to most, it would appear to be. . .


to most, it would appear to be


just a shabby old wooden fence


fallen into a state beyond repair.


But to me, it's an invitation to imagine


all the grand carriages that would have have majestically swept


through ornamental gates to the house beyond. . .

Ooooh, I love the half-posts especially.

I think by the words 'to most' you meant those beings beyond the section of blogland we inhabit. Your followers of course know exactly where you're coming from. xx

I love it too. Would like to see how it looked originally but must say I prefer "weathered".

Do you think that in many years time someone will be photographing the remains of the modern day fence panels? !!

From your photos, it looks to be in one piece..maybe a coat of paint and Bruce drawing a carriage and it can become a reality...What would Bruce do with that situation, hehe?

I love it just the way it is kind of mysterious looking like its leading to a beautiful home from years past.....

A beautiful fence, if I could have it I would mount it on one of our walls, along with my rusty old iron bits!

There's been a lot of workmanship gone into that fence in the past, isn't it a beauty?

Love that fence, better now than brand spanking new. How come I've only just found you? I can't cotton-picking believe it! LLX

I hear you! Not far from where I live there is a road, and to the side of it there's a fence behind which among the trees there is a palatial gateway, with pillars and carvings. No house, no pathway, just the pillars covered with ivy leading somewhere into the trees. I wish I could travel in time and go back and see what it was like!

I do love this fence, Elaine !
You've taken beautiful pictures, they make me day-dreaming ...
Have a wonderful week,

I love how rphotos have captured the weathered fence, shutters left with the paint just peeling are also one of my favourites - so romantic!
Have a lovely week
