I love your photo for this Thoughtless Thursday. I very much like those stone fences that can be found all over KY. I have a good friend who was the only woman in a class that taught rock wall building. She said the men were out to get her to quit, but she is made of stern stuff and stuck with it. And collected to creek rock, bringing it home in the trunk of her Camry. She has since built a stone wall in her backyard where she also has a goldfish pond. Her yard backs up to the cemetery, so she has some good quiet neighbors! LOL - take care, from Fayette Co.
My husband worked in the Laborers Union for many years. He said when the pipeline goes through the state, they have to move lots of those fences,so they had a class on building,moving,and restoring them.The rock fences are beautiful.
It reminds me of a lot of those stone walls that were used as barricades in battle during the Civil War...not that I was around back then ;-) (tho I do feel that old sometimes!)
Always enjoy your Thoughtless Thursday pictures because they make me "think" of all the things I love about Kentucky.
The rocks themselves and the shapes look a bit different, but they are all over New England. "Good fences make Good neighbors" R.Frost
Lovely photo. I can just imagine the silence.
Great light and an interesting subject. We still have some rare stone fences like this one in the countryside, but they are really disappearing.
Gorgeous! I LOVE stone walls! They remind me of Ireland, which I adore...
I can just see the dirty, calloused hands as they built that fence. I wonder when it was built?
