Cowpoke Fence

Been playing with some landscape stuffs and this is what you see now when you pull into the driveway.. I call it our "Cowpoke Fence". The boards are from an old farm near here and are very rustic with the posts being pine poles. Our horse trainer friend gave us this old saddle and the skull is actually from a water buffalo that belonged to another friend till it went to the meat market.... Mike forfeited the boots and that is an old hat of mine. Wrought iron welcome sign was a gift from Mike to me and we got the lanterns at a garage sale. An old lariat was also the trainer's. In all, this small piece of landscaping has a lot of "heart" in it with meaning.


And then this little diddy along the side of the house called "Boot Hill". I have boots planted with sedums all around the rocks. Mike gets rather embarrassed when I find old boots along the road.. That's an old antique ladder with old insulators leaning on the house... Great color spot with some of the insulators being blue.... The sign is hanging from an old fashioned water pump
