Good Fences #6...

Spring was in full bloom in the Virginia countryside this past weekend during our visit, and I enjoyed pulling out my camera for a few pictures.

This is across the road from my sister and brother-in-law's house.  One of my favorites, a split rail fence.  I liked the bird house, high above the fence.  I wonder if anyone lives there yet?


I saw these in my sister's back yard near her garden.  I never did ask her just what they were for, but my niece said they might be tomato cages?  Either way, since they're made out of fencing, I figured they count!


We can't forget the Virginia chickens inside their fence!  My chickens would be jealous of all that thick grass!  They wouldn't come close to me, but that's ok.  I'll eat their eggs anyway...


As we headed for home, I started out in the passenger seat.  I snapped a few shots out the window as we headed up Route 81.  You couldn't miss this one, just as we got on the interstate.  I just stuck my camera out the window and snapped.  I like the way the fence borders the bottom of the picture.  Pure luck...


And a few more random shots along the road...


Do you see the steer behind that tiny cedar tree?


The fences here at home are getting a little boring, so I hope you enjoyed the Virginia fences today!

Joining up again today with Good Fences...

  4. We use tomato cages that look very similar, but we wrap chicken wire around ours to keep those cute little bunnies out. Nice selection of fences and green rolling hills.

  5. Maybe they are tree cages so the cows or horses can't rub or chew the trees? We've done that here.

  7. A great assortment of fences. The rolled wire can also be used for composting and you plant your garden around it.

  8. Really nice shots, all of them. I love the early spring look to these photos, with the rich green and nearly bare branches.

  15. There used to be a big herd of buffalo kept behind that white fence you captured just as you got onto 81. When I was a child, I used to love driving by there to see all the huge beasts!

  17. I love all of your fences and the tomato cages (or whatever they are) make a very artistic photo! My daughter has been living in Virginia for four years and I've loved adventuring around there. Now they are being transferred to Texas so I'll have a new place to discover. I think I'm going to miss Virginia though.
