Well Drilling in Harper TX

In the little town of Harper, near us along Hwy 290, there is a well-drilling business, Pickens Drilling Co., which has this very unusual entrance, so thought I'd share it with Good Fences.Thanks for hosting!



Note the color of the brick on the fence and the building and the mock drilling rig on the right. There is also a contrasting fence between each of the brick columns. There are also some sort of plant on each of the main posts, kind of hard to see, but notice the bloom on the left.  They aren't real.

Happy Thursday

Wow! At first glance, I thought this was a picture of a church -- ha! The fence seems fancier than the building its guarding! What a fun picture.

Around here I think the drilling companies have to go down 600 feet to hit water.

very cool.

i was curious - i noticed on your google + page that you have lived in several states. do you have a favorite? did your work move you around? or? i have lived in VA since birth. so i am always interested in folks who move around a lot. very fun i bet. ( :

Fabulous find. I think it's very interesting. The plants on the top are cool as well. Sort of has an (Indian) feel to it.

What a unique place! Fancy for well drilling, or any kind of drilling!

Felicia said...

they are unusual but very pretty.

Casey Jones said...

That is interesting to see how they used to drill wells. We have come a long ways since then. We now have much bigger and more efficient machinery!
