Good Fences #20

A very simple share from me, today. A fence and gate with clean lines and nice appeal.
Oops! Maybe too nice of an appeal. Looks like someone broke in at least once! (I'd have just climbed the fence, myself!)
A chain and padlock but not a 'No Trespassing' sign in sight. I wouldn't want to leave that gate looking so inviting for a 'squeeze on through' entry.

Here's the link-up!

1. Link in a post featuring a photo or photos of fences or gates.

Thank you!

I'd have a tough time squeezing through that opening; climbing the fence is a better option.

Jocee said...

Makes you wonder what's up the drive - an interesting entrance. :)

eileeninmd said...

Maybe it was just a accident and not a break in? Climbing the fence does seem easier! Thanks for hosting ! Have a good day!

HOOTIN ANNI said...

In all honesty, a locked gate and a high fence most often will not hold anyone out...seems there are always trespassers who don't respect private property.

Brian King said...

Too bad the gate got damaged - it's a nice one! Clean and minimal.

Gosia k said...

Just simple gate but nice one.

Beth of "E." Lizard Breath Speaks said...

bent & all ... great find, T. ( :

eViL pOp TaRt said...

A nice gate. Hope there are no more break-ins.

Pix Under the Oaks said...

Nice gate! Too bad it was bent.. I am thinking accident too. Be so much easier to "up and over"! Thanks for Good Fences today Tex and Good Morning!

Lynn@Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

I know it's probably just the coward in me, but why are people sneaking onto other folks properties anyway? Isn't that a good way to get shot-especially in Texas??? It's a shame someone damaged a nice fence.

Amy Burzese said...

Me either!

Jacquelineand.... said...

Simple, I like simple and classic!

Sandra said...

makes no sense why someone would bend it since the side fence looks like a ladder to climb right over. i like the clean lines..

Felicia said...

It is a nice gate. geesh why oh why don't people just let well enough alone.

Roan said...

I like the simplicity. I agree climbing over would be the way to go.

EG CameraGirl said...

Someone must have had Herculean strength to bend that bar! Yep, climbing over would be much easier.

Cranberry Morning said...

I like gates like that, except for the major ding. Looks like someone ran into it with their pickup when it was open.

DeniseinVA said...

Ding aside it is a nice gate.

georgettesullins said...

Whoever squeezed through had to have had tools. Simple fence.

Ileana said...

I like simple gates. They invite you to come in!
Have a nice day!

Blackberry Lane said...

Too bad about the bend in the fence. Makes you wonder!

photodoug said...

Simple but intriguing. Thanks for sharing.

DJan said...

Are you talking about the bent bar in the middle? It's not wide enough for anything to get through, it seems to me. Sure is a nice gate. :-)

Andrea Priebe said...

That is a nice fence ... too bad somebody messed with it. But maybe that just gives it a little character and for sure, it has us wondering what happened :)

Andrea @ From the Sol

Icy BC said...

It is a pretty fence/gate! I think I could squeeze through that opening :)

joeh said...

I'm guessing the owner drank a bit too much one night and couldn't find the key.

Hey, it happens!

Molly The Wally said...

We always wonder what is on the other side. Have a tremendous Thursday.
Best wishes Molly

Kathy said...

Up and over? Can you imagine getting caught on one of those spikes? Ouch!

Halcyon said...

This is a no-nonsense fence/gate. Too bad about someone breaking in to it. I'll never understand people...

Lynne said...

I wonder who/what squeezed through . . .

William Kendall said...

You just know there has to be a story about the state of that gate.

Mersad said...

I like it that you can't really see where the path behind the fence is leading. So mysterious. Nice shots!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

Good morning! Thanks so much for linking me up last week! My fences are in the background this week...but they are there! lol Enjoy your day! And thanks for the fun party! Hugs, Diane

Karen S. said...

I'd fix it too. I wonder what the story is? The tracks leading inside don't appear very worn either. Nice looking entrance anyway!

Karen Schurr said...

It always amazes me that I don't notice the flaws at first in the long-shot, but in the close-shot the bend is so readily noticeable. Thanks for the linkup, Theresa.

bj said...

Too bad a good gate was damaged..
thanks for the party.

ladyfi said...

Simple yet lovely!

Birdman said...

Wonder what went wrong here? Up here it would have been a snowplow. But there????

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Nice gate except for the boo boo in the middle. Wonder how that happened? The driveway doesn't look like it's used very much. Thanks for hosting!

Montanagirl said...

Nice find, Tex! Ooops - broke my rule of blogging once a week - just had to share a fence. lol

Melissa said...

Yes, it looks like a jail break! It is a pretty fence in its simplicity, though.

bailey-road.com said...

It's a nice-looking gate. I like the graduated uprights.

