Split rail fence

There's something about a split rail fence that I think makes a house in the woods more homey.

I love wood fences of all kinds, but that's a particular beauty. Must be the whole Currier and Ives setting!

I agree, Shelley... Some of the old cabins in the Smokies have split rail fences. TOO NEAT!!!!

Beautiful picture...

Keep getting well.

i would have had a bunch of greenery on them and maybe a wreath. we added a small little section to our place this summer and i love it. it made the world of difference in the appearance when you pull up.

I love that picture! You always share with us the most lovely things. Thank you.

This fence represents a time on the frontier when those that lived there made everything then needed with the material at hand... and in a minimal fashion it creates a boundary which is another admirable attribute of times gone by... "waste not - want not".

Very cool.

I wonder if the birds are making the dents in the snow on the fence?

Ya know,

This photo is making the UP look rather balmy compared to my images of it :)
