I think it is one of the most beautiful churches I have seen.
I don't know why I had never thought to google it, but I had not until tonight:
Redpath Memorial Presbyterian Church in Cross Village. The Church was
organized in February, 1888 and dedicated in 1890. It was destroyed by
fire in 1918, to be rebuilt in 1921, through the efforts of The Rev.
John Redpath, for whom the church is named. For many years the church
stood empty and unused. Through the efforts of two young couples the
church reopened in 1965 for summer worship.
The above was from a facebook page for it seen HERE. And there is a great photo of it there.
I have shown this barn before, but it has been a while....every time I run across the pictures of it, it makes me smile.
We were coming home from Sarah's, when she lived at Indianapolis...or we may have just met them at the half way point for them to pick up Lorelei. Anyway, we decided to take a detour and drive some of the backroads on the way home. Imagine my joy when we spotted this barn...at first we see this view....but wait!
There's more on the side! Isn't that cool!
So, I am thinking this is all....and in my opinion wonderful.
But we are not done yet!
This scene so captured my eye that I do not even remember what it was an entry to. I honestly don't think I noticed. I love rock walls/rock work of any kind...then there are those black hollyhocks. They would so match my irises that are almost black.
I have never seen Queen Anne's lace quite like this...they usually are more flatter. For sure never so round and thick as this one. It has that center dark flower, but if you know it to be something different, please comment and tell.
I think this is some type of Fritillary butterfly...I am not sure which one. It was so hard to get a photo of it...I am amazed that these shots are as good as it is because it did not hold still for more than a couple seconds. And please if this is not a fritillary, please tell in the comments.
The above photo is cropped from the original.
This is a little guy...not sure what he is.
He was a tiny bit better than the Fritillary but not by a lot. These are the best two of the shots I took of him.
Leave you with a another type of butterfly...a group shot. Not the best...but still fun to see.
