Good Fences # 26





We've had some beautiful days here lately as we embrace the tail end of summer and prepare to welcome autumn.  I went for a walk one morning and took my camera with me.  Needless to say I stopped a lot along the way to take pictures of our beautiful countryside.

A piece of farm machinery is parked at the side of the lane next to this field.  The cedar fence posts are pretty well hidden by the weeds and long grasses and there is barbed wire strung between them, barely visible.


A song sparrow perched on this old cedar fence post and posed for me.




I cropped this one for identification but I like the sparse grasses sticking up, and the top of the old post too.   Isn't he cute?


There was a lot of wild asters and goldenrod growing along this fence.



I don't know what the tall dark brown one is.  Can anyone identify it for me?  It's very common here.

It's Good Fences day at Theresa's "Run *A* Round Ranch Report" today and tomorrow.   I hope you might join in or just stop by to visit.  

Thanks for stopping by.   Have a great day!

Blessings,
Pam

  4. Beautiful shots, and all nicely composed. My favorite is the vertical shot, 4th one down. Love the composition, the flowers and the "fall" look to it.

  10. Lovely photos . Looks pretty much like it does here with the wild flowers in the fields ! Our song sparrows have long gone now most of our summer birds have gone and the fall and winter ones are arriving ! It is a chilly but sunny one here today ! I think the brown plants are curly docks they are common in Canada and parts of the northern states ! Thanks for sharing , Have a good day !

  15. Wonderful fence shots. All the pretty wildflowers and grasses really compliment the fence. Your area looks a lot like where I live as we have many of the same types of plants. Sweet shots of the little sparrow posing so nicely for you.

  25. What a lovely walk - the view is wonderful! I love the flowers and the little bird on the fence post. Around here (WA State) we call that brown weed, dock. There are several varieties depending on the area - curly dock, yellow dock, etc. The root and leaves are medicinal. xo Karen

  30. Gorgeous views Pamela - nothing lovelier than the countryside at the end of Summer when the Autumn tinges are visible - love the wild Asters. Little bird is sweet, but the Goldenrod might give me a sneezing fit! These are such splendid photos and make me want to be right there. We headed into the country yesterday to gather pumpkins, chat with our farmer friends, eat homemade ice cream - it was perfect in every way.

    Happy weekend dear - hugs Mary

  34. Pamela, beautiful images of your surrounding landscape, transitioning from one season to the next. The second shot of the sparrow is simply charming; it made me smile!! You should print and frame it, my friend, it's utterly charming!

    Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
