The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

Good Stone Fence


Shelbyville, Kentucky

I am a big fan of stone or rock fences, but I have never seen one like this before.
No, your glasses aren't dirty.  I had to take this while driving as there was no place for me to pull over, therefore it is a little blurry.


For more fences check out TexWisGirl's GOOD FENCES.

  1. Nice fence but I must admit I saw lots of those in Ireland this year.

  2. SC has said it already I see, but we have seen these in Ireland indeed. So it probably has been an immigrant from Europe who made this.

  3. i've only seen them on blogs like this. i wish we had stone fences here! but even if we had the rock, our ground shifts too much to support them. beautiful, though!

  4. Here, when someone clears land, there's plenty of rocks. Some people are able to make these perfect walls with smooth sides and 90 degree angles, with odd shaped rocks, all different sizes..
    To me it's amazing.

  7. So pretty. There are many around here in Virginia, too, especially in Northern VA where the land is rocky. So labor-intensive.

  11. Very nice rock wall/fence. The two different layers are very interesting.

  12. I like the stone/rock fences, too. There's a fence just like that here in our little burg in central Indiana. It borders the front of a newer subdivision.

  14. I haven't seen one either. Sounds like the have them in the UK and Ireland. It seems to me that they wanted the fence a bit higher and decided it would take fewer it they stood them up?

  15. I really like these beautiful stone fences!! I do often think about how labor intense they must be to build!!

    I was recently in Ct. and saw hundreds of these stone walls!!

  17. I love the rock walls or fences also. They are pretty and natural looking.. Nice find!

  18. I'm with you on stone/rock fences..they are so sturdy looking and seem to be able to stand a long long time. I have seen some that have tumbled down, but not many.
    Love this one...

  19. That is a great rock wall. I have a friend who occasionally builds these walls in the course of his work but I've never seen one.

  20. Looks like a well-built wall. In the UK there are different styles in different regions, largely dependent on the local stone.

  21. I love stone fences. I believe they are most often built by people trying to clear their land of rocks so it solves two problems at once.

  22. Very nice! A land of rocks can make a great fence!
