Good Fences ~ Money to Burn


Even if I could


I don't
 think I would want this

But who's to say what happens to the mind
 when there is money to burn.

Taken in Lake Geneva WI
which is a getaway for wealthy Chicagoan's 

Seriously... this is a summer home. 

Linking with Theresa's

  1. Beautiful! Personally, I am glad that some oeople still have money to burn. That set-up employed a lot of people and there may be a landscape gardener employed yet! Besides all that, it sure is lovely. The Brits can't have all the pretty gates and flowers.

  2. That is an impressive gate. Great shot!

  3. Seriously, you've got me thinking! I do enjoy the grand entrance and naturally I'm more than curious on what it looks like behind the fence!

  4. Wow. That's quite ostentatious. Blech. Not something I would want. But we all have our individual tastes and likes. That just looks like a place I wouldn't want to enter without a ball gown. Lol

  5. I have friends who have similar - one family has more homes than they know what to do with as they're scattered about the country, one even overseas - but personally I couldn't be bothered having to concern myself with all that upkeep, even if I did have the money to employ caretakers! Our small house, just 1200 sf, is more than enough for me, especially at this time of life!
    Vee - there are some beautiful UK country estates with ornate entrances, but most Brits don't live like that - take my word for it! I grew up there with no central heat and one tiny bathroom, and it was all lovely - but a home is what you make of it, right?

    Jeanne, thanks for sharing, and have a fabulous weekend. . . . . knowing you don't have to hire a small army to take care of your property, LOL!

  6. Hello, what a grand entrance. I am sure the rest of the place is gorgeous too. Have a happy day!

  7. Nope it is not for me. For some reason (I cannot tell why) I find this place ghostly. Great shot though for the meme

  8. A summer home? Uhhhhhhhh, what does their winter home look like? It's gotta be a run-down cabin in the hills, right? LOL

    Pretty tho.

  9. Wow for a "summer" home it sure is fancy! That entrance is quite grand and the flowers are gorgeous. Of course they probably have a professional gardener.

  14. If I had that kind of money, I could find a lot better ways to spend it. The flowers are beautiful, but the fence is a bit much. Kind of "in your face" rich which we have way to much of in this country especially in our politics. But, I will credit you with a wonderful picture ... Nice job, Jeanne
