The Role of Fences in Life

Fences are funny things.   The ones in these photos are meant to protect the people behind them from fast flying balls.  I was happy on several occasions that the fence was there.  

Fences can serve as enclosures for safety, 
but they can also serve as dividing lines.   
You stay on your side, please.
You are not like me.
Stay away. 

Thankfully, this fence was for a good  purpose.

You can even take a FENCE and make it a thing of beauty and intrigue with your photographs, Dixie. I admire your talents - all of them (well, the ones I'm aware of). And, good grief! Your little guy is growing up too fast! Love those uniform colors...they make for striking pictures, too.

There was a six foot chain link fence around the back yard of our place when we bought it. I've spent the last 2.5 years growing vines on it so it doesn't look so...chain-linky. But I'm glad it's there, given what our neighbors have had to contend with.

Fun post, Dixie.
