Friday Fences - Locust Grove Split Rail
Locust Grove is a late 1700s historic home and farm within the city limits of Louisville, Kentucky. I was out there earlier in the fall to check out their annual antiques market and get some photos of the grounds. Stretching along the road side of the farm is the most amazing split rail fence. When Janis started the Friday Fences meme knew I wanted to get some photos of this fence when fall was in full swing.
The fence begins up near the side entrance in a little grove. The amazing thing about this fence is how different it looks from various perspectives.
Friday Fences is a new meme hosted by my good blog friend Janis at Life According to Jan and Jer . Go there to sign up or check out the fences shared by other players.
