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.

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

Hi I like the fence and the little wooden shed.

Elephant's Child said...

We do that too - and I would love to know some of the stories.

Wonderful fence with good finish.

Mimsie said...

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.

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

So glad they have kept that sturdy little shed.

I take more and more scenic routes these days. Yours is very scenic.

Nice well maintained fence. Nice tiny cabin.

I love to travel country roads where there are so many photogenic possibilities such as this!

Susan said...

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

I like the small house and the fence..the place is ideal to lead a few calm days away from the hustle and bustle of daily life and yes all alone..

TexWisGirl said...

Sandra said...

I am thinking that little cabin just might have been someones first home, with a loft for the bed because of the window.. i love old buildings

I enjoy country things. Very nice that old shed.

Karen S. said...

Wow, now this would be beautiful in my yard as well!

Karen said...

How quaint. The fence looks newer than the cabin.

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.

The little old house catches the imagination and the fence is a sturdy one. I like the woods behind. Scenic routes are good.

Debbie said...

Back roads always provide the best views. We always do the same thing!!

The fence is pretty but I love that little, old house!!

I covet that house! What a little beauty. Nice fence too, but the house......x

Jeanne said...

Very typical scene in your part of the woods. Lovely photos!

nookworm said...

The cabin looks much older than the fence... but at least someone saved them. Nice photo.

Carver said...

I love the little cabin set back from the white fence.

eileeninmd said...

Denise, it is a cute little place, lovely scene. Great shot! Have a happy day and weekend ahead!

Stephanie said...

Very rustic and small. If those walls could talk. Beautiful setting too!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Such a tiny sweet little house; it really makes you want to know the story.

Brian King said...

Very nice! I wonder how old it is?

Gail Dixon said...

It's too cute! It's sitting in an idyllic spot.

Beatrice Euphemie said...

So much history in this little home! I love the wooded hillside, too. Lovely scene. Visiting from 'Good Fences'. - Karen

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

Sweet.
