Good Fences #68 - It's a Jungle Out There

It's time to join Theresa (The Run-a-round Ranch Report) for GOOD FENCES.




We've been having a long, hot & dry summer here.  I thought I'd be able to spend more time outside but I don't handle the heat very well anymore so I've been staying inside as much as possible.  Thank goodness I have a supply of fence shots to share as I haven't had the desire to drive around and look for any this summer.

A couple of weeks ago the ladies from our church had lunch at one of the local restaurants and I thought it would be neat to share these shots from the decor outside the restaurant.

  Look it's an Elephant behind that fence.  Isn't it cool?

 Different view.


 How about a Girafee peeking around that pole at you.  Notice the Christmas lights are still up on this guy.


This shot was taken last year and I shared it because this one doesn't have the light draped around the Giraffe.

They've added a new animal to the mix....

 I really like this shot - That Gorilla looks intense and I don't think that fence would hold him in if this were an actual Gorilla but it still looks pretty cool.


Another view of Mr. Gorilla.

So did you enjoy my Jungle Fence Find? -  I know they made me smile and I'm sure plenty of people who visit the restaurant enjoy them as well.

Don't forget to stop in and check out the other great fences by clicking on the link above which takes you to the fence party.

  3. these are PERFECT good fences. i am thinking maybe the fence is there to keep people from climbing on the animals. I have never seen anything like this and would LOVE TO... glad you found it to show us

  6. I've never been to a restaurant where the exterior could be destination itself.

  7. I did enjoy your fence finds but I was wondering why they needed a fence around them at all!

  8. Your fence shots today are very amusing and animal themed Ida. I can see why someone would want to have an elephant to advertise an Indian restaurant but why a gorilla or a giraffe? Good fun fences.

  11. Quite a whimsical set of decorations for the restaurant. i don't any of those fences would have retained the real creatures. Looks like a fun place.

  13. Awe.....this are cute! Several fences today! I'm with you...this Texas heat is more than I can handle.... My hair was dripping this morning, just from going out to water all my plants. Have a good evening...

  14. How interesting to find that at a restaurant, and thank you for sharing them. They are way cool. I like the giraffe!

  15. The "jungle" fences look like they might be there to protect the "animals" from children (and adults) clambering on them. Fun sights at the restaurant.

  16. How wonderful is this?!!!! Joyful, fun, and so unique!! Lovin' it.

  17. Hi Ida, what great fence shots with the interesting animal figures. How fun to see these. Something different to find for sure. It is hot here too and we are going into triple digits for next week. The only way to be outside for long is in the water. We had 3 more inches of rain yesterday. Wish I could send some your way.
    Enjoy and stay cool.
    Hugs, cm

  18. Yes, I enjoyed the animals all fenced in.

  19. Hope you had a great fourth - I can't remember why I missed your post!
    Hard choice to make between the elephant and the giraffe - Is the fence around them a safety measure? Or just decorative ...

  20. That's pretty neat! Maybe we can do something like this in our garden!

  21. Love those African animal sculptures and the beautiful fence enclosing them. Made me wonder, though, what kind of restaurant it was.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Really cool! Big animals behind little fences!

  23. Fun shots of the animal statutes!

  25. Awesome! I still say you have the BEST fences, and these figures are so interesting. Great pics, Ida! I don't handle the heat well, either, but thank goodness it's cool and comfortable here on the coast.

  27. Ida I love these fences but I don't think they'd keep any of them in if they wanted out.

  37. Now, that was a one-of-a-kind fence posting! Love those statues. I hope things become a little more comfortable for you soon. It has been hot and dry here n Vancouver as well though it is expected to cool down this weekend. Everyone is hoping for rain because of the many forest fires.

  38. Fun post, Ida. I hope you get some cooler weather soon!

  39. What great decorations at that restaurant. Love the animals inside their little fences. Hard to deal with the heat, so a great idea to stay in and use earlier shots

    ReplyDelete
  40. How fun, my friend :) The animals are so life-like! Hugs to you!

    ReplyDelete
  41. oh, he is a fierce faced gorilla! I do think it's a good thing he is not real, because that fence definitely would not hold him. but what a great and lovely idea to have these little "zoos" on display.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Where in the world did the restaurant owner get those animals!

    ReplyDelete
  43. What a funny menagerie!
    Have a nice weekend :-)
