Friday Fences and a Waterfall




Spent a happy few hours this afternoon exploring an area of Jefferson County that I hadn't been through.  It's an historic corridor that has great old homes, "settled" landscaping like this man made waterfall and stream, all enclosed by the classic stained board fence.  Very peaceful and beautiful setting--and this is only what could be seen from the main road.  Imagine what treasures are hidden on the property!
