Good Fences #5 - The Grape Fence

Hello & Welcome.  -  Today is one of those days where you realize it's better to just stay inside.  Why?  Well once I bought a card (which I still have) that said,

"When it's raining "cats & dogs" outside .....Duck!

It's been a very soggy week here in "Wally World" aka (Walla Walla).  Yesterday it rain but it cleared off enough that I was able to get out and take some pictures for Theresa's (The Run "A" Round Ranch Report) Thursday Meme:  GOOD FENCES.

I'd seen and photographed this fence last year but didn't really like the pictures I took of it then so I wanted to go back and take better ones.

This particular fence is across the driveway heading into a Bed & Breakfast place (Vines and Roses) here in town.  It's a gorgeous restored Victorian home and after look at their website I am wanting to stay there even though I live in the same town!

 
Walla Walla is starting to become famous now for more then just our Sweet Onions and Wheat.  It's fast becoming "Wine Country" so I found the grape vine decorative fence very appropriate for are area.

 
The fence lines both sides of a driveway/bridge over a lovely little stream.
 


On the right side of the bridge some leaves from a neighboring tree were growing through the fence.  I thought they looked really cool and sort of reminded me of (grape leaves) even though they aren't.
 

 Another view showing some of the detail on the fence.


This is on the left side of the fence.  They have beautiful landscaping here.  The dogwoods are blooming now.  Don't they look pretty behind that fence.
 


Another close-up of the fence.  If you look closely you can see that behind this fence is a lovely little waterfall cascading into the stream that runs through the property.
 
I think this would be a wonderful place to stay at and relax and take in the beauty around you.
 
Have a great day & thanks for stopping by.

  5. Beautiful iron-work, and with a motif that works really well with all the vineyards in your area. It certainly looks like a lovely property, and if they take that much trouble over their fence, I'll bet the rooms are pretty out of this world. All the best, Bonny

  27. I love the detail in this wrought iron fence. It's very pretty and I'm sure the B&B would be lovely. We used to 'escape' from our kids when they were teens to a hotel in our city 20 minutes from home. lol I think you should definitely stay at that B&B! :)

  31. my husband and i once stayed in a local hotel for our wedding anniversary for something different so going to this bed and breakfast to stay a night or two would be wonderful, i think... the iron fence is beautiful with all it's intricate workings. i simply love the tree leaves coming through on the one and the dogwood behind the other. some very nice images. hope all is well. have a great day~

  32. It's a lovely and probably unique design Ida.It would be a good choice for winelovers like us.

  33. A very good "fence" shot with those pretty flowers. It's interesting how grape orchards have developed across the state of Washington. I haven't been to Walla Walla in several years. I'd like to see the current town some time.

  38. Oh my gosh I'm so glad you pointed me to your blog after somehow I visited your crafty one (which is a lovely blog, but way over my untalented head)....anyway I love love love this fence. Did I mention that we were both born and raised in Clarkston and then moved to Oregon in 1971 -- while our parents still lived in the valley -- we made so many trips through Walla Walla ... not so much any more, but we did go through there last summer as I went to a class reunion. WW has sure changed and grown and (IMHO) improved over the years.
