A Walk


The path to the beach has a fence on each side.


 On the north side of the worn path 
is a new, tall cyclone fence. 


Woven throughout the fence are vines and
wildflowers of many types and varieties.


On the south side of the path is a low, rusty 
fence that has fallen into disrepair. However,
it is filled with all kinds of things and history.


Plants have taken over most of the fence,


covering it with both beauty and colour. 


Locust trees try to take root around stumps,


while old stumps of trees removed long
ago remain suspended in the  rusty fence. 


An abandoned nest sits firmly in the old fence,
a silent reminder of the life that is around us.


Enjoy the life around you today.

  6. Very neat fence shots. What on earth are the purple berries, I thought they might be blackberries but the leaves aren't right. I love the little nest in the fencing.

    That found nest is awesome too.

  8. What a interesting walk among the two fences. It doesn't take them long to deteriorate. The overgrown vines help to add to the texture of the pictures and color.

  11. There's a lot of history attached to this old fence and those bunches of blue berries are intriguing. I wonder if they are poisonous or eatable.
    Very interesting.

  16. The old fence and the history it represents are the best. Maybe it is just that I am old so I like old things, but that fence speaks to me while the newer one seems to be just an eyesore. Hugs, Janet

  17. What wonderful fences. I like that you showed us the life they support and how an 'old fence' can be truly beautiful. I LOVE your third photo from the top!

  21. I love the way nature just calmly goes about reclaiming what we've tried to alter. Of course, I appreciate that much more now that I'm not battling with it in my former flower beds.
