Good Fence Thursday



Our fence  between our back yard and The Bratz Fort next door.


Back yard  gate.
We consider this a Good Fence, it keeps the dogs safe, protects neighborhood kids from our pool and gives us privacy.

Just for fun I ran Good Fence through Google Search and found there really is a good fence.



Bob's Nook Of Junk and plant hospital and his side of the gate.
That gate is 25 years old and still standing.

Good Morning Sandra, I like the shot of the moss on the fence. Interesting info on the term Good Fence. I am sure you enjoy your privacy from the bratz. Have a great day!

Twenty-five years is a long time! That gate must have been well made!

that gate if it had a lick or paint or some preserative and then it could last another 25 years! Interesting link about Good Fence even though it is not there now,

Nice - Yes, good fences do make good neighbors! LOL

TexWisGirl said...

our own fences are certainly good fences. :) sad that 'the good fence' was necessary because of war.

Gail said...

A well loved and well used back fence.

Definitely a good fence! Nice photos.

Ms. Sandra - You have 'done it'.
You got all my favorites - great photos, bicycles and tools.
Is that your bicycle (I know some women who ride a bicycle with a top-bar)?
The second photo reminds me of the movie, "Golden Child", where Eddie Murphy stands on some pillars, where he has to jump one to the next and that requires a 'leap of faith'.
Beautiful post with beautiful fences and BICYCLE AND TOOLS :)

Have a Beautiful Day and thanks for visiting my site.

Peace :)

I gather that the "Bratz" next door must not be your favorite kids. It would be fun to have a fort like that.
Loved the moss on your fence. That was a neat shot.
Enjoyed the plant hospital shot too and the information on the (Good Fence). Enjoyable post.

I'd say that having a fence keeps the unwanted dogs from coming into your yard and keeps your Jake and Baby safe from them. I can't get my husband to put up a fence in our yard. We wouldn't need a privacy fence. Just something to try to keep people out of our yard.

Interesting facts on the "Good Fence."
Love the B&W with a splash of color!

Ginny said...

Wow! Your first shot looks like some kind of forties retro art shot. The black and white of course, but there is something else about it, and I CANNOT put my finger on it! WHAT is it? The fence moss macro is fabulous. If you look at it with no pre-conceptions, it looked like a strange ancient fan!! Until I read what it really is. People say there are no good fences, but I think we need to take it case by case. And your case really needs one. A barrier against Bratz attacks and drownings, and to keep pets safe.

Fascinating bit of information on Good Fence.
I sure didn't know that.
So glad you have a fence between you and the Bratz Fort.....

SweetMarie said...

the gate pic is so cool, love the angle of the pic!! the bratz fort looks better in black and white.

I like the gate and the fence. Neat photos around your garden.

LV said...

Regardless pf their age, your fence presentation very nice.

Ann Thompson said...

I sometimes wish we had a privacy fence around our yard. I like that second picture.

Mildred said...

Love the fence shots and the info. My parents' neighbor had a tall wood fence and a dog...it was always funny to be out in their yard, and see ONE EYE of the dog, peeking thru at us!

Rose said...

I like them all, but expecially the one looking down the fence.

Deb said...

Great shots and as always I learned something new
