Good Fences





I like the shadows of the posts and the page wire in this one.  That might be my head in the lower right corner.  ;)

Last Thursday when I went for a walk I took photos of the fence around the apple orchard.  This fence was installed last fall to keep the deer out and from destroying the apple trees ~ a major problem and expensive loss in past years.  I think it's working.  



You can barely see the page wire in this photo but it's shadow on the snow looks like a quilt.  The rows of posts behind it are the espalier style of apple trees.

I'm linking with TexWis girl for Good Fences.

We got snow again last night - about 10 cm. - and it's still snowing this morning....light and fluffy flakes coating the trees as there isn't a wind yet.  It looks like a winter wonderland though...very pretty.  Schools are open in our district this time but the roads are snow packed.  I'm getting cabin fever as I haven't been out since church on Sunday!   A good way to avoid the flu that's going around. 
I hope you have a super day!

Blessings,
Pam

  3. LOVE the shadows, Pamela! Nice to see you DO get sunshine, sometimes. We keep hearing on the nightly news that Atlantic Canada is getting yet another snowstorm!

  4. I don't think my comment went through, so here's another attempt. I love that first shot of the winter sunshine and shadows! You all are getting way more snow than we are this year. I know what it's like to be snowbound and have cabin fever. I am so grateful that this is February. Only two more months of winter, but can't put the tomato starts in the ground until June 5. :-((

  6. 'Good fences', no, great fences! Love how you caught the shadows making quilts in the snow Pamela. All those apple trees espaliered must be beautiful when leafing out and blossoming - please show us a pic of them later in the year.

    Such a winter wonderland - amazing that the schools keep open - but of course I remember they did in New England too, you are prepared up north! Whereas here, with very little snow moving equipment at the ready (they won't spend money on things only used now and then!), even a slight dusting creates havoc on the roadways. . . . . . and of course the mad run on the grocery stores!!

    Take care, stay safe and warm at home - I wouldn't mind a little cabin fever here, especially going out to all these medical appointments! Thanks for the good wishes - should know more as to what I must do soon.
    Hugs - Mary

  8. Are we tired of snow yet? We had snow yesterday and today the sun shines. I think the Pineapple Express will miss us, thankfully. I don't which I like better the fences or their shadows.

  13. Wonderful fencing shots. I must admit the snow is pretty and that last shot does look like a quilt but I'm so glad we haven't had much snow this winter.

  14. Oh those snow fences are awesome. # 2 and 3.

  15. Yes since many people seem to go out when they are sick it's wise to stay in away from them! That first photo is wonderful of the shadows!

  16. You can really see how low the sun is in the sky by the length of the shadows in your pictures can't you. The gate to the orchard is quite an affair isn't it, needs to be though to keep the deer out doesn't it! xx

  17. Hello there....How are you? I think you have had enough snow for one winter!!!! We have had some snow but it is the cold that I do not like at all! It is 14 degrees right now in the middle of the afternoon!!!!! Bothers my Fibromyalgia. So I have tried to stay closer to home and inside. I love to see the apple trees in the winter and I like any kind of fencing that is in the country. Thank you.

  18. We've been dumped on, too. We have about three feet on the ground, which according to the internet is about .90 meters. Well, it sounds better in meters than in feet, but it's a heck of a lot of snow. And we're supposed to get more this weekend. I love your photos. The shadows and light are just wonderful. There are few things more beautiful than a sunny winter day,

  19. I liked your happy, snowy, shadowy photos . . .
    Blue sky days are nice too, even when they are "crispy cold!"
    Especially when it is crispy cold, I should say . . .

  21. Now that's a lot of fencing - nice photos!!

  22. Breathtaking, beautiful views. My cousin took on the orchard his parents started, but I can't recall ever hearing if he had problems with deer.

  23. I hope the fence works against the deer. We ran into some Canadians at a plaza and were discussing the snow back home - you've sure had your share so far.

  24. The only snow I really saw this year was the day I moved from KY to TN. Wished I could see more. We were supposed to get a half inch last night, but no. Carol

  26. love the pattern of the wire on the snow, certainly lots of great opportunities for snowscape photos.

  27. Fences stand out so much better with snow!

  28. The shadows of the fences on the snow are really striking. Much more noticeable with the snow than without. My goodness but you are getting more than your fair share of the white stuff!

  29. Deer can do alot of damage to any crop but I know the especially love apples.

    love the shadows created by the post. pretty image.

  30. That's quite a fence and I can certainly see the need for it with all of those deer you have photographed!
    The snow is beautiful, but I bet you are ready for a break.
    Take care!!

  31. Hi Pam! Oh, that is a fence and so glad it's keeping those little deer from eating the apples. You're a brave little thing to get out each morning in the snow! We have about 15 inches and supposed to get some more this weekend. You stay safe and warm. No, I didn't read the article as I don't buy magazines much any more since I started blogging.
    Thanks always for popping in to see me.
    Be a sweetie,Shelia ;)
