Good Fences - # 18 - 24 July 2014

First, for my Good Fences post today-
The horrible thought of July being nearly over, increases my desire to absorb as much summertime as possible.  It's my only defense against Old Man Winter.

For seeking comfort away from all the horrendous events occurring all over the world.



Valley Lake Park - Is the place to visit for so many reasons.

GOOD FENCES, aren't just for making good neighbors, they're for preserving native plants and wildlife, and for keeping many safe from harm's way.

Looking at this photo you might imagine it's waiting peacefully within some lost wilderness.  You'd be wrong.  It's smack in the center of town.  It also features a children's, excitingly-fun-packed playground just a few feet away.

It also offers a paved walking or biking path completely around this lovely lake.

On a visit here, you'll meet Flora and Fauna.

No Park Pass Needed Here.

Don't these images suggest a simpler existence?  It's obtainable here.

The Gifts of our world found, right where we are.   Quite possibly, the best thing that ever happened to us.  Go out and enjoy what's waiting just around the corner.

I am sorry I am so far behind. I tried splitting rails for a fence once. Be assured that it only took the one time to fully appreciate all of the hard-work that went into building split-rail fences.
