Farm Gates

Farm Gates   joceesfarm.blogspot.com


Farm gates have changed a lot over the years.  The new ones are very efficient and practical but don't have the charm of the old wooden ones.  The gate in the background is the only wooden one left on the farm.

It was here before we moved in so I don't know how old it is.  To me the wooden ones have a lot more character and personality, do you agree?

This one is still in good condition so I will be able to admire it for a few years yet and the lichen will get to grow undisturbed - except for the odd nibble by the sheep and the cows.

  2. I had fun looking at these photos, not just for the fences and gates, but for the pretty scenery. Like you I prefer the old wooden gate. Your close up of the lichen growing was great.

  4. Yes I do like that wooden one very much. Neat detail of the lichen close-up. Also love the tall grasses around the fenceline.
