GOOD FENCES


Whenever we go for a ride to one of our favorite parks, we invariably take the 'pretty route', which usually means avoiding a lot of traffic, at least for a few miles.  We drive through a small community of houses and pass by this small house.  I am assuming it was someone's home at one time but a larger, more modern home has been built on the same grounds.  Fortunately this was left on the property at the time.  I know nothing of its history but like many of these old places, I am sure it has a few stories to tell.

  1. It looks like it has seen a lot of years. It might serve well now as a hobby shed or writer nook.

  5. That is a sturdy looking fence and do you know, that could well have perhaps been a little school house from days of yore. There are tiny ones dotted around the south of our state.

  6. I've always been fascinated with the old log cabins - can't imagine living in it - but there's something so charming about it!

  13. Hi Denise, I do love old houses - all the work and lives of the former occupants. The fence suits it too. Cheers :D)

  20. I'm sure the building has a provinance and the new owners of the land know it. VA is very protective of its history. Lovely old thing isn't it.

  35. Hello on a gorgeous, spring day in TENNESSEE. Wow---after the long and bitter winter we had this year, Spring is even more inviting and lovely.

    We love to take the 'pretty routes' also when we can. Coming through the Shenandoah Valley the other night was marvelous...

    Great photos of fences --and that area.

    We are now home 'again' --after our 5th trip since the end of February.... Seems as if we visited five different states --although the trips weren't planned for that reason... ha... BUT--as I always say, it's great to be home... I did publish a blog post today--so check it out when you have time. Have a wonderful weekend.

    Hugs,
    Betsy
