Ride Along - Good Fences

Good morning all!  Hop inside my vehicle and join me for a rummaging journey together.


"My favorite words are possibilities, opportunities and curiosity.  I think if you are curious,  you create opportunities, and then if you open the doors, (or gates) you create possibilities. 
-Mario Testino

Let's go.

First we pass a line of posts without fencing, perhaps someday they'll finish it.

It's a short drive.  

Here's our turn.

Oops, the gate is closed.  Can anyone read the sign?

Moving in just a bit closer.
The sign inside the truck reads, Smile for the camera.

View to our left.  

Ah, there's that other old truck, that occasionally blocks the entrance.
It's a bit snowed in.  

We'll have to return once spring arrives or at least above zero temperatures.

First time ever that I've seen the gate closed and locked,

during regular business hours.

TexWisGirl said...

looks like an interesting place! the huge sunflower is a nice gate addition!

Carola Bartz said...

So what kind of place is that? It looks interesting to me. I would like to have the sunflower in my garden, that would make a great "embellishment". The first photo is clever! Great post!

I'm sorry the gate was closed, we could have had a rummage together.
The sunflower is fun, and I also would love to have it in my garden.

Well the gate is serving it's purpose to close off and keep out. It is a handsome gate and the old pieces laying around it are fun. Nice post, Karen ...

It is that kind of Winter, changing our lives and routines more than usual. I look forward to finding out more!

If it makes you feel a little better (with misery loving company and all) it has warmed up to 11 around here.
