A Good Fence Just for Looks


Near Napa, California

While out looking for earthquake damage I thought this might make for a GOOD FENCE entry.

It serves no purpose other than to look nice.

If you came here from Theresa's Good Fences and are interested in seeing some effects of the 6.0 August 24 earthquake near Napa, Ca., here are some to look at from earlier posts to my blog.
The most dramatic one is here.
These other two show cracks in the earth here and here.

  2. Yes it looks like a fence just for the show, it leads not to a road or so.

  4. It certainly makes a statement, even if it is non-functional.

  9. Strange fence.

    I really do not see the purpose of it as a gate. I too think it should go across more.

  12. Apparently the owners of the area wanted just an eye catcher for their place. It is a nice fence tho.

  13. It makes for a good conversation piece. I like how you aligned the building in the background with it.

  15. Well, everything must have a beginning! Lovely as it is.

  16. This is quite an ornate piece of fencing but it does make you wonder why they didn't make it longer. I'd like to know what the building is used for behind it.

  18. It is pretty and maybe it provides some sense of boundary.

  19. Nice ornamental fence. I looked at your earthquake pics. That's pretty scary, but it could have been much worse, I suppose.

  20. It certainly is a beautiful fence and it looks like it's serving it's purpose. Is there a garden behind it? Thanks for your visit.

  24. John, I think they just put up a fence and gate so you would have a picture for your Good Fences! Thanks for topping by my blog...I'll come back for another visit.

  25. If the low hedge was taller on either side, it would look much better. It's a beautiful gate never the less.

  26. It is pretty, but just sort of strange.

    The earthquake shots are quite interesting.
