This is a fence in our local area that leads to a large private park..they used all sorts of woods to make it. The sides are totally solid and you can only see through the wagon wheel. Below is the entrance and I thought the little house on top was so neat. Nice park but sure can tell they want it PRIVATE which is why they built that neat fence.
This is the Kalamazoo river in rural Calhoun County Mi. Usually that is just a little sliver you see but my how the rivers are overflowing here right now. The neat old barbwire fence stands to keep you out, but if things keep going around here the river will come to the fence.
Talk about fences…there were so many I could not count them all. I counted wooden,wire and metal all in the same field.
Amazing but yes we still had snow just two weeks ago..could get more you just never know how Spring will go in Michigan. Loved the woodpile and the woods beyond it and two more fences.
On an outing recently I passed an old brick home on a sort of hill. It was away from any other home..just sitting there. As I got closer it looked like it sat empty. I debated on stopping in the driveway to take a photo of it. Since the road was not highly traveled I just stopped and took some shots of it.
Brick homes that large out in the country are not seen very often. It looked like someone had tried to update it a little. The back of the house had a built on deck. The closer I got the more beautiful the color of the brick.
If only I knew the old history of this home. There was no for sale sign so could not check on it. Sad to see such large homes in our area sit empty. They are regal and stand the test of time by the hands of those who built them. Old homes just speak to me I guess..
Spotted this beautiful looking barbeque pit standing in an empty lot. Strange what items get left behind. It started to get darker and I headed for home.
