An Unusual Fence

One of our good friends, Richard, lives in the United Kingdom. He enjoys photography as a hobby. Although he is not a blogger, he is a loyal follower of John's Island and enjoys following a number of other blogs including the Good Fences meme, hosted by Tex of the Run*Around*Ranch Report. Richard has sent us pictures to use for Good Fences in the past and recently sent yet another fascinating fence he found in the area around Norfolk County, UK. This is quite a unique brick fence and we sure thank Richard for sharing! Can you imagine how the bricklayer put this together?


Find more Good Fences here. Thanks to Tex for hosting.

As long as we're posting for the memes, here are two for SkyWatch Friday. First pic was snapped on the afternoon of April 23rd. After several days of unusually warm, mostly sunny, and dry weather, the clouds rolled in and it was a bit stormy. We like the way the sunlight plays with the clouds.
