Don't Fence Me In

Isn't this the best looking fence you ever saw? It continues all around this manufacturing plant in Guelph. Of course, their business is steel tube and pipe rolling.

And on the same street is this yard full of weird and wonderful concrete sculptures. Can you imagine this at the end of the garden?

Beautiful picts. Hehe! Looks like you're getting pretty good with the crutches, huh? ;)

cool looking fence, nice shots!

Not really anything for my garden (which I don't have any more), but for an industrial site, I think this is very nice indeed!

Looks like iron and plaster work I saw in Italy....very grand and strong.

No, I cannot imagine that at the end of my garden . . .

-CS: the crutches and the walking stick are discarded, I'm getting along on my own steam now, stitches out tomorrow, whoopee!

-Luke and Peter: this is the neatest fence I have ever seen.

-Rosie and Tut: the whole yard is full of fanciful concrete garden adornments. Next time I go past I'll take a pic of the 15 foot high chicken!

Quite an imposing sculpture and gate. Very interesting. Our yard is large but not that big...
Glad to hear that your reovery is going so well and you can leave the crutches behind.

I was going to say I didn't like your picture.... but I didn't want you to 'Take a Fence'.

I do like your pictures and what is a better advert for the company but to have their work on display like that. The area looks fresh, clean, and well kept unlike a lot of work related yards.

-Libby: only HALF naked? Which half?

-Photo: I always make sure I cruise slowly past this fence, it's such a nice shape and colour and form.

-Tom: GROAN! Very punny!

I thought the concrete sculpture looked like something you would see at the entrance to a cemetary. Liked the fence though but a bit big for my garden.

Glad you are discarding sticks, crutches, zimmer frames etc. I tested my toe out today and went horse riding! It hurt.

I'll grit my teeth for you while you are having the stitches out!

I am a very bad patient as I won't sit still for very long. I find I can cycle as it is the ball of my foot that presses down on the pedal and I thought it would be the same riding with my foot in the stirrup! Anyway I've been talked into going again on Friday. My friend rides horses like motorbikes. She is such a dare devil!

Wow! You'd need a pretty large garden to accommodate that sculpture.

I'd have to have a mansion just to balance out the sculpture, wouldn't I!

That reall is a nice yard full of concrete sculptures. I thought, at first, it must be a cemetery but I am sure you would have recognized some of those stones as tomb stones.

I also liked the picture of the pipe manufactured there. It is neat to see that used in names.

Also wanted to thank you for all of your visits to my blog. I appreciate it. Thank you.

Yes, that joke, ex-shammickite left cracked me up and when I read it to my wife she almost got hysterical. It was nice to see her laughing after 52 years of marriage.

Thanks again.
