Old Wooden Picket Fences

I found myself strangely enthralled by these old wooden picket fences! I couldn’t help but think of the history…the hands that built them…the time that was invested…Do not move an ancient boundary marker
    or enter fields that belong to the fatherless. Prov 23:10

    I can imagine the people standing there, putting the fences up. I can imagine the voices, too. Old farmers, young hired hands….. Thanks for posting! The sepia photo is my favorite. 🙂

    Wonderful photos. Seeing nostalgic fences always put me in a pensive mood and I wonder about the history they’ve seen pass by them. 🙂

    These are beautiful photos! I’ve always loved old fences. I see them as a connector to the past … as well as a reminder of the boundaries God has placed around me for protection.

      Those were both of my same sentiments – I saw history and boundaries. Thank you for visiting my blog today :).

    Today, life is so much easier, but it lacks character. Love the photos!

    Lovely pictures! I would have called these split rail fences, actually. (potato, potahto… haha!) I agree – I am in love with them and cannot help but think of whose hands built them and how long ago that may have been. A lovely post! 🙂

      “Split rail fences” is the proper term for the older ones in the photos! I guess I just call them all “picket” :). Thank you for the clarification…I learned something new today!

    Lovely pictures. Reminder that fences can keep things enclosed, but also safe from danger
