Thankful Thursday


Thankful today for an old farm with a bit of history.   This piece of fence has been on our farm for at least thirty-five years, maybe longer.....hard to say.   


I would guess it has a lot of stories to tell and has been witness to many seasons passing through the years. 



Right behind it rests this creek, formed from the natural springs on our farmette.  The farm dogs were splashing through this creek yesterday, even though the temperature at the time was only thirty-three degrees.  


Linking up with Teresa today....

  5. I would love to have some property with a spring-fed creek!

    (Of course, I'd wait until summer to splash in it.)

  19. Super shot of the barbed wire fencing. Great focus. Man those dogs must be nuts to romp in that cold water. How fun to have a natural spring on your property like that.

  30. Great shot of the barbed wire, Michelle! There are many fences like that in our neck of the woods. A couple years back we got a job taking out one of those old barbed wire fences around a farmer friend's field; that was hard work!
