Mending Fences

Miles and miles of wooden fences.

I took these through the windshield while we were going to Rainbow Springs a few days ago.

 

(hubby was driving this time)

 

Mending fences...someone has to do it!

 

Which do you prefer? The brown wood or white?

Good morning Diane! Lovely fences,....sprawling fences! Such beautiful countryside...I like both fences but I think the brown catches my eye more. Today we are as warm as you in FL. Weird weather here in New England! hope all is well!!

Arlene Grimm said...

Everything is so well kept in your area Diane. Those are some pretty fences.

Good morning, Pretty horse farms. I like both the brown and white fences. Happy Thursday, enjoy your day!

Stephanie said...

Delightful fences, my friend. I think I like the white fence the best. Maybe it's because I dream of having a Victorian house with a white picket fence around it :)

Hugs and joy to you!

I always see dollar signs when I look at those miles and miles of board fences. LOL I prefer the white, as long as someone else is painting them. :-) Have a wonderful day, Diane! xo

Diane, You came up with a good question.. I like white fences where it never snows...and brown where it does snow, because you can see them better. That is one long fence I do not want to paint. I remember helping my mom stain her fence..I related the story of Tom Sawyer to her..she had never heard it, about white washing the fence. We laughed so hard once we were done..I told her she had tricked me into doing the job. Blessings to you, xoxo,Susie

Gorgeous clouds! Never gave it much thought-- brown or white fencing. Guess it depends on the landscaping and out buildings.

Dicky Bird said...

White...cool style of fence.

Lorrie said...

Those are long fences! I like the white for its crispness and the way it stands out against the landscape, but I like the brown for the way it blends into the landscape. Hard to choose. If I had to, I'd have the white fence and someone else to paint it!

I love the white fences! Some how it just says country to me.
hugs,
Linda

I do love to see a crisp, white fences against a green pasture BUT I also love barbed wire...lol! Beautiful pics!

As many of the comments I like either of the fences. In my state our thoroughbred horse farms have either and what I like is the continuity of the fences. All one color or another. My header is a photo of one of our most famous farms.

Happy Week to you ~ ^_^

Gorgeous scenery and long fence.Blessings Francine.

Ida said...

Nice fences. I don't mind brown or white, either is just fine. I liked the various trees by the fences, especially the palm tree.

Beatrice Euphemie said...

What beautiful farms and fences! I have always loved the dark fences - I don't know why - they just seem to blend in better with the landscape, I think. Hope you have a lovely day. x Karen

i like the dark! so nice!

September Violets said...

Lots of fences ... where are the horses?! I like the brown fences, but lots of upkeep for both!

Lovely photos! As for your question...It was a hard pick but I think I prefer the white fences.

LV said...

Nothing wrong with either one, but I like the dark one best.

I don't think anything is more beautiful than a white fence around an acreage. Great photos,

Judy

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

I like them both as long as they don't mix them! LOL!

Rose said...

I guess it depends on the buildings the fences go with whether I prefer white or brown. I do know that that sky looks like it might have been fun to watch!

ann said...

I like white fences. I wish we had a white board fence here, but too costly to install it. And yes, who mend it?

Felicia said...

the white stands out better but both are nice.

JoAnn ( Scene Through My Eyes) said...

Wow - that is a lot of fencing. I prefer the white - so sparkling and bright - but hard to maintain. In California we had a white picket fence and I painted it all by myself - it sure seemed to grow longer and longer the more I painted.

I'll have a doll post on Wednesday - I got the cutest thing today at a thrift shop. Can't wait. Will I see you on Wednesday my friend?

Brenda @ Its A Beautiful Life said...

What beautiful fences. White or brown? Hard to choose, I like them both. What's your preference?

Wishing you a beautiful weekend ahead...

Goodness - a lot of fence!
I quite like it white, although I have nothing against brown!

All the best Jan

BeachGypsy said...

Brown! It blends better! Whacha up to this weekend my friend?

Jeannie Marie said...

I love the old white painted fence, but the brown are sooo practical. Nice pictures! See any Clydesdale horses?

podso said...

Nice fences. I think I prefer the white, but the brown makes me think of horses.

Hello Diane
Lovely views and it doesn't look cold at all there although somewhat cloudy Nice to see someone in short sleeves! It is freezing here brr!!! I think I like brown more than white fences it reminds me more of home in the UK. It also blends in well with the countryside :-)


keep well
