Good Fences #22

Since we are in the throes of hot, dusty, dry summer in Texas, and because I miss thick green pastures and wildflowers, here's a couple of scenes from April on the way to town.

There, I feel better... :)

That is some wire fencing. Seems we both have scenic routes on the way to town this morning.

Brian King said...

Very green! That's how it looks here, but only because of late summer rain.

Pix Under the Oaks said...

Like those wonky posts! I think the only thing that fence is going to keep in is those lovely little yellow flowers!

Ileana said...

Wire fences are everywhere the same! Useful and easy to made​​! Thanks for hosting! Have a nice day!

Michelle said...

I like this wop-sided fence! At least that is what we might say around here :) Looks nice and green there too!

eileeninmd said...

It is nice to have scenic drive, pretty greens. Great fence captures! Thanks for hosting! Have a great day!

A Quiet Corner said...

Things are looking a tad brown up this way too, T, but these saves of yours do Texas justice for sure!...:)JP

Revrunner said...

Yikes! Rusty barbed wire fences.

Sandra said...

beautiful green grass and it must be mini critters that use that short barn.. LOL

HOOTIN ANNI said...

Is that a roll of barbed wire in the foreground? I wish it WERE STILL this green in Texas.

eViL pOp TaRt said...

To contradict Kermit, it's so much easier being green!

Roan said...

The wire is a little different than I'm used to seeing. Love the lush green. We are pretty green here thanks to a few recent rains. We haven't really had a summer that you can skip a week mowing the lawn. Hope you get some rain soon.

Gert said...

Not to make you sad, but this how our yards look today! So much moisture this year..record high. Weird world huh?

orchid Miyako said...

Oh, green pastures and wildflowers with wire fence. We miss spring weather, don't we♬♬♬ Hope we can share some rain to you, Theresa!
Thank you very much for hosting, lovely weekend to you.

Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*

Terri @ Backward B Ranch said...

I hope you get some rain soon- it looks like we might be heading for those hot and humid, but dry days. We've about worn the mower out, so I'm kind of glad to get a few days off having to cut the weeds.

Optimistic Existentialist said...

Lots of lush green in those pics!!!

Anvilcloud said...

It's usually getting dry here too in August but not this year. I might have to invest in a boat. :)

Jacquelineand.... said...

I'll just send some of our humidity your way...

Ana Mínguez Corella said...

Madrid is in the center of Spain and also is very dry in summer.. We wait to rain .. Regards ..

bailey-road.com said...

All that green sure looks pretty.
We've had buckets of rain here. Wish I could send some to you.

Molly The Wally said...

We are surprised it is still so green. Have a tremendous Thursday.
Best wishes Molly

Mary Kirkland said...

Those are interesting pictures. Those fences are something else.

Linda Kay said...

That lush green grass looks so inviting. The wire fencing looks so unusual, like chicken wire.

cobie en bas van Es said...

hele mooie momenten.

AGATA AGATUSZKA said...

Looks nice and green there too! Have a nice day!

DJan said...

In just a couple of weeks it'll be unofficially fall. Hope it brings you some rain, Tex. Looked really nice in April. :-)

LV said...

Those on the way to town do not keep things as nice as you and others around.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

We've had one of the best summers with very nice temps mixed in with some very hot days like we're having this week and adequate rain. I hate to let a summer like this one end! Hope you get your needed rain soon!
Is that what we call chicken wire on that fence? Pretty green scene!

Birdman said...

Ya, I'll settle for the lush green of April. I was remarking the other day that this and last summer our lawn has remained green through September. This is different for us... but nice.

Montanagirl said...

Nice views! I like all that green. We've gotten a little rain in the last couple days, so maybe we'll green up a bit too.

Tanya Breese said...

i'm ready to go back to april so i can do summer over! it flew by :(

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

Beautiful photos. I know how dry and parched it can get at the end of the summer. The leaves start falling like Fall! Thanks for the party! Hugs!

EG CameraGirl said...

It sure was pretty in April!

messymimi said...

Those green fields are easy on the eyes!

bj said...

Lovin' the green...

Karen Schurr said...

Green is a very soothing color when the dust flies.

thirtysevenandcounting said...

Those are certainly lush-looking grasses! Great rustic fences, too, particularly the one in your second image.

