Thankful Thursday



Thankful this Thursday for random spots of beauty.  Driving along a one lane country road, there appeared many areas of fence line that were obscured by wild Black Eyed Susans.  A bit of barbed wire fencing is barely visible on the right side of the photo.  All along this country road, it was the same scene over and over.  

Beautiful

Linking up with Teresa today....

  2. Hi Michelle,
    The scene is rustic, especially with the flowers in the background and the solitary pole in the foreground.
    Nice find and capture!
    Have a Beautiful Day!!
    Peace :)

  4. Very nice, something I don't see in NE Illinois amid the corn and soybean fields. It is sad how few old fence lines are left, a result of the industrialization of agriculture.

  14. My black-eyed susans have lasted longer than I ever remember! They've been all bloomed out for a couple of months.
    I think it's cause we had such a rainy June & July.

  15. What a lovely scene indeed. Black-eyed susans are so cheery and they do seem to cover up that fence. You can see other fencing in the background too.
