I am thinking this is a Buttercup, but don't know for sure....can anyone confirm or tell me what it is? There used to be flowers I seen as a kid that we called buttercups, but this is a lot bigger than they were.
We actually went for a drive a week or two ago...and this is a kitty I saw out in the country. Isn't it a beauty. Roger told me I could not have it...well, I didn't want it. I also think it belonged to a farm we had just passed.
I wish I had not cut that tree off on the right side, but I was shooting from the car and would have gotten my rear view mirror in the frame. And the road was to busy to stop and get out. And no place to pull off.
I was doing a bit of weeding this morn, and looked back in the bucket I throw the weeds in and this was laying on top! Isn't it gorgeous. I had to lay my gloves on it to keep the wind from moving it/blowing it away.
We saw this yesterday...it is near a favorite house that I like to drive past. We wondered about it. It is out in the country with only one or two houses even close. I have never seen a kid on that road at all. It is probably a two mile stretch of road and at the most a dozen houses scattered along it.
I cannot believe it, but this is the 4th Bald Eagle nest that I know of. I cannot get a good view of two of them...one is a lot closer to the road than this one, but even if something is on it, it would have to be sitting on the edge towards the road or I would never see.
This was just someone's house...in Illinois. I wonder if they are tools they grew up with. In case you don't know, the double-tree is the thing behind the blue koiloil lamp on the right. It is used to attach a pair of horses to the same implement. And the ones directly below it are single trees, to use one horse with. The things at their side are the hames...I can't remember just how they attach to the horse, but I think to the collar...and then the traces (part of the harness attaching impliment till the horses can pull. They are made from chains....at least I think ours were.)
