When pigs fly

I bet you didn't know pigs had wings...I didn't either till I saw this one that had sprouted wings.

How about some portable Good Fences?

From the Trader's Fair weekend before last.  There were at least one or two more puppies in this little fenced in area, but this one was the cutest.
Another place had gates set up as fencing for donkeys.
And someone there was actually selling barbed wire.

Participating in the Barn Collective...

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.
And this I converted to B&W....

Trying to patiently wait

I am waiting on my wisteria to even start budding out...I have no other choice.  Sometimes I can be patient, others I am wondering just how much longer it will be.

Old and used...

These are more items seen at the Croy Creek Trader's Fair...
I didn't look at the prices.  I kind of wish I had just to know.

A cluttered photo...

This is a cluttered photo, but think it worthy of posting.  I think you will like it better if you click to expand the view.

A Good Fence post

This is a fence I had the chance to photograph a few days ago...first this up close view.
 Then this one looking back the way we had come.
Here looking ahead to the way we will be going.
And this barn is across the road with its own kind of fencing!

It is time for Good Fences...won't you joing me at The Run Around Ranch Report for Good Fences?

Seen in Mansfield, Indiana

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,

Would you want this Man Cave?

This was at the Trader's Fair this past weekend...
The gentleman was there and notice me taking the picture...he opened the door for some reason,  and it looked as if the only thing inside was a sleeping bag.

For the Barn Collective...

Saw this barn a few years ago...
It looks like a well used barn...
Then there is this one from in March of this year.  Compared to the one above, it looks just so lonely.

I hope you will join the fun at Amy's Barn Collective.

Here kitty, kitty!

We went to the Croy Creek Trader's Fair today...this was one of the first things that caught my eye.
Someone has a lot of imaginaton!

A different view...

Here is a different view of the truck shown in Thursday's good fences.  I like it in the monotones as much as I like the color version.

Dutchman's breeches and ???

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 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.

Time for some fences...

Found this today...I just love it.  It isn't too far from here, maybe 6-8 miles.  And a country drive for the most part.
This is a bit different...but going to put it here because that is a fence behind the daffodils.

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.

from last fall

Just a pretty little scene from an autumn day last year.  Taken in Madison, Indiana.

For the Barn Collective

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.

Mother Goose on the loose....

 Mother or Father goose...not sure which.
Even though it looked at me, it did not seem concerned...
On the other side of the boardwalk was it's least that is what I think since they were so close together.

Turtle Line-up

 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.

Springing back into blogging with fences...

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 is from over near Arthur, Illinois.
If I remember, I will be linking to Tex's Good Fences.
