Consolation Fences


My ill-fated trip to the lavender farm also netted some pretty nice fences.  I love it when a disappointment can be turned into an adventure!  Because we didn't get to wander the farm, we had time to kill, so we went looking for barns, fences, and critters.  Definitely made lemonade out of the lemons that day - enough to last a few weeks!


I thought the entry gates were attractive - although I didn't think they went with the rest of the fence.

I agree that the gates don't seem to go with the fence. I like the fence MUCH better!
Glad you were able to "salvage" the day!

I wonder if the gate is a leftover from more grandiose past.

I think EG may be right Linda. I do like the gates, they're rather grand!

Love the wooden fence, but you're right...the iron gates seem a bit out of place with the rest. They're nice, though.

The old gate is lovely against the evergreen in the second photo. Another one of those fence stories that we can invent in our minds? Why did this place lose its former grandeur?

Kathy said...

That iron gate is a work of art!

Glad to hear you trip turned out good! Great shots...your right...the gate does not blend too well with the old fence!

It's always a good trip if I can get a few photos! This gate definitely does not match the fence, but there is surely a story there somewhere!

Having your camera along can redeem just about any situation!

Any day is good when you can get some great pictures. The gate is really grand, but I like the wooden fence. They don't seem to go together.

Leaves one wonder which came first. Nonetheless, the grand entrance is very deserving of a nod of approval. The rest just needs a fresh coat of white paint. lol

Great photos. This gate and fence have seen better days. At one time they were very elegant.

Your observation that the gate was too fancy for the fence reminded me of a line in an old song about a cowboy who had a ten dollar horse and a forty dollar saddle.
