Friday Fences - New England Practical



This fence was in a New England garden--in either Massachusetts or Connecticut. I took this photo on a late 1990s garden tour of the area, going all the way up into Vermont as well. We also saw White Flower Farm and Logee's Greenhouse, both well-known for catalog sales of plants for the serious gardener. This particular garden featured a series of fenced garden "rooms". I call this one New England practical for the bushel basket hanging on the fence ready to hold garden tools or clippings.

For more Friday Fences check out Life According to Jan and Jer to see who our host Janis has on the list of players.

I was looking at the plants that fence is supporting, and thinking how they soften the straight lines of the pickets!!!

Not only do I love the fences, but the gardens!! And of course being able to travel through New England! One of my favorite places!
Your upcoming cruise sounds wonderful! Never been to Russia...yet!
We will be heading back to Belgium later this year for a family wedding, so most of our travels will be close to home for now.
Thank you for stopping by and leaving your wonderful comment!
Hope to see you again!
Happy Friday!

I wish I kept my gardens this neat! And I very much like the unpainted fence.

Gorgeous fence pics. So nice to see in the middle of winter.

Kara said...

very nice. i love White Flower Farm although I have never been there even though my sister lives in Conn. Thank you for your compliments on my blog and to be honest I cannot remember what the house behind the fence looked like. I think it was a rather stately brick house however because the photo was taken across the street from Salem Commons in Mass.

Lovely shots, Faye. I like this type of fence very much, especially when combined with an old fashioned cottage garden.

The use of vinyl fences is really something that people should consider. Aside from the fact that this help save the environment, this will also add value and beauty to your home.
