Walled off




This is part of an old wall which originally surrounded the property that was recently developed into the new park near my house. You would never know from these pictures that there is a busy highway on the other side. I'm so glad they left the wall there because I really like the way it looks, especially with all the vines covering it.

This wall is close enough to being a fence that I am linking this post to Good Fences.

the wall is over grown but interesting and would keep the traffic noise away from you. I am all for keeping sold stuff, it is part of our heritage there is too much knocking down of all things old.

A natureza tomou conta do muro.

Hello, the wall is nice especially if it hides the busy highway. The pink blooms are pretty. Great fence find!
Happy Thursday, enjoy your day!

It looks very quiet indeed, glad they left the wall there with all the greens.

It's good that the wall serves a purpose blocking out the traffic noise pollution.

I like the wall, too. There's a certain mystery to it and a bit of suspense so would make a good "fence." I also read recently that those walls they build along the interstates and Turnpike do basically nothing to mitigate the road noise. The politicians must have received some big "donations" from the right people to authorize such a waste. The walls do block the view for the people living in those areas, though, and I guess that's something.

i am glad they saved it too...i like those pretty pink flowers growing as well!

It seems surprising that there is a busy highway on the other side as the wall makes me think of a secret garden beyond and all you have to do is lift the overhanging vines to find the hidden door!
Love it!

Hello Lois!:) I'm with Christine with this one, it also reminds me of the outer walls of a secret garden. I like it,and your pictures.:)

I would never have guessed about the road on the other side. It looks so peaceful.

William Kendall said...

Those vines make it all the more appealing.

LV said...

Also, probably cuts out some of the road noise.

I expected there to be an old mansion on the other side! ;-)

That is a really neat looking wall and the vines spilling over are wonderful.

It looks solid. Thanks for sharing. With vines spilling over it becomes a beautiful wall!

A new park is always something to celebrate -- I like that they left this wall and the hay barn in the post above -- adds interest visually and contributes to remembering the history of the place. Very nice.

If they even think about knocking the wall down you will have to gather up and protest Lois :)
