelope Puddlisms said...

The disheveled fence looks pretty, like ink strokes against blank white snow, now that it is no longer a barrier. :)

Shug said...

There is a lot of strength in old fences. Great pictures...

I think this could be the start of a country song - "Broken Fences." I'll work on it.

see you there! said...

Beautiful pics of fences against the snow. Something nostalgic about them

Andrea Priebe said...

Rustic and beautiful. Don't you wish that old fence could tell you all that it has seen over the years. I love old ... it is so full of history. Beautiful EGC ...

Looks very "antique" ! Beautiful shots !

Rose said...

Wonderful shots, EG. Sure makes me want to explore the area.

Debbie said...

a little worse for the wear but still beautiful!!

bailey-road.com said...

Pretty scenes. I love those split rail fences.

Mascha said...

Nice colormood, the fence is aged in honour...

visualnorway said...

The situation reminds of the song "Don't fence me in" :-)

Ginny said...

This is sad. A fence with nothing left to protect.

RedPat said...

And such a nice fence it is, EG!

Gosia k said...

Waht a pity that farm doesn't exist

Donna said...

Oh I love the look of old fences.....so much history there.

4RRanch said...

Ooh, now those are nice shots, lovely.

Ileana said...

Lovely pictures!

Ida said...

Sad about the farm being gone but that fence looks quite nice and very wintery. I bet it would be neat to buy the property and rebuild there.

out of time ...

cieldequimper said...

For some odd reason, I'm thinking battlefield rather than farm here...

Ruth Hiebert said...

An old fence like that is a thing of beauty.

Amy Burzese said...

The contrast of snow, some grass, and the dark fencing is great. Have a great weekend!

VP said...

Old, but still there...

barbara l. hale said...

There are so many stone fences around here that have outlived the farms that built them. I wonder what that means... Love your pics!

Kathy said...

That's a great fence - even though it has obviously seen its better days. There are some days that I think I look and feel like this fence!

Felicia said...

love it.

Carola Bartz said...

Such a beautiful fence! I wonder what the farm looked like.

Your first photograph is a delightful scene.

Judy said...

It might be old but it still is beautiful!

Halcyon said...

Sad that the farm is gone... but the scene is still pretty. Especially with that thin blanket of snow.

orvokki said...

Love these images.

Ruth Kelly said...

Very nice. It reminds me that it is still winter although we are having spring weather in Utah.

Pauline Woodcock said...

I'm letting the romantic in me loose. To me it looks like an artwork, more beautiful than it ever did as a fence.

edenhills said...

Those rail fences are really pretty, but even in good shape, my goats would laugh at them.
