Good Fences ~ Edition 22 ~

While visiting Connecticut, I noticed every home had a stone fence.
Intricate, detailed...
 and labor intense to install, I would imagine.
We drove by hundreds of these fences. I had to exercise a lot of self control
to "not" yell "stop the car" at each and every one.
They are really beautiful!!
 
But there was no doubt about stopping for this one,
I'm sure you can understand why.
This one was a beauty, no more beautiful then the others...
 
  but this one had a barn and a stone silo.

 There were several not-noteworty fences behind it...

A special and most beautiful farm, I had never seen a stone silo before!!

I am so happy to be sharing this pretty stone fence with
for Good Fences.
Stop by and consider joining in the fun, any fence or gate will do!!

  5. These are absolutely gorgeous! I wonder if they are made of a collection of rocks, or rocks from a supply company? Either way, they are truly stunning!

  7. I remember seeing so many stone fences in New England. Ireland has them, too. Each one is so unique. BUT, I never saw a stone silo -- beautiful!

  12. LOVE stone fences! A landscape architect I worked for in Dallas created one for a wealthy homeowner and took me by to see it afterwards. I was so amazed. I can see why you yelled STOP the car! for this. Beautiful!

  13. I once read a piece in the Reader's Digest about a modern man repairing a stone foundation. He did his very best, but it was far, far, far from the precision of the original makers.

  14. Oh my, what a great place Debbie, and that beautiful old stone wall and silo was fantastic. Great photos! Thanks for stopping by my post, I'd have liked to have gotten a better view of that garden and house too. I guess that was why the gate was locked :(

  20. Wow, the silo and fence are amazing! I would have stopped, too. I love stone fences. You don't see many around here.

  21. Stone fences are indeed beautiful. Your photos are lovely.

    Thanks for the warning. We will be driving through that area in about 3 weeks and I'll be asking my husband to stop so I can take photos ---or else I'll have to take them while the car is moving and hope some turn out well.

  24. Stone walls/fences are pretty cool and yes I bet they do take a lot of time to put together. I'm amazed at that Silo, can you imagine building that. No wonder you stopped and got some great photos.

  26. Oh my goodness, I have never seen a stone silo, Debbie! It is gorgeous, and I cannot help but wonder just what it took to build it.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  27. I love that hugs granite boulder anchoring the fence!! I have never seen a stone silo before either. Lots of concrete ones, but not stone!

  28. A stone silo is very unique; I haven't ever seen one. I loved the rock fences; even that is unusual. These were great shots.
    Blessings for this one!
