Good fences make good neighbors


  1. Could you explain what you mean ???

    Barbed wire is not so friendly fence !

    But I like you macro pic !!!!!!

  2. @Nukke The saying implies that with a fence between neighbors you can each maintain your privacy. When people become complacent about their neighbors privacy or wishes then ill feelings can occur. If your neighbor has the run of your yard there is always the chance that they might do something against your wishes. This does not imply that they are going to irritate you on purpose but there is the chance. A fence between the properties will eliminate the chance that they may trespass into something that you do not want to share. This is also not just about a physical fence. It also means that your neighbors should not have free run of the knowledge of your lives and what goes on in your household. There has to be boundaries in all relationships which would constitute a fence. In regard to the actual fence it should be low enough to allow communication between the neighbors while keeping some things out. The same applies to the personal fence. Do not build a stone wall between each other that allows for no communication.

  3. What a great photo, and perfect explanation of the saying. This is one of my faves! :o)

  4. Brilliant comment, Shiju, and I do agree with you. Here in this country, you rarely see barbed wire fences except out in the country or on ranches. Most fences between houses are decorative and much more attractive and, often, the cost of them is shared by neighbors.

    Privacy is important in our lives. Sometimes, I think too much is shared openly.
