Chateau farm fences

In the wheat cropping areas of France
many farms don't have boundary fences
as there are no animals to contain.

After driving for miles with no fences
I was excited to see this hedge
along the roadside boundary of
the Chateau farm.

The Chateau was hidden until we came
to a clearing and 
all of a sudden there it was....
a pretty chateau
complete with simple farm fences!

I'm joining Tex for Good Fences

Thank you for your comments
take care and
be kind to one another

à bientôt

  2. Gorgeous chateau - France is so amazing. Thank you for sharing it, Shane. xx

  3. Hello Shane! This chateau is just gorgeous! i love those moments when anticipation gives way to sheer delight at the view opening up before us! Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful day!

  8. What a pleasure to take this little excursion with you and have the lovely surprise of the magnificent chateau's appearance. France is certainly a beautiful country.


  9. I love a nice cedar hedge and the view of the chateau is so pretty. Deer love cedar trees so we've learned not to plant them anymore in our area due to the large number of deer. Have a beautiful weekend Shane.
    Blessings, Pam
