Here's That Fence Again


  1. "That fence" reminds me of the split cedar rail fence that surrounds my yard. It is about a dozen years old now, aged a bit, but still the castle moat. Of course the fence keeps nothing out, but gives the satisfying feel of
    being in the old west of a century back. That, and being on the edge of town where the coyotes still
    serenade in the wee hours.

    1. Some of my favorite fences in the world are the "snake" fences on Manitoulin Island, where bedrock is the Canadian shield, not welcoming to fence posts. These split-rail fences have the same split posts but uprights that are lacking in the snake fences. And oh, yeah? Coyotes? Us, too.
