Every Thursday we like to post a picture of something we've found online that inspires us to do something similar at the farm. Sort of our own blog bulletin board so that we can eventually look back and someday, hopefully anyway, recreate it...enjoy!

Split rail fence image via
Yes another one, ha.  We've always found split rail fences to just look so nice and rustic.  A couple of weeks back we posted an L-shaped split rail fence that had a flower bed around it.  This week we found this one that is a really neat feature for the side of a side or the middle of a yard to separate an area.  Love the plants in here too.  Not sure what they all are but they are pretty and have nice height.

Be inspired!


  1. I do like the rail fence planting in the yard; not only does it give color but gives it that all around rustic look.

    Those right up front I believe are the Red Yucca Succulent plants.

    The white flowered ones are yucca plants; Watch out for them as they have very sharp points on the end; like pointed needles and they will draw blood if you get poked. We have some in our yard and are spreading like crazy.

    The yellow flowered ones I think are the Daylily Stella d'Oro

    The orange flowered ones are also a lily of some sort. Possibly what they call a ditch lily. Really hard to tell from the angle of the photo.
    From what I can tell; those are plants that will come up every year and they all will spread as well.

  2. A very pretty way to separate two areas or to create a focal point for an area.
