Be careful if you count the sheep, you might fall asleep. You’ll have to look a bit hard to find the other two animals… I missed them entirely until I uploaded the photo as I was focused on getting the line of sheep. Going peach picking put us right in the heart of farming land and I captured quite a few interesting moments.
I think we’ve been spotted 😉
We had just left the peach orchard and were taking the long way around (which meant nothing but farms as far as we could see) to get to the highway that would take us home when DH suddenly stops and pulls over and says “LOOK!” Mind you, I was looking straight ahead at an interesting barn when this happened. He points to my right and I say “So it’s a couple of deer statues?” After a minute or two the statues began to move cautiously. I rolled the window down and leaned over a bit to get this shot.
Wonder where mom was?
Slipping in a barn that I photographed from the moving car going down the highway when we returned from our trip to the private gardens. I don’t think it’s too terribly abandoned but it has a wonderful rusty patina about it as does the vehicle and the other buildings next to it.
Monday I posted this image in black and white. For the holiday weekend, I am sharing with you what it looks like in color as promised. Have a happy and safe Memorial Day weekend and see you next week.
I drove past this old barn – featured here in April – yesterday and it was reduced to just a small pile of wood. The home in front of it still stood but they have begun to remove parts of it too; soon it will be no more as well. I wonder who got to keep all of that old barn wood? And there it was, a big sign saying what will be coming soon! I looked it up and found the name of the original farm family and how the land has been approved for over 500 homes! That must have been a pretty big farm then. I could never see before how far back it went because of the trees; trees which too are all gone now leaving behind just the machine leveled bare land.
I felt sad and thought how traffic along that road is going to be horrible one day, they’ll probably have to widen roads and do more digging up of what was once a bucolic area, and the schools will become even more crowded. Hooray for man modifying his surroundings yet again. Why do I feel like the Lorax now?