A Quiet Corner said...

Now why in Heaven's name would someone bend that gate, when climbing over would have be much less destructive?!?!?>! Just plain silly...:)JP

Munir said...

I hate it when people just ruin someone else's property. Now it will take some time and money to fix that gate. It probably did not take much time for the destruction.

sonia a. mascaro said...

Love the trees around the fence! :)

Mary Hone said...

How on earth did they pull it apart? Stranger than most I suppose.

Jeevan said...

Simply and neatly fenced! Who got the mind to try breaking this beautiful gate?

Stephanie Faris said...

I was thinking that fish would be easy to climb, so why would someone break in, while reading the first part of that sentence!

Debby Ray said...

It looks like some varmint tried to either get or out of this gate without opening it! No fences for me today :(

Jutta.K said...

Was der Zaun wohl beschützt ?
Gut gesehen, einfach kann auch schön sein.
Liebe Grüße aus Deutschland

don said...

A fine shot of this great looking gate and fence. The "squeeze" through place would preclude a number of folkI know! :-)

thirtysevenandcounting said...

Perhaps someone was testing their superpower abilities! :D Or maybe a critter tried walking through, got stuck, and this is the result of the rescue.

In any case, it is a nice simple, clean design and what's not to like about red?

Thanks for hosting!

Debbie said...

my kinda' place....i dislike those no-trespassing signs, i am a welcomer.

clearly these peeps are not "from" texas...but i like it, it's inviting. sometimes less is more!!

LV said...

I could get through that gate, but do not see anything worth looking at on e other side. You better be careful climbing fences/gates.

Chandra said...

Nice one, Theresa.
If I may put a 'geek slant' on the gate; the arrangement on the top of the gate, the short rods, getting taller and then back to shorter, looks 'normal' (bell curve-ish) to me :)

Have a Beautiful Day!

Peace :)

Marissa said...

Could be a very skinny person. Id get stuck.
so interesting.
Xo Marissa

Irma said...

A simple but a nice fence.

Farm Girl said...

I will be linking hopefully when the person who has the photos on his phone gets out of bed. :)
I love the pictures of the gate today. I wonder who went through the fence. If it is too late, I will just link up next week.

Sylvia K said...

I think for some people a tall fence and locked gate is an invitation to break in, crawl in -- just in, however!! Love the pic from Bandera in the side bar -- I had family living there years ago and I worked on a dude ranch there for two summers, many, many years ago! Great memories!

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Me thinks someone ran into it when it was open. It'd be easier to climb over than to try and spread apart the bar; at least for someone like me with spaghetti arm muscles.

Stephen Hayes said...

It does look like it would have been easier to hop over the side fence rather than bend a bar in the gate to pass through.

Sally said...

I'd never fit through there either! :)

ellen b. said...

Now you have me wondering who squeezed through there...

Gail Dixon said...

I like the clean lines of this fence. Looks like a nice piece of property beyond. It's a shame the fence was damaged. Thanks so much for hosting!

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

I cheated, I noticed my green heron was perched on a fence :-)

Yea, it doesn't make sense, it would be much easier to hop the fence.

DIMI said...

I like the gate Tex!Simple and cute!
Dimi...

Carola Bartz said...

I wouldn't fit through that opening... perhaps a dog would? I like clean lines.

Primitive Stars said...

Very nice gate and fence, love the simplicity. Francine.

cobie en bas van Es said...

iedereen is waarschijnlijk welkom.

Mama Zen said...

Guess it wasn't such a good fence after all!

Janey and Co. said...

You wouldn't catch me going through or over that fence. I am a Texan and I know all about shotguns, farm dogs and bulls!

Brzoza B said...

Very interesting-looking gate.

Terri @ Backward B Ranch said...

I'm wondering if a big ole bull tried to push through! I like the simple style, and even the color..but I think I would straighten that one piece that is bent..just because I am ocd about stuff like that.

The Furries of Whisppy said...

Made me wonder if it was an animal that tried to push through the gate. I would have climbed over the fence too. :)

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,
You are right about that! Looks too risky for inviting more people to trespass.
Hugs,
Mariette

Kenneth Cole Schneider said...

Are you sure it isn't a prison? Maybe is was a "squeeze out" hole in the gate ;>)

Black Jack's Carol said...

Must have been a tiny but very strong person, Theresa :) Pretty picture, though. Thanks so much for hosting!

Marit Sønstebø said...

Very nice and simple fence. I like it!

RedPat said...

Maybe it got caught on a tractor?

Happyone said...

A tight squeeze through there. : )

FOREST SNAPPER said...

Great set of gates, the gap is to let the cat pass through perhaps.


Thanks for hosting

Small City Scenes said...

Do you think some really tried to break in? Squeezy.

