Good Fences, Bloomer, Wisconsin


 Good Fences, Bloomer, WI

I like it when fences just present themselves, instead of my trying to track them down. I like this combination of stone wall and picket fence. Reminds me of two Confederate generals. (I suffer from Word Association Syndrome.)  ;-)


And just across the street, the feed mill and dam

 Reflections on Lake Como

From the Wisconsin DNR website:

"Como Lake (Bloomer Mill Pond) is a 97 acre lake located in Chippewa County. It has a maximum depth of 6 feet. Visitors have access to the lake from a public boat landing, one public land or park within 1000 feet of the lake (Moose Fair Grounds). Fish include Panfish, Largemouth Bass and Northern Pike."

I like the combo fence with the stone and wood. Great reflections in the water, too.

Ginny said...

What a lovely place! I have never seen a fence on a wall before (at least I think not) Very interesting.

Ida said...

That first shot of the fence/stonewall is wonderful. I like how you suffer from word association. All your shots were lovely. You do live in a scenic area.

Christine said...

I loved the fence and wall together!
Great views too!

Gina said...

Gorgeous sunset! And I do love that first picture of the fence & wall. Thank you for sharing with us!

Karen S. said...

Wow, it certainly does stand out proud and true, we don't see many designs like that anymore. Lovely shot of the lake too.

Terra said...

Small world; my sister has a vacation place in Bloomer on a lake. I visited her there once. She and her husband enjoy bass fishing. Nice fences!

podso said...

On a good fence morning, those are good fences, especially the first, and look at the steps up (called style in England??? or something like that). Great photos!

Maureen @ Josephina Ballerina said...

Stonewall and Pickett are like peanut butter and jelly in that photo. They go together real well. Especially with milk. Or, in my case, Silk soy milk.
:) m & jb who does not like milk but who Does like Lactaid vanilla ice cream

Marie C said...
