Went trolling for a fence this afternoon, and got a good one.

Also had the somewhat disconcerting experience of being questioned as to what I was doing, one of those, "Can I help you?" questions from a passing motorist who turned out to be a neighbor and wondered what the strange woman (I admit it!) was doing, kneeling in front of his friends' fence. (Trying to get the shot that got away, dang it.) I love when neighbors care about each other enough to go out of their way to make sure everything's on the up and up. And I'm glad I "didn't look like a tagger", the other bit of information Man-in-Pickup offered. (Must've been the graying hair and bun hairstyle that saved me from that, lol.) (Wow, three, make that four, parentheticals in one paragraph. Am I on a roll, or what?!)

Enough with the verbiage, except to say that a red fence with pink/red/white flowers spilling over it is an awesome sight. Take a look:

After taking those, I wandered around in the car a bit more, went to the post office and bank, and then headed home. I was sitting at the light just down the street from our house when I spotted another fence. How could I have missed this, all the hundreds of times I've been by it? It's so poster-esque:

You know, it's funny. Part of the reason for Friday Fence Posts is to show what interesting and/or beautiful scenes surround us, if we'll just notice them, and my latest fence is one I've driven by countless times, and not noticed!

As usual, click on the photos to see them full-size.

Weird-- I thought at first that it was a hubcap hanging on the second fence! Pretty good space saver to hang your garden hose on your fence.

love that hose holder! and the flowers are beautiful! You're right, beauty is all around us, if we take the time to look.

Those flowers are so pretty against that fence!
And I love the second fence in black and!

You are right, things around us that we overlook are beautiful. It just takes determination (or should I say, "attitude!") on our part to see it!

LOL! I can just imagine you crouching there trying for the perfect photograph! Why? Because, well, I do the same thing! Oh the lengths to which we will go for photos!
great fences! I think of you now when I see interesting ones.

you should have had the motorist/stranger/fence-neighbor take a pic of you at the fence :)
