Backyard Fences (Good Fences Link-Up)

Out in the back-back, in the small orchard next to the chicken coop, we have this fence. I like the texture; I like the knots; I like how it looks as a backdrop to the ripening plums. You can click on the image to see it larger and in more detail.
And in the backyard, we have this scenic, if somewhat ineffective fence. Nasturtium growing wild; green garden fencing; a well-placed cinder block. . . . lovely, but obviously in need of repair. Again, click on the image to see it larger and in more detail.
I'm sharing a bit of my backyard fences this week with the Good Fences Link-Up at the Run Around Ranch Report blog. You can see more good fences at this link

I love the look of the nasturtiums against the weathered wood. We have fences like that round here and some of the neighbours have stained them with wood stain. I like the natural look like this, that's what ours is

Like Sian, I'm a fan of nasturtiums and they look great against the old fence. About ten years ago, we were blessed with a new neighbor behind us who put up a lovely fence to keep in his dogs. Before that there was a rather sad looking wire one.

I like old board fences. The gap at the bottom of the fence is for the bunny rabbits? Thank you visiting my Good Cemetery Fence.

These are great. I agree those knot holes are pretty cool and paired with the ripening plums it makes for a pretty picture. I love the Nasturtiums too.

How pretty and quaint are those tangy toned flowers against the grey and white splatters of the fence!

I love the "wild" look of the second one with those colourful flowers against it.