Thanks for hosting!

Cranberry Morning said...

I love old fences...since I don't have to try to keep cattle contained. :-)

William Kendall said...

They look like very workmanlike fences.

Julia said...

The grass is lush in that pasture but I don't see any cattle or horses around. The fences looks like it was temporary fixed to keep something in.
Hugs,
JB

Paula said...

Triple digit temps here. I'm ready for fall or better yet winter.

S. J. Qualls said...

It sure is a different green now...

Phil Slade said...

We'll be losing our greeness pretty soon. August is flying by. Thanks for sharing the fence theme Theresa.

Felicia said...

sorry you are still dry. we have had a lovely green summer.

great pics and pretty fences.

Gosia k said...

So green it reminds me summer at my place.

Blackberry Lane said...

Nice pictures. We had a very nice rain yesterday!

Small City Scenes said...

Love the old fence in the lush green pastures. Bob has been out mowing the green stuff in our way back pasture. Too thick too lush this time of year. MB

Frank said...

Very lush. Still plenty of green over here Theresa.

DeniseinVA said...

Lovely rural scenes.

Ms. A said...

I know I shouldn't complain about the rain we've been getting lately, but I sure wish it would hold off until my daughter gets moved. The rains have been really slowing down the process.

sonia a. mascaro said...

Beautiful rural scenes! Here in the country we can see many fences like these ones.
Thanks for hosting! :)

don said...

Two solid fence pictures. I too like the lush green look of the early days.

Gerald (SK14) said...

A lovely lot of fences again - and yes KFC does refer to Kentucky Fried Chicken.

Chandra said...

Nice and green. Not always the norm in North Texas. So, great to feast one's eyes on in the heat of summer.

Peace :)

Marie said...

Wonderful, as always.

Furry Bottoms said...

Neat!! We need more green over here too, although we have tons of evergreen trees. I mean we need more green on the ground too. There is so much construction going on, trees being felled and grounds being dug out to make for new homes. TOO MUCH. I moved here because it was countryish, but it won't be for much longer. Sad.

Debbie said...

you texans, one extreme or the other but i like this rustic view!!

it's still green here, we have had a very mild summer!!!

almost forgot to link it!!

Carola Bartz said...

I'm missing that abundance of green as well!

Ruth Kelly said...

Our green disappears here in Utah especially in August. Nice to see all that green.

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,
Wishing you soon some relief with a good rain...
Hugs,
Mariette

ellen b. said...

Your April views are lush. I'm a bit tired of dry right now, too.
Have a great weekend.

Barb Brookbank said...

So green and lush is right!

Sally said...

These make me long for over home in W. FL. :)

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

It was certainly lush back then, the thick grass plays well against the rusty fence.

Our Summer has been unusually pleasant, not many days in the 90's and I don't think we hit 100 once!

Sylvia K said...

It is great to have photos of the early spring green at this time of year to remind us that it will be green again -- one day??? I felt that way every summer in Texas when I was growing up!

Stephen Hayes said...

So many wonderful shades of green.

Karen said...

It invites one to throw down a blanket and lay amidst the green

McGuffy Ann Morris said...

These are so bittersweet.

Marissa said...

So jelly it's so green..
Happy Thursday.

A View From A Brown Dog said...

I sure love your view. So gorgeous and you know I love the lush green pastures :)

MarkD60 said...

Your fencer club numbers are going up!

Gail Dixon said...

August in Texas is not for the feint of heart. Glad you have these lovely, lush photos to remember that it will be green again.

Leovi said...

Yes, delicious green!

Willow said...

Good ole barb wire fences always make for great photos somehow don't they .

Melissa said...

Things are looking pretty brown around here too. Today was our one forecasted hope for rain this week, but I'm seeing blue skies again.

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

Theresa, hope you get some rain soon. Lovely pictures. On the other side of the fence the grass is more green...he he

Here at home we have a really hot summer with fire in the wood and now, closed to the autumn we have rain so much that it come in to the houses and on the roads.

janiceadcock said...

Love the fences and pastures even though my mind says Chiggers!!!

Lynda said...

Even though it needs mowing, it is grass. Our yard has so many weeds in it right now!

Marit Sønstebø said...

It is green on your photo from spring, and I hope you get some rain soon!

RedPat said...

