Good Fence Thursday - Lewis Park


Lewis Park is a five minute drive from our home. About 3 acres of Trees, Trees and more Trees. A small creek, a playground, two gazebos, a mulch walking trail, open green space and picnic tables.

And of course a beautiful shadow covered fence.   Click on photo's for details.

Joining TexWisGirl for Good Fence Thursday



Some of the trees in the park are over 100 years old.

You have so many nice places to go.
I am sure in the summer the tourists can enjoy. Parks and Market places.

The fence is very pretty with those leafy shadows! I bet shade made by those trees is much appreciated in summer! Plus the generate oxygen.

Beautiful trees and I love that fence!

Carletta said...

Love the first shot! A pretty fence, awesome shadows and just a magnificent old tree. To complete the scene a nice quilt and picnic basket on the ground underneath would be perfect. :)

I really like that fence - the lattice-work at the top of it is a nice touch, and very eye-appealilng. Also, that carved wood artwork in your prior post is just gorgeous!

TexWisGirl said...

GORGEOUS trees! great fence and shadows, too!

Rose said...

I LOVE that last tree, but all these have a wonderful feel to them and I have not even clicked to open up the view.

Jo said...

How peaceful it all looks. I love the shadows of the old trees on the walled fence.

CatTales said...

ThreeOldKeys said...

Wow! what a beautiful place. I'd like to walk around there for awhile ....

Marie said...

This looks like heaven, right now! That wonderful shade from those amazing old oaks, and that pretty white fence!

What a beautiful place to walk and just enjoy the sunshine and shadow-play.
I just love all the trees with their fresh new growth this time of year.
To answer your question, I have the pictures printed the same size they are here on the post.
I would love to have them larger but it would increase the number of pages of the book to be printed and would cost me a fortune. I have printed a book for the last 9 years, one for each year. It usually costs me around $60. It's a great keepsake journal for me and eventually maybe a great memory book for my kids.

Love the trees and their shadows. They really soften the fence. Lovely photos.

This fence looks sturdy and it's pretty to boot. Nice photos...the tree is massive and neat.

Linda said...

I am fairly well convinced that you can take ANY photo - and make it a truly interesting one! I do NOT know how you do it - but you do!!

pattisjarrett said...

I love those trees with Spanish moss. :)

s.c said...

The last photo has a very dramatic fairytale quality. Thats a tree ready for a Disney storytelling.

Lois said...

Love the shadows on the fence and those trees look just like the ones we have here, especially with the Spanish moss draped on the branches!
