For my Barn Collective post, I am featuring some barns from southern Indiana. I would really love to see what is on beyond the big red barn. Do you see the tan building I am talking about? What I can see really looks interesting.
This one does not pull at my heartstrings, but it is big, and well cared for...
This one looked interesting to me...I would love to know what it is used for.
Every October, there is a Covered Bridge Festival in Parke Country, Indiana. Almost every little town has vendors of some sort. Parke County is a farming county....the entire population of Parke county in 2010 was less than 20,000. But come October, starting the second Friday and lasting for ten days, things change. The Covered Bridge festival has been estimated to draw more than 2 million visitors,
I had the opportunity to photograph some wild flowers yesterday...I am not as agile as I used to be so getting up and down off my knees is not so easy. So I am for sure not getting down on my belly! So these are the best I could do...the top is Dutchman's breeches
This one I have not tried to identify...it is almost like a wild bleeding heart.
And I know the name of this but cannot say it for the life of me. Do you ever do that--know something but can't say it? I always say my brain has hit a blank spot. Maybe a better word would be it has hit a scratch--remember how records used to get scratched.
Oh, it's a Trout Lily! I found it on the net...did not even have to look at the picture.
Remember this post....this picture shows the size of my husband's hand compared to parts of it. I can really see men getting hurt when trying to work on it. It is so big and heavy, it could crush a hand or arm or anything that got caught in it.
For Amy's Barn Collective, I am digging through the archives. These were all from the year 2010. (Can you believe that we are living in the year 2015--I remember when the year 2000 was way in the future!)
Anyway, green is still looking good to me after this dreary winter. I know by the time July and August get here, I will be looking forward to fall colors, but right now I just want to enjoy the green.
This one has been published before...
As well as this one...I enjoyed running across them again, and hope some of you will enjoy seeing them.
One year we were taking our granddaughter home, and there was a box turtle in the road...we
stopped for it and I got out and held it up for her to see and touch.
That was two or three years ago, and she was talking about it as we were
taking her home.
When we take her home, we take back roads part of the way. We always pass this little pond.
We were so glad to all these turtles. Again we stopped...she had to unbuckle till she could stand up and see! And wanted to make sure I showed them to her mom.
Believe it or not, I have not attempted to count how many there were.
This is a scanned version of a shot from 1994. I have published it before but that was a few years ago and it just makes me want to chuckle to look at. Hog Wallow Hotel should be the title. I have literally spent hours and hours looking for this shot. Finally thought to look at my other blog and found it.
Thought I would throw this one in as well...it is from over near Arthur, Illinois.
If I remember, I will be linking to Tex's Good Fences.
