Cooking, Photography And Farm Life In Beautiful Southeastern Arizona.
So interesting! I love seeing how different areas do things...different :-) I take it yucca is strong??
that works! and is very rustic looking!
dr momi,Not particularly but they use a LOT of them! ;-)TWG,I really like the look of the fences made this way!
Looks just like old wood posts.Thanks for sharing this!It's annoying that I won't be able to see any more comments without remembering to come back to your blog post.Oh well. have a good weekend!
Now that's using your resources! :) You don't see much barbed wire here anymore...but I'd bet it works!
I actually like the look of the wooden posts. Much better than the old rusty, ugly metal posts, and more friendly to the environment.
You use what you have. I love the creativity. Some of my fences are pretty hobbled too, but I'm trying to change that. :-)
LindaG,They do look like wood posts until you get up closer! You have a good weekend too!Alica,We still use a lot of barbed wire out here in the wild-and-wooly west!
Swamp Dog,They do all a lot more charm to an otherwise boring fence!Teresa,The ranchers around here get *really* creative with their fencing sometimes! :)
hey, it works. can you imagine falling on that cactus ... ouch!! something you would never forget. (:
Nice! BTW love the new look of your blog.
Beth,I definitely don't want to fall on that cactus! I like the way it has grown up and around the fence though!SweetLand Farm,Thank you! :)
You could always tell where my Grammy had patched fence. She used bailing twine!
it's best to use what's handy and i like the rustic look to it!
We do much the same thing. I like the small branches and the look they give. They also do wonders at keep EVERYBODY where they need to be~! ~Pat
oh PS...I'm so glad you've become a Non-verification Comments- blogger! I meant to tell you that recently. I don't get much spam-- I usually catch it before it goes up anyway. take care-
I really like these shots!!! Love all the cacti, especially.
Prickly pear is a good example of a natural fence!
Clint,We use a lot of it around here too! ;-)Tanya,I like the look too!Pat,It is rather efficient in keeping the calves in and/or out!
Rose,Thanks! :)Jules,Thank you!Kathy,I have seen property in Tucson where they use prickly pear for a natural fence!
Now that's using what you have available. I love it! :)
Very good photos.Regards and best wishes
Nancy,It is pretty cool that they used what was available!Tatjana,Thanks! :)
Very resourceful...I like that!
Whatever works : ) Love the cactus.
Making do makes people become inventive!Fence Song
Yucca stalks?? I had no idea! Guess they grow different where you guys live. Natural fencing looks beautiful and blends into the scenery better anyhow.BTW, like the new header pics!
Jan n Jer,It is definitely make-do!Michaele,Ya'll will be seeing more cactus this spring when it starts blooming!MMT,It does, doesn't it?! :)Carolyn Renee,I like the natural look of it too!
I love unique fences. There are certain parts of the country where you find them and they just add a bit more character!
A very interesting twist on fence construction. Nice capture
Most of my fences are photographed here in town, but I look forward to presenting more rustic ones...especially an ocotillo! There is an ocotillo from here in town but I'd love to find one on a ranch! Love these yucca spines and barbed wire. Really nice photos, too!
Maria Rosa,We have some pretty unique fences around here! LOL!!Shaun,Thanks!Marie,I loved all your fence pictures from around Tucson! I have seen some really cool ones on my travels to "the city!"
Whatever works... pretty cool fence
Love those fences...there are a lot of the same type up here where trees are few and far between.
gtyyup,The old ranchers always used what they could find, huh?!?
