Let’s take a short drive down a long road…

That’s what my husband said we were going to do last weekend!

So keep the windshield clean and let’s see what we can see!

There were lots of wide open spaces, mostly horse farms.

We saw horses but they were in the shade or near the barns so you’ll just have to ‘photoshop’ them in! lol

And as much as I would like to ‘photoshop’ the power lines out…

I decided to just embrace them.

Maybe Tex will think they look like ‘fences in the sky’!

Most of these huge trees are Live Oaks. They grow well here in Florida and grace the pastures and even our golf courses.

And how would you like this for a driveway?

Ha ha! Good idea to think of the power lines as fences. Yes we can find beauty in anything if we look. Love all the fences around the horse farms in that area.

You sure found a lot of fences...but those beautiful Live Oakes caught my eye. I live in Colorado in the summer....but will be leaving for Texas soon where we have lovely Live Oakes

Diane said...

Nice! A driveway that long in FL is okay. The Midwest? Nah, too much to shovel! LOL! Love your header photo!

Tanya Breese said...

that was a nice drive!

Christine said...

Hi Diane! The short drive on a long road was fun with lots of long fence lines & sky fences!
Those mighty oaks are wonderful!

Diane, People who own horse farms always seem to have lots of land and fences. I love those oak trees. I like that your husband is into exploring with you. You both like adventures. :):) Blessings, xoxo, Susie

I like the concept of fences in the sky!!

So you too have doves that sing so faintly they sound like owls? That makes two of us hoping to see an owl, instead it's a dove. LOL

ps....it's good to read that you're getting just a 'little rain' from the tropical storm. And I love your previous post of the doll and the Farmer's Market mums.

I like how you think and enjoyed your fences in the sky just as much as the fences on the ground :). Great shots!

Tom said...

That large lone tree is wonderful. Power lines are a fact of life!

Debbie said...

I wish my wife liked to tour about.

Hello Diane!:) Love all your photos of the long line of fences on your back roads, and surrounding the horse farms. I like the fences in the sky way of thinking, you can't avoid those high wires, so embracing them as something else is a neat idea. Keep Safe! Hugs:)

Inger said...

You found a road full of fences and such pretty nature.

Carla from The River said...

I know how you feel about the power lines. And at the same time, I am so thankful for power. :-))

Sending a HUG for the storm, keep us posted, may you be safe!
Love, Carla

Is that Florida? I could have sworn it was Kentucky or Tennessee.

Grantham Lynn said...

Great post. I like the fences in the sky! Always lovely shots.
Be safe.

Cloudia said...

power lines are just fences in the sky view plane. I so enjoyed your country shots

JG said...

When the power is out one realizes how much we use it during the day & night. You & your hubby be safe, Diane! :)

TexWisGirl said...

how beautiful. your live oak looks a lot like our post oaks that grow in my part of texas. :)

TexWisGirl said...

and 'fences in the sky' are an apt description. :)

Red Rose Alley said...

This looks like the country road that's next to my home. Such charming pictures, Diane.

Linda Walker said...

Well Diane,
"Fences in the sky" sound a whole lot more romantic than power lines!! LOL!
So many horse farms in your neck of the woods! Always lush green too!! Our grass is a nice shade of crispy brown! Lovely photos even the fences in the sky!
