I like running because I see things you'd never pick up from a car. I bet you don't know what this is.
And her old-fashioned cow trough.
I stop and look back to photograph the outbuildings. Because I'm pretty sure that somebody who'd cut down all those beautiful trees is also going to raze the outbuildings. I know I sound like a pessimist, but I've seen it all too many times. People come out here and buy up old farms and the first thing they do is start knocking stuff down. I guess they want it all to look like a parking lot. Clean slate and all that. And oh, I love these outbuildings. Yes, they lean. Yes, they're decrepit. But that doesn't mean you have to tear them down. Time will do that for you.
Gotta go! Har! I love this shot.
Oh that river Eupatorium, she is such a beautiful lavender river, flowing between the hayrolls.
A few lucky plants can still enjoy the September sunshine. Ahh. I stop to bask with them.
