COUNTRY FENCES #14 | NOTHING FANCY FARM in WINCHESTER KY

Today is Good Fences link up day! 
A courtesy of the  The Run*A*Round Ranch Report

Here's a beautiful old farm I pass by now and then in Winchester, KY.
It's called the
"Nothin' Fancy Farm."
(Click on photos for a much larger view"

And if you look closely above that white sign, there appears to be another that has almost broken away. I think it once said, "Eggs for Sale."



I'm posting this with the Good Fences link up today, which is a stretch since the fence is hard to see. But there is a fence over to the left. You just gotta look for it.

And also, right on down the road from this cute, old farm is some beautiful wood plank fencing.


These fences just keep going and going in this area of the horse farms.

 I am also going to join a new linkup called Through My Lens Nr. 10

GOOD FENCES in the Country #13

It's Good Fences Day and time to linkup with

Here are some country pics from when I went on a drive on a dreary Sunday afternoon, earlier this year.
 We have tons of this type of black, wooden fences in our area.
When you come to a large farm, it looks so nice rolling up and down the hills.
 You can see a few cows grazing in the back.

 This gravel road leads to an Amish farm. See the buggy tracks in and out.
A broken rail that that will soon be mended.

And for a last one, here's some hay rolls out in a field.
I take so many of these, I hope I haven't shared this one yet.
Cause it was also from a lot earlier this year.

BACKROAD COUNTRY FENCES #11


Here's a few shots from when I followed a cute, little, back country road a bit on a day trip.


 And then it led me to the gate entry almost overgrown.
I love coming up on country places like this.
Wow, this has made the 11th week I've joined the:
Thanks so much for hosting it!

My Ride to the Amish Store #10

Hey ya'll!
Today is Thursday which means time to share some ole' country fence pics. 
And much thanks to  Run*A*Round Ranch Report for hosting the weekly linkup!
For this weeks pics, I thought I'd share some back roads, country pics from the beautiful ride that leads me to our local Amish store. I love dropping in time to time to just see how things are still done without all the modern technology we are so use to.  The shelves are old wooden plank boards that are neatly stacked.  The floors are squeaky old boards that let people know where you are. I just love the ole' timely feeling. My aunt still gets her big ole' country, fresh, brown eggs here every week.
My eggs in a crock. You can leave farm fresh eggs out of the fridge as long as they have never been in one.

Here is some of what I see.
 Heading in towards the area there are tons of fences and winding roads.
Look close and you can see the worn buggy markings on the road.

Up and down hills and banks...

 Just follow the Amish buggy marks in the roads...

Then after about 30 minutes of those views above, I get to turn onto an old, country gravel drive.




 And it starts to lead me right up to the beautiful two story home, barns and silos  and the Amish store sitting right at top.

This is my favorite pic showing the side of a barn where the buggies are stored.

I didn't take any photos of the store or home on purpose because there were people outside working and children playing closeup. And it is against Amish beliefs to be photographed face on since they firmly believe in the Commandments that states, "Thou shalt not make any graven image or likeness of any thing."
And if I were to still take a photograph of them by knowing this, then there would be a burden upon me for doing so.
 
Maybe my next visit no one will be outside and I can show off the cute little country store.


And after purchasing my bag of oats and blackberry jam and my Aunt having her eggs in tow, we headed back out of the quaint, quiet area,



and back into modern civilization.

On our way home....

OLD FENCES in AUGUSTA KY #9

Hey ya'll!
Today I'm joining up with  Run*A*Round Ranch Report to share some country fence photos in Augusta, KY.
Friday, (Aug. 28th) I took a ride up to the Ohio River and had lunch with my Aunt Marlene. 
Just a picnic we had packed. Home made chicken salad, Ritz crackers, chips, assorted donuts for dessert and of course, Ale-8 (most popular pop here in KY) to wash it all down with.
Then we just sat around, watching everyone come and go...
Watched the Jenny Ann ferry (oldest ferry still on the Ohio River) come and go a few times too...
(Still only $5 for a car and foot travel is free)
Click here to see a live cam view from the Augusta website.

Looked around at a few landmarks...
This is the Welcome center and Rotary Railroad Museum. Isn't it so cute?
 Visited a few shops...
I loved this little shop btw, the owner was the nicest I met all day! I could've just talked to her all day. If you ever visit, be sure to drop in Ninas!
I heard George Clooney makes his home here on the River.
I'm not a big celebrity person, but I do think that man is awesome.
I never ran into him, but my Aunt has seen him in front of this little, cute store called Nina's....
on a tv thing, gearing up for the Labor Day celebration called Heritage Days.
It was the most perfect weather ever.
And as always, I was still looking around for some cute fences. I found tons, but here are a few I loved.
I am a sucker for about any corner fence out there, so I loved this one.







As you can tell, I love old, wooden fences the most. But every now and then others catch my eye too...
 
 
Home of General John Payne
Est: 1792
Now a B&B on the river...

And here is a partial back view:

One thing is to say for sure about this town. It is just lovely.
The people are friendly and the streets were all kept very neat and tidy. Most of the shops were still ran by long time owners and you could tell they were proud of that. I just love little ole' towns like this.
I even got to sit outside one, in makeshift farming machine seats, while a tiny shop was "Gone for 5 minutes."  And they really were, lol. 

It was just an old time relaxing kinda day to let your worries go away.

Thanks again to Good Fences for the linkup!

Good Ole Country Fences #6

It's that time of week again!

Time to share some good ole' country fence pics.
And here is a few good ole' country fences I have found right around here in KY.

Just look at those ole' weathered posts!

And then on down the road just a tad bit...

was this cute, curvy driveway with the little creak running under it.

And just look at that big ole' tree standing out there in the back alone.
 I bet the cattle (if there is any) love that shade tree to death in the summer.

Thanks for stopping in again for my country fences and barns posts.

And thanks a million to
for the weekly linkup!

See ya'll next time!
