Old and new


The land that was acquired to build the new county park near where I live used to be a farm. You can still see part of the old fence and the old gate that was once an entrance to the farm from the road near one of the new walking paths. I showed an old hay barn from this same park in a previous post here.

Linking to Good Fences.

I remember the old hay barn. Glad they left these remnants of the farm. Re your comment on Ocala: I don't think you'd have trouble photographing anything, including Spanish moss! You are one hell of a good photographer!

You can still imagine that the gate leads to a farm.

It's a great picture. I love that they kept part of the old farm.... a nice tribute to the property's history .... I also love that it was acquired as public parkland ....

Great old fence and gate!...funny how the old can't really compare to the new:)

Halcyon said...

Old and new mixes well together in this case! :-)

How neat that the old fence/gate were left there. The new trail looks like a great place to take a walk.

It's nice that they left it there, Lois!

I love this shot of the new fence as it wends its way through the field, but oh the draw of the old gateway is much more inviting for me!

awww. glad it could be used for park and public enjoyment instead of development, though.

I hoped they stained the new wood. Doesn't take long for it to get gray. Some people like the grayed-out wood, I think it's ugly
