Good Fences #97 - He ain't Heavy

Welcome!
It's time for GOOD FENCES hosted by Theresa from,
The Run-a-round Ranch Report.

Gosh it's seems like lately I'm only managing to post once a week (hope to remedy that soon) but it's always a pleasure to be able to participate in this fun meme.

Early last summer I happened to spot this fence and I took some pictures of it.  Today you'll be seeing the fence and the burden it had to bear.




Apparently that bush/tree became too much for the fence to hold up and as you can see a section broke out. - This tree is called a Mountain Ash (Rowan)

Here is a close-up of the blooms (no fence in sight though)

See the dried up berries.....they were from the previous fall but hadn't fallen off the tree.  Normally they are much prettier.  In fact in this next shot you'll see what they look like in the summer. 

They are such a bright orange.  This photo is from my archives (2011) but the berries were off the same tree/bush as the ones above. - Apparently you can eat these berries.  See this link:

A few days after the picture of the white blooms was taken I drove by and saw that (sadly) they had cut down the tree and removed it from the property.  - I will miss seeing those lovely white flowers and pretty orange blooms. - Here the fence still had not been repaired.

I planned to get a picture of the fence once it was back up again but never did......until I decided to drive down this morning and take a picture to share.

It's raining here today so I braved the elements to bring you the following two shots.

 Here you can see where the fence was repaired and restained and where the tree once was.

Just for fun a shot of the entire fence going down the alley to show the comparison of the old stained part with the new stained part.




Hope you've enjoyed seeing this fence and what caused it's breakdown.
 
Don't forget to check out the other great fences by visiting Theresa's blog and clicking on the links. - It's great fun.

  3. Sad that such a beauty had to go. They could have simply trimmed it.

    A wonderful tale of change here and a beautiful tree.

  7. I've never seen a mountain ash, Ida. But, if I had land and could dig a hole... I'd have me a mountain ash. One of the prettiest bushes I've ever seen.

  12. Hello Ida!:) Love your fence shots! The white flowers looked so pretty against the fence. It's a shame that the trees or bushes were removed, as all they needed was a good trimming.

  18. it's a nice looking fence. Too bad they cut the tree down though. The blossoms are very pretty

  19. It is too bad they cut the entire tree down. Those are pretty orange berries. The fence does look good all repaired.

  20. I guess the fence won. Too bad about the pretty bush!

  21. That was a lovely tree. Too bad they couldn't trim it.

  22. What a shame, I hate to see a beautiful tree being cut down. Maybe they will plant something equally as beautiful in the future for you to enjoy.

  23. I really like the looks of this place....hate that they cut the tree down.

  26. You have an eye my dear... For points of interest that most people wouldn't notice. Well done.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Beautiful photos! I really like the color of the wooden fence.

  28. I'm like you Ida and feel sad when I see a tree cut to the ground.
    Its a shame they hadn't pruned it along the way.
    Also they probably planted it too close to the fence.
    Good fence shots Ida.

  29. I miss the tree being there...so pretty. Shame they couldn't have just trimmed it up a bit. Love that fence, though. I would like that one here.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Too bad the beautiful tree had to be torn out....trimming only probably wouldn't have helped much.

    Good series.

  31. The fence is repaired, but I share your sadness about the removal of the pretty tree!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I agree with carol I mckenna - "beautiful burden" it's a cool fence

    ReplyDelete
  33. We are working with fencing at my house as well. But it's new cedar fence. When they get it all constructed it will be my job to stain it. Ugh.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Beautiful tree/bush . . .
    Sad to see it totally removed!
    Great fence pics for Good Fences!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Nice series, Ida. Too bad about the rowan...birdies like them.

  36. A fine collection comparison images. I liked seeing the fence repaired.

    ReplyDelete
  37. The fence does look good all stained and straight. Yes it is very sad about the Rowan tree, but it will be interesting to see what is planted to take it's place.

    ReplyDelete
  38. It's so sad that they had to cut down the whole tree! I would have been inclined to divert the fence around it, but maybe they had another reason. It must be magnificent when all those berries turn orange like that. Wonderful series of pictures, Ida!

  39. What a shame they had to take the tree/bush down. It is a nice fence.

  40. Would that all our burdens be so beautiful to bear. Too bad they had to cut the whole tree down. I can relate though - we had to remove one from our own backyard because it was just too big for the space. If it had fallen over - it would have taken out our entire house AND the fence.
