Good Fences #140 - The Final

*I am opening the link early to make it easier for U.S. folks to join in before family Thanksgiving feasts on Thursday*

Home...where the heart is...and the hay bales. :)

On this U.S. Thanksgiving Day, I am grateful to everyone who has participated in Good Fences, and for your faithful visits and comments - even those silent visits. Your friendship, your loyalty has been astounding. I wish blessings for each and every one of you.

As I announced last week, this is the last Good Fences link-in. No one has volunteered to take it over. Perhaps after the holidays someone will feel ready to host a fence photo link-up... Gosia at Looking for Identity has commented she would be willing to host, so check out her site in the future!

Find joy and beauty in each day. Be kind to one another. Be well. Fare well.
So long as the memory of certain beloved friends lives in my heart, I shall say that life is good. -Helen Keller

One last time, here's the link-up.

THANK YOU - FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!!!

Announcement

This next week's Good Fences link-in will be my last. I've wanted to take a blog break for a while now, but I've hung in there to keep Good Fences going. I am hopeful someone will want to take over a Fence Photo link-in. If so, leave me a comment and I'll be happy to share your blog address here so folks can find you in the future.

I've been blogging for over 6 1/2 years. Time to step back and let my on-line presence fade. Blogging has been my only social media, and I've met some of the kindest, warmest souls here. You share your talents, humor, opinions, skills, beauty, stories, joys, sorrows and hearts. It has been a true pleasure sharing your Blogland neighborhood.

I'll see you on Thursday, and then I'll just say, "See you A*Round." -TexWisGirl

Good Fences #139

A few ways to 'dress up' an entrance...

1. Erect new fencing to frame your driveway,
adding some personal adornments (wheel, horseshoe, mail slot, "Pettigrew" family name sign, wooden duck, etc.)
 2. Paint the old fencing - paint it bright!
3. Keep that bright paint idea and add some personal adornments for whatever season you're in,
 in this case, it was autumn and Halloween.
These three places are all on one road within a mile of each other.

Here's the link-up.

1. Link in a post featuring a photo or photos of fences or gates.

A Bit of a Photo Dump

Miscellaneous photos, just because...
Fog sneaking over the back pasture in June.

Tiny parasol mushrooms - showing how much rain we received this year.

The trumpet vines over the metal gazebo loved the rains.

The pond filled for the first time in years.

Yes, those are Whistlers out there.
A neighbor's hog kept 'visiting' to eat the scratch feed I put out for the ducks.
 
They finally fixed their fence after I threatened to have it trapped and hauled off.

A beautiful sky on the way home from work one September day.
A beautiful sky on the way in to work one September morning

Complete with a Sun Dog spot.
By September, the summer weather had the pond receding, again.
 
Leaving pond fences exposed and "Longhorn" tree limbs balanced on them.
 
Or just creating neat reflection patterns.
With a little cooler temps in October, it was time to enjoy walks on the driveway, again.
(That tiny white spot in the center of the driveway is Thelma Jean doing her Run*A*Round walkabout)
 
And the last of the day's light shared with Gemilyn (the white spot in the back pasture)

Early morning...
or evening...October's skies changing.

Leading to cooler November mornings with fog across the driveway lit by my headlights.

The Earth keeps spinning.

I try to stay in step with the seasons.
And truly enjoy the beauty here at home.

Good Fences #136

A nearby place likes to mix whimsical, spooky and funny for Halloween...
Bats, skeletons, a cemetery, hanging mummy, ghosts, pumpkins, and candy corn. 

Some of the tombstones read: M.I. Dead, Real E. Olde, Myra Manes, C. Yalater, Bo Nee, Yule B. Next
Note the skeleton fellow sitting on the commode back there.
 
My favorite grouping - the two fellows celebrating with refreshing beverages and skeleton dog chasing skeleton man.
Here's the link-up!
