Great Ideas!!

What a wonderful surprise this morning to wake up to 5 comments and several great suggestions related to yesterday's post (scroll down if you haven't seen my plea for help!).
As Layanee says the wrought iron would be unreasonably pricey for my budget and I admit it is too fancy for the style of my house I think...though the neighboring towns are known for their Connecticut River farms and lots of corn!
I hadn't thought about a formal cut split rail. I grew up with one of those. I'll have to think about that. I like the wooden "picket" fence idea but maybe with the flat tops not the pointy ones? A little less"countryish?" Same with the stockade idea (I am not into the pointy tips). But I think something along those lines may be right on. Hadn't thought of dark green. hmmmm... or maybe staining it a gray that will complement the slightly funky gray blue that the house will be. Off to UMass to teach now but later I will google or flckr for pictures. If anyone has any additional ideas my blog "ears and eyes" are still open!

Thanks!

Google 'Walpole fences'. They have beautiful fences (ridiculous prices too) They show quite formal post and rail fences. One style I like is called Kentucky and it has X's across it.

That wrought iron fence was stunning but they are oh so expensive around here.
