Country scenes we love!
Charles and I both love all things country (in scenery) and all things OLD! Old barns have always been favorites ...also sunflowers...cows...horses...fields of wildflowers (any and all kinds) ...old houses... old tractors and trucks...old folks too! :)
To end my Alabama posts I want to share a few more country scenes we enjoyed this trip. It was raining the times we were out, as some of the pictures will show!
The old cotton shed still stands!
Go here for a story from my husband's childhood, concerning this old log building!
The white flowers are 'Queen Anne's Lace', a wild flower that grows in meadows and along roadways, throughout Alabama. I always associated it with Alabama but my search tells me this plant grows in every state in the USA and much of the world!
This is an interesting website with lots of info about Queen Anne's Lace!
The purple flower also grows wild in this area. This is the Passion Flower, also known as May-Pop. It has edible fruit. I remember finding these on walks with my mom when I was a young girl and eating the sweet fruit!
Here is a website about this plant!
