I marveled here a while back about how much I love dry-stacked stone fences. And those were just your run-of-the-mill fences that remain down-to-earth. So imagine how I almost jumped out of my seat when I saw this fence, well, jumping!

Located at Vermont's Two Scottie Farm, this is a stone fence that took a creative approach to an old tree stump that was in the way. While most of us might imagine a fence that veers around the stump, this fence hops up over it! The result is the most beautiful, whimsical, Andy Goldsworthy-esque stone fence. It's details like this that prove that the built environment really does have a sense of humor. Don't you love it?
