A Very Well Weathered Fence

While I was walking at the lake a few days ago, I walked along a trail a bit further away from the lake that I hadn't been to for a while and discovered this beautiful old weathered fence. I never really noticed it before which is odd since I tend to see fences everywhere.


Coming closer, it revealed all the moss and lichen that was sitting on it. I quite liked its wobbly shape.


I noticed the holes that were put in the fence posts to fit the slats in. Rather crudely done, but beautiful in its own way. It was a very natural and simple fence.


Some plants were leaning against the posts and growing through the fence, making the fence part of their environment. It just belonged here.


Certainly a good fence - and therefore linked up to "Good Fences" at the Run *A* Round Ranch.

so natural, but really a work of art, love the weathered effect that only happens with time.

Gorgeous - and the lichen really adds to it. Mellow, and now part of its environment.
