Good Fences #13

Hello everyone!  Yes, I'm checking in today and actually posting for Good Fences.

First let me say,  Thanks to everyone for their good-wishes and positive thoughts in regards to my daughter's up coming wedding in August.

Plans are coming along.  We "Found the Gown" on Monday so that's one more thing checked off the list of things to do still.  Let me just say planning a wedding in only 2 months is not easy but we are getting there.

So now back to my fence shot.  Coleen and I went to Fort. Walla Walla a few weekends ago for an event there.  We stopped at the Cemetery there and I photographed the gate leading into the cemetery.  It's been welded open (which I thought was odd) but what caught my eye was ....

 
Well I think you could probably figure it out.  That bent portion was quite fascinating.

Here is Coleen next to the other side of the gate.


If you look at the background you will also notice that the cemetery is border by a nice new modern looking fence as well.

Be sure to stop by Theresa's blog, (The Run-a-Round Ranch Report) to check out all the other great fences.

I will try to stop in at your blogs and check out your fences/gates as well.

Have a great weekend.

  6. Ida...oooh, I just love old cemeteries and the old iron gates that so many of them have. This one is so gorgeous! Have fun with the wedding plans!

  7. Hi Ida, I must say I like the bent gate prong. It adds character. As to welding it open ... well I'm sure there's a fascinating story as to why anyone would want to weld open the gate of a cemetery.
    All the best, Bonny
    PS well done on the wedding preparations: getting the dress sorted is one very big item to have sorted out.

  25. It's so nice that you had some time out with Colleen!! It's a cemetery looking fence and I'm glad they did not rip it out and replace it when they did the new fencing in the other a read!!

    Red, a good color for Colleen!!

  26. Hi Ida, Must have taken some force to bend that wrought iron like that. Hope it wasn't the cemetery ghosts.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Sure sounds like you've got a couple very busy months ahead! That's a great gate. It is curious how it managed to get bent in just that place. Must've been a meteor. ;-)

  28. I like your fence shots. It's a very interesting subject.
    I like having the person near the gate to help with scale.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I wonder what happened to bend that point on the gate!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I've seen gates like that on cemeteries round here too

  31. Your fence is ever so much more interesting than my cemetery fence.
    If I were to be laid to rest...I would like a fence like your photo...dent and all!

  33. It looks like a cemetery gate! Coleen looks so cute in that hat!

  34. Nice to see a white fence at the cemetery. Seems ours lean to black around here. Odd spot for the fence/gate to be bent. Maybe a superhero stopped by to test his strength!

    Yes, that is a nice-looking fence in the background.

    Don't forget to breathe while you are planning the wedding. :) It will get done.

  41. Lovely shots Ida and with the bent part of the gate... ouch! I was imagining someone who may have been locked in and needed to climb over :-)

  42. I bet there is an interesting story behind the bent part of that fence! It almost looks like it melted.
