Good Fences #137 & Little Things Thursday


Welcome!

This week has been a bit tough....had to take my mom back to the ER again on Halloween night. - Her regular doctor couldn't see her and said to take her to the ER - Which she hates doing (and so do I) as it takes "forever" to be seen and released. - Seems the Infection she had in her leg earlier last month was back again.  So now we are back on Antibiotics again & we're still dealing with the Edema issues as well. 

So now that you know what's been happening here let's get started on some fun stuff.

 Up first GOOD FENCES hosted by Theresa from The Run-a-round Ranch Report.

Some of these photos are from my Archives but have never been shared before.


Up first from way back in 2008:

This big pumpkin was spotted growing up on top of a fence while we were out walking one day.

Spotted this squash growing through a fence in 2015 while out on a walk.

These pumpkin vines Coleen and I walked by every day last fall on her way to school.

Here are a couple of the pumpkins.  You'll notice just a trace of the chain link fence in the lower right hand corner near my watermark.

Saw this round squash growing on a fence in a nearby alley.

Another view of the same fence & squash.  You can see some of the Morning Glory that was also growing on the fence. 

So there you have my Good Fences for this week.

LITTLE THINGS THURSDAY hosted by Tamar from Random-osity.

Yesterday was a glorious day here weather wise.  I believe we made it up to 79!  Last night I happened to look across the street and saw the sun shining on our neighbors Maple tree and just had to go take a picture of it to share today.

Oh yeah that is beautiful!  (Also note there is a fence in the shot too)

Look at that color.  It's the "little things" like this that help when you've had a rough day.  Thankful for God's great beauty in nature.

Don't forget to stop by both blogs to check out the other participants.

Have a great day.

  8. Hello Ida!:)I'm so sorry that your mom has another infection, and wish you both all the best. I can imagine how worried you are. You have a lovely variety of fence shares. The pumpkins and squash hanging over fences is a familiar sight where I live, and I always think how attractive they look. I like the rich colours of the wooden fence ( almost looks polished in your 1st shot) and the magnificent Maple tree.

  9. Ida, I am very sorry about your Mom's leg. I know that is painful and so frustrating to have to wait at the ER. Praying that the scipt gives her relief. I love the pumpkins/squash pictures and your neighbor's tree is glorious. Praying for you and your family this Nov.

  10. Love the pumpkins and squash growing on (and through) the fences! Years ago we had a pumpkin vine grow through our fence, onto the neighbor's property, and a huge pumpkin grew from that vine! We let our neighbor have the pumpkin. :)

  21. What fun photos! I especially loved that pumpkin on the fence and the last one, the squash hanging at the fence. We had a squash that had climbed a tree one year, so there were a couple squash hanging up quite high. LOL Hope you have a good Thursday. I think Mystery is on TV tonight. :-) And thanks so much for your comments on my post. xo

  27. the fences offer great support for the pumpkin and squash vines which really need them. it's a good idea to plant them close to fences. your fall colors are gorgeous and you killed the fences this week!!! good to see you today!!!!

  30. Wow! Awesome captures, Ida! I love when things slip through and grow on their own. Nature takes care of itself! Hugs...and peace.

  31. That is wild - the pumpkin grew right on top of the fence! Maybe I should plant vegetables instead of flowers, and see what grows on my fence. Ha. I never get tired of seeing those gorgeous Fall colours. Orange is becoming my favourite colour.

  36. OOH, that maple tree is gorgeous! Your picture is lovely too! I'm sorry to hear about your rough week, and I sure hope that your mom is feeling better with the antibiotics. A trip to the ER for something like that is just not fun at all. Hugs to you Ida, hope your weekend is blessed!
