Fridays Fences

It rained pretty much all week
so I haven't been out taking photo's.
Our country road turns to slime when it rains
which means I don't go anywhere.

Unless Hubby drives.

These photo's are from last year
a few months after we put 
the garden in
and put grass seed down. 

The gardens and lawn wouldn't be
possible without the picket fence
as Shep our youngest and largest
dog would  destroy it all.

He has the rest of the farm
that he can rule!

We still have a gap over by the back
porch that is waiting for the building
of a large screened porch.
Wire fencing takes over from the pickets
and keeps a very sad Shep 
off the porch. 

It's the only way the 'wicker' furniture
would survive!

I'm joining in (a little late)

Maura you place is lovely and the photos are beautiful. I love the one with the hydrangeas, flag and picket fence in the background. Love the mailbox and wagon as planters too.

Maura-- What a beautiful spot you have created there. One of my favorite photos is the one where the lace edged tablecloth is blowing a bit in the breeze- xo Diana

Wow Maura, I thought Spring had really come early until I read the pic's were from last year.
They're all such beautiful photos.
I'd love to sit at that table and share a cup of tea :D

Your Friday fences are country livin' lovely Maura! Good Sunday to you!

I love your fence and yard. I know what you mean about the dog, I have the same problem here. We love 'em dearly, but they sure do make a mess of things. If I plant flowers they get dug up if I don't protect them. Have a nice Sunday.

The improvements to the farm are amazing. So beautiful Maura. You make Ana amazing team to get this all together

Everything looks so sweet and peaceful. Picket fences are one of my very favorite things although I don't have one of my own...maybe someday. I just love your homeplace and all that you are doing to it. Keep up the good (and hard) work!

I think a picket fence holds a lot of charm. I do think that is a great think about living in the country, our dogs get to run all over the place.
(just hopefully not digging up the flower beds as you said)