Grantham Lynn said...

Hi. Thanks for the linky. I posted last night I figured your link wasn't up. Just got home for work. I'm visiting now.
Have a great Friday and wonderful weekend.
Sherry

Carole M. said...

...a nice setting for your feature fence Theresa

Our photos said...

Nice. Did someone tried to get in or get out ?

Life happens said...

That fence is bowl legged haha

Leovi said...

Yes, simple fence, but nice place!

Pom Pom said...

I'm going to look for some groovy fences while I am in Washington!

Grantham Lynn said...

Hi. Thanks for coming by. I never got 'minis' till I ended up without land. I could put one in a big back yard! This little guy was at a school where my daughter worked for awhile. My grandson loved him!
Thanks for the linky!

SquirrelQueen said...

Wonder why they bend the gate instead of climbing over the fence? Very weird. I love the simplicity of this fence.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

I would have jumped over too!

NatureFootstep said...

yea, it is tempting, isn´t it?

Michelle said...

I always love seeing these big gates in your part of the U.S.

doodles n daydreams said...

I think I'd be opting for the climbing option too. Though I'm a bit of a wimp and if there was a padlock I'd have second thoughts about it.

Diana

Julia said...

Wow, you got lots of links today.
Nice practical fence and gate to keep the cattle in. Looks like a break-in attempt... maybe to drive through???
Hugs,
JB

Gert said...

I would never fit through that "bend" in the gate! lol

orchid Miyako said...

Oh the fence DOES look inviting for'squeeze on through' entry :-) Simple but really neat one♡♡♡
I was out all day yesterday and tired to comment, sorry about that; Dear Theresa.
BTW, third typhoon close to my area is coming this weekend(^^;) I hope you are not having too hot weather.

Sending you Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

Linda said...

I'd like to see the guy who bent that gate! LOL.

Sandy Carlson said...

I wonder why just one bar is bent. The gate invites storytelling!

Michael Manning said...

In spite of the absent "No Trespassing" sign, it seems cold and seems to say "Stay Out!" to me, compared to nicer fences you've captured. This one is serious and stern.

Stephanie said...

Looks like someone tried to get in. Nice shots!

messymimi said...

A right homey place!

Paula said...

I'm with you even at my age I could climb that fence. Thanks for the advice about the videos.

Team G Square said...

That gate looks simple and ptetty much Indian. Most of gates over here look like it.

Jeanne said...

I would love to see where this little path leads to, but don't think I would ever squeeze through this little gap, and would not make it over either. Guess I will just have to imagine.

Rose said...

I think it is an attractive gate...minus the bent part;-)

Susan (ABON) said...

Sometimes it's hard to resist the temptation to explore private property...but, in this case, I would need a bigger hole to get in. And, forget climbing over it, no way! :) Thanks for sharing, Theresa!

Paul said...

Looks like the gate swung shut quicker than the owner of said gate could drive through...

bettyl-NZ said...

Simple is almost always the best, as is your fence!

Randy said...

I like the simplicity too.

BumbleVee said...

... maybe someone or something broke out....

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Theresa, Nice looking gate - even with that boo boo. Have a really fine day tomorrow!

Breathtaking said...

Hi Theresa! So pleased I made my first post, and thanks for your visit, and kind words. Still without specs but had to come! Your gate post is a puzzle. Why on earth would anyone want to get in through the bars!
Nice simple gate though.

MICKAN from QUEENS FIELD¸.•°`♥✿⊱╮ said...

I like this fence!
Looks like someone try to use the car to open the gate :)

retriever said...

Lovely gate entrance,greeting from Belgium

McGuffy Ann Morris said...

I like this one a lot! I will be back next week; this week was busy with Bill,

Busy Bee Suz said...

Somebody squeezed through…..I do like the clean lines.

barbara l. hale said...

Got side tracked yesterday and missed the fences. I like this simple one. But over the top would have been a good idea.

Furry Bottoms said...

a zombie squeezed through that gate, right?

Cheri Savory Spoon said...

Love your fence posts!

Skinny Little People Welcome!

;-)

Tanya Breese said...

oh oh, looks like someone tried to squeeze their way in!

Rita said...

The squeezers don't necessarily heed signs anyways. ;)

Tree Hugger - Suzan said...

One of these days I'm going to join your gate/fence post!!

Robin Lamb said...

T, that really make me curious to know what happened there!
Sorry I missed good fences again this week! I was out all day and just did a quick post when I got home. And to tell the truth, I forgot!! I did get a shot for next week though!

CJ said...

If I tried to squeeze through the opening, the fire dept. would have to get the "jaws of life" to cut me out.

Helma said...

Clean lines are sometimes still a better whole than a decorated version. This fence also have very fine picture of you:-)
