Last weekend, I was asked to accompany a friend down to
the country, about 60 miles from home.
It was a gorgeous Autumn day, and I decided that it
would be good for me to get away from my worries for a few hours.
There were so many things to see!
This flock of turkeys just kept coming and coming out of the high grass, down to the little pond.
I am not seeing turkeys up here right now, so it was exciting to see them.
Yes, it was a cloudy day, and I didn't realize I had my camera "eye" closed so far.
There were some gorgeous old barns.
Still standing 100 years later.
Though overgrown around the foundation, this one is still usable with some cleaning up.
Though the lean-to at the back has seen better days.
There were game trails all through the woods, and so much flora to see and photograph.
(Ashamed of myself, I had to ask)
Darnit, it's so pretty here's a second picture.
Here is Friend Jill standing in front of what is probably one of the largest cottonwoods in the State of Kansas. The trunk was unbelievable.
And yes, it's still alive.
It stands near this unused railway station... I would love to have this building, just sayin'.
And near a yard where the state honors the largest Bur Oak in the state... look at the age in 2006!
Notice the morning glories and petunias... flowers are still blooming here, and I have iris blooming in the garden.
What a mild fall we have had.
I have stopped cutting grass... oh, it could use one more, I think, but I am
not giving in. It's November, whether Mother Nature agrees or not.
I will try to get caught up with everyone's blogs this week.
Thank you again, friends, for all your wonderful expressions of sympathy.