It's a cooler wetter than normal summer for us!
Glad you liked seeing the gate again. ;-)

Giga said...

An interesting fun you did, congratulations. I greet you.

Robin Lamb said...

T, it's pretty brown around here too! We've only had a couple of rainfalls in the last two months! Our summers are definitely getting warmer!

Camila Rafaela Felippi said...

I love green, I love nature!
Last year I lived in Ascurra and there are a loooot of green. But now I have to work in Blumenau, a big citty ):

Terry and Linda said...

Thick rich lush green grass!

DIMI said...

Great captures of the wire fences Tex!!Lovely green indeed!

Elaine said...

I can just imagine how you're missing green fields about now. Wish we could have shipped some of our abundant rain down to you.....

Andrew Fulton said...

It's been a decent summer here but has rained quite often... so all's green and dandy.

Happyone said...

Ah nice and green. Still looks that way here in western Maryland.

Ida said...

Nice shots, the last one is my favorite. I bet it's been a long, dry summer there. We've had some rain here but it's been much hotter than I care for so I'm looking forward to cooler weather. Hope to be back next week to join in on the fun of Good Fences.

Our photos said...

Very nice and green. Still green overhere !

Rose said...

I am so sorry...I totally forgot--again. Well, not totally forgot. Just had a lapse of thinking might be a better word. Was looking for a fence shot out at the strip pits last night, came home and never thought another time about it...maybe cause I didn't get any shots.

Anyway, the coolness of spring sounds good to me right now and these photos look wonderful to me.

ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© said...

It's fairly green on the mountainside here in W.V.

I'm doing my bit to make the front of the house a bit greener!

Karen @ away for the weekend said...

It's funny how different it is in different parts of the country. My April photos would probably have snow, but today, it looks a lot like your photos above. It's been a cool summer in the Northeast. I love those fence posts!

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

I like green too:@) Leaves were actually falling as I was driving home tonight...

Icy BC said...

Oh I love that green grass and wish to send you some of our rain.

Red said...

There something about lush green vegetation that makes us feel better. Very few experience the dried up vegetation.

Busy Bee Suz said...

Majorly plush green grass. Wish I could send you some of our daily rains.

Stephanie Faris said...

It's always nice to remember back to when things were new and green! Beautiful photos! I'm excited for fall...and all the beautiful colors.

Stephanie said...

That is quite the fence, but the greenery is attractive to look at.

SweetMarie said...

it looks so peaceful and green! I hope you cool off soon!!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

The joy of photos -- looking back on greener pastures. (And those are not plain green, they are lush green!)

Debby Ray said...

It is surprising still green and lush here in NC...in late August...almost unheard of! Great country scenes in these shots! Thanks for hosting, as always!

Randy said...

Nice finds.

Karen S. said...

Such rich thick grasses! Almost missed the fencing I couldn't take my eyes off the greenery and the yellow wildflowers sprinkled about! Very refreshing view!

Tina Fariss Barbour said...

I like the rustic look of these. We were pretty dry here, but we've had some rain lately and things are looking a little more green.

Paul said...

Both of these pictures definitely have a very non August lush green look to them...

weekend et coup de brosse said...

joli post!

pattisjarrett said...

Can't believe I forgot to link up! If I only had a brain...
The fence is a bit run down, but it is nice to see all that green grass and open space.

Halcyon said...

Nice to look back at the lush green!

diane b said...

Green is good.

Crafty Green Poet said...

beautiful greenery!

Helma said...

Again many beautiful blogs with fences. I read that it is dry and dusty with you. Here in the Netherlands is currently so much rain lately that the wells it all no longer be able to.

photodoug said...

Green, green grass. Thanks for sharing.

Breathtaking said...

Holy Smoke! You made me smile!:)

I'm so late with my post and comments, will have to start posting F.F. on Thursdays. Yes, it's good to look back on green fields, and I do hope you get some rain soon, or your pond will dry up, and then what will the Whisters do!!!

NatureFootstep said...

reminded me of my childhood. :)

michaelswoodcraft said...

The field is very green! Bush-hog time!

CelestinaMarie@SouthernDayDreams said...

Sure love seeing that beautiful green grass. It's so dry here now with triple digit temps.
Welcome to Texas in August!
Have a nice weekend.

Cheri Savory Spoon said...
