Good Fences


Hello and welcome to Good fences, Tex's meme. So much fun! Who knew fence spotting and photographing could be a great new hobby!



 Sharing some more fences from Colonial Williamsburg!  It was a fence paradise and I felt transported back a couple of centuries!


When I see these picket fences around the old homes I think of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn! Do you remember when Tom had to paint his aunt's fence and managed to get out of it by tricking Huck?  That's what I imagine the town to be like.


The ball and chain on the gate was a great idea to make it close behind you.


Hope you enjoyed your visit and thanks to all who take time to comment. Much appreciated!

  17. I like the x's in the fences, wow the houses on that last picture are close together, is that when they use to have the kitchen in a separate building in case of fire?
