Through Barbed Wire

What can you see through a barbed wire fence? No city streets, no glorious architecture, no people?
So what is there to see? If you never look, how much of life you miss. You might miss a wild pink rose bush stirred into the green windblown grasses.
A pasture fenced with barbed wire is a common sight in Oklahoma.
 Pasture roses climb old fences and gradually weigh them down. 
Foxglove beard Tongue blooming along the fenceline.
Prairie Plantain in the thick summer grasses with wild grape vine climbing the fence like a trellis.
Here is foxglove just beginning to blossom.
Coreopsis and coneflowers
The cattle graze across green ranch lands.
Trees slowly retake a pasture where no animals graze.
Clover and milk weed in the spring grass show through rusty barbed wire.
A green pasture full of plants.
A roofless stone shed tells of earlier landholders.
A curious donkey comes to look back at passersby.
A bird on the fence watching for flying snacks.
The Big Oklahoma Sky!
