Grocery Shopping for ‘Good Fences’!

So we’re on the way to the grocery store! Put your seatbelt on! Do you have ice packs in the cooler?

We’ll turn here and this is what we see.

I know, it’s not new. We see it every time we go to the grocery store.

But it’s unique!

The trees look beautiful at the grocery store.

A whole row of them in front!

Time to drive back home so I’ll get one more photo out the side window!

Yes, it’s a firewood stacked fence. (we don’t use a whole lot of firewood here in Florida so it’s ‘repurposing’!)

I’m joining Tex for the

Good Fences party!

How much firewood do you have stacked at your house? lol

Stephanie said...

A very unique fence! We use firewood here and in fact just yesterday I went and bought wood permits so that hubby and I can go gather some for the winter :)

Have a great day, Diane! Also, I just love seeing your header every time I visit - it's extra sweet like you!

Diane said...

Very interesting! And how sweet to use your new photo for your banner!

How ingenious!!!

Margaret Adamson said...

I have never seen a firewood fence before. I hope no one puts a match to it!!!

Primitive Stars said...

Loved it, beautiful, Blessings Francine.

The flowering trees are gorgeous. Only in Florida. No wood ple here. Our home has a natural gas fireplace with a remote control. Your new header is wonderful.

Joyce Mayer said...

Oh, how I miss Publix.

Hugs

Mary Hone said...

That is neat. Very unique idea.

Susie said...

Well what a practical fence. I love the trees at the store. Is that a photo of you on your header...the reflected Alice??Cute! xoxo,Susie

Vee said...

Zero thank goodness (since I don't have a woodstove). If I did, I'd be getting pretty nervous about not having any wood. That makes for an interesting fence.

I love that firewood fence. What a great idea for Florida. xo Laura

Sam I Am...... said...

i have never seen a firewood stacked fence but what a great idea! I have firewood stacked next to the garage.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

That fence is so cool! Of course in some parts of the country it would be called 'the wood pile' :)!!
hugs,
Linda

Felicia said...

looks hot too but the firewood fence is wonderful.

I can't help but think of the old quote good fences make for good neighbors. :)

Have a beautiful summer day and thank you for your kindness and friendship.

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

A firewood fence; that is a first. It wouldn't survive for very long where I live.

Julie Corbisiero said...

What a great fence made out of wood! I have a fireplace but never use it. Have a nice day and stay cool.

Debby Ray said...

Now that is ONE interesting fence, Diane! I like it!

Lorrie said...

Great looking fence. We do have a stack of firewood, actually two of them, for our wood-burning fireplace. But we only light it for ambiance in the winter.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

That's really a neat way to use the firewood without setting a match to it! Ohhh, come to think of it, I hope no one tries that on this unique fence!! No firewood here this time of year. We are HOT enough already. Haha!

cucki said...

So sweet my dear xxx

Tanya Breese said...

i love seeing glimpses into peoples ordinary routine, such as a drive to the grocery store! what a neat idea, firewood fence! i miss publix! don't have them here in virginia!

Betty Sneeringer said...

Interesting. No firewood at my house. A lot of trees that could be turned into some though. The next time I have to have a tree taken down I just might have it sawed into even pieces and make a fence!

Donna said...

That's one way to make a fence! No firewood here. Builders like to put in fireplaces, but we found that we rarely used the two we had at our last home. So we opted to have no fireplace in our new one. It would have been gas anyhow, LOL.

And we love Publix too! So glad they finally opened up a store in our end of town this time last year.

JG said...

That's one interesting fence, Diane! I've seen Split Rail fences, but not a Stacked Wood one. :) No fire wood stacked here.

Hello Diane
The trees by Publix are beautiful.
Someone did a very professional job in creating that fence. You are right that amount of firwood would last several lifetimes in sunny Florida

Blackberry Lane said...

I enjoyed your "trip" to the grocery store very much. That's a lot of wood!

Debbie said...

it doesn't matter where i go, i find "stuff"!!

that's a great idea to repurpose the wood that way and i really like the way it looks!!!

we have 2 fireplaces but both are gas!!

eileeninmd said...

Thanks for taking me along. I love the row of the pretty trees at the grocery store. We are running out of wood, waiting for some to be delivered for the winter.. Have a happy day and weekend ahead!

Terry and Linda said...

Now that IS cool!

How cool is that!

McGuffy Ann Morris said...

I really love these fences (especially the logs), and your header, too!

Acorn to Oak said...

Are those Crape Myrtle trees in front of the store? Pretty! Wow...that's a LOT of firewood! That's a great way to store it/use it!

cynthia lee designs said...

I've seen rock fences before, but I've never seen a firewood fence until now!!

Grantham Lynn said...

Very cool. I thought it was cool I thought it was like a stone fence at first. But that's a lot of firewood! Thanks for sharing it and thanks for coming by my Don't Take Girl Fences Post!
Have a great Friday.

Jen Vandervoort said...

I have none, but I love the idea of the fence...kind of reminds me of something you might see in England.

What is a publix, is it fun to shop in?

Musings from Kim K. said...

I'm loving your blog header so much. I've not seen firewood used a fence. Very interesting. We have been using up lots of firewood lately at our cottage. Smores have become a regular part of our diet at the lake.

Sally said...

Nope, never saw that here in NE FL. :)

EG CameraGirl said...

That's the first firewood fence I've ever seen. Fabulous!

ellen b said...

Such an interesting fence! We don't have Publix here but I was happy to find one while I was in Florida...

Marie said...

Firewood stacked fence--great idea! :-) Love the flowering trees too.

Jeannie Marie said...

None at all, but I do have a working fireplace! Since we didn't have it cleaned when we moved in, we haven't used it the three days it was cold enough.

Sherry @ Thrift My House said...

Now that is a cool fence! Wonder if there are any snakes hiding... hope not!

Susan Marlene Kinney said...

I love those old stone fences! I've got too much fire wood in my back yard!

Tree Hugger - Suzan said...

What a neat wooden fence!!
I'm in Fla. this week and it's soooooo hot!! Just walking to the car, the sweat pours. Now I remember why I come home for Christmas and spring break only!!

Diane Writes said...

The trees!!! They are just so lovely.
