Good Fences - Vines and Snow

It's a very nasty weather day here today, schools are closed and roads are an icy nightmare. So I'll be staying inside with a nice cup of hot coffee and joining in on the fun of GOOD FENCES hosted by Theresa from the (Run-a-round Ranch Report.)

Click to Enlarge all Photos.

I spotted this vine creeping through the chain link fence at my mom's house a couple of weeks ago (before the cold snap hit) and thought it looked cool and would make for a great entry for Good Fences so I snap a few photos of it.





I just love the curly tendrils.

Next I made it outside one day after our snow arrived.  Which by the way didn't amount to more the 1-2 inches but the darn stuff has stuck around on the ground due to the below freezing temps we've had here.  Anyway I decided to photograph the top of the chain link fence that borders our property and the neighbor on the other side of us.



Finally I spotted this magpie flying off with a peanut and of course it flew right near the neighbors fence that lives across the street from us so how could I not include this shot.


Of course I'd rather we were back to the weather in the vine shots but I'm afraid that's not happening any time soon.

So be sure to stop in at Theresa's blog and check out all the other great fence shots.  - Stay Warm and Safe.

  9. What great fence shots! Was that red vine poison oak??? I noticed 5leaves and I know it can turn really red in the fall...anyway, it sure is beautiful! It seems like our winter is starting early this year...no snow yet here in NC. Great shot of the bird...looks like he's heading right for that fence...watch out!!! Lol!

  15. I've never seen a magpie. I agree the red leaves of that vine and the curly tendrils are rather pretty.

  16. Beautiful red on that vine! I like the close up snow shots and the wooden fence, too!

  17. Oh.. my heartbeat quickened at the sight of that magpie.. I saw a couple of them once several years ago. Such a treat. The only sighting.. ever.. except for those in photos and this one does wonders for that fence :) I'm glad you didn't get the snow people in Buffalo are experiencing, and as always, love your photographic eye.

  19. Oh Ida, you really have some great close ups of the fence and vine and I just don't know what to say about this early snow...

  20. Enjoyed your different fences. The red flowers was a perfect accent to that chain link one. Thanks for visiting.

  21. Love the red vine with the reaching, grasping tendrils.

  22. Great fences, Ida, but I think the vine and the Magpie stole the show. I am with you ... I am counting the days until spring. We have a long way to go, I'm afraid.

  23. These are some excellent captures. Love the detail on the close ups of the vine.

  24. Oh, that's such a pretty shade of red vine creeping through the fence! Seeing the snow on top of the chain link fence gives me a chill! The metal looks really cold! Magpie is probably looking for a dry spot to sit!

    Thanks for stopping by to comment on my fence image.

  25. I'm just a little jealous, look at how beautiful snow can make a plain old chain link fence!! Enjoy it, it makes for some great blogging material!!

  26. I'd have to say I prefer the photos of the Virginia Creeper vine to the snow (not always my favorite to have to be out in although it is pretty in pictures.)

    ReplyDelete
  27. The red leaves are beautiful, dear Ida! What a beautiful way of capturing nature.

    Have a wonderful weekend! Hugs

  28. I think this is the first time I noticed that a chain link fence (the one with the snow) has little heart shapes at certain angles. Very nice shots, Ida.

  29. Very creative shots. I think the second one is my favorite.

  36. You got some great fence shots. I really like the vine growing on these fence. The snow covers all when it arrives. We had a dusting of snow yesterday.

  37. I had to pick some shots I took in the summer of the chain link fence across from my house. It has a similar vine too. I love it as photographic inspiration: it makes such a simple frame for anything.
    Great capture with the peanut thief!!

  38. Cool looking clouds. Looks like mountains of snow to me.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Great eye! I do love your fence photographs.

  41. The warm red vine against the gray cold metal fence is a nice contrast. It's also a beautiful red. And I really like the curly tendrils too. Stay warm and slip on the ice. The weather does sound terrible.
