Weekly photo challenge: Nostalgic

Farm fencing
Farm fencing

Odd that something so inconsequential and utilitarian as a fence can be the one thing that makes a farm in Maine take you back to Iowa. Most of the fences in New England are constructed of rocks, and I love them. The pockets of farm country in Maine are so far removed from the wide open farmland of the Midwest, but this simple fence made this countryside seem so familiar and nostalgic, because I remember climbing over and under them. But this one doesn’t have the one thing that I was most familiar with: barbed wire.

  1. Lovely Julia! Home really is where the heart is and when we are not there, wherever that is, it is often little things that take us back there. 🙂

  2. This so reminds me of some of the fencing out in the country here in Northern California where I live; most, though, is wooden rails. This is a beautiful photo.
    Thanks for the pingback!
