Like I mentioned in my last post, there’s a lot of devastation in America right now. I don’t like a lot of what’s going on here politically but I do LOVE my country. Sometimes, I think it’s good for all of us to remember what we love about living here. When you think of America, what do you see in your mind? What does it mean to you?
Here’s what it means to me. This is America where I live and I’d protect her any way I was able 🙂
Isn’t this beautiful? It’s just a little farm I drive by all the time and most days take it for granted. Love the plainness of the bars against the brilliant green of April!
Sandy Creek Covered Bridge. She needs some work, eh? This is actually a National Park that we visit and it’s only a mile or two from our back door.
(Entrance into our covered bridge. It was closed to the public for repairs. I’ve never been much for rule following so I didn’t give much thought to jumping the gate. Obviously, neither did my girls. lol It was worth it to get these shots though)
This is just a little farm getting ready to be flooded out. I’m just loving the April colors again, even in the rain 🙂
Just another farmer’s field.
Just another house I drive by all the time. My daughter tells me this is a “foster kid” house. Kind of like an orphanage. They just take care of a lot of homeless children who the courts have ordered into the “foster” system, for one reason or another.
Sometimes even weeds can be pretty, right?
I see this almost every day but have never stopped to take a picture. Can you see the eagles nests in the trees? They nest right by the flooded creek that I posted about in my last post. Pretty dang cool!
The farm below my house. Right now it’s flooded.
Here’s the reason I love to drive home! This is probably the coolest barn I’ve seen ANYWHERE in the USA and it lives right below me.
Some more weeds with muddy flood waters.
Okay, this is another favorite of mine. The 6 silo barn that used to be the old Pevely Dairy. People actually have transformed the ENORMOUS barn into living quarters. A wedding was recently held there and it was beautiful!
Really I have no words for how this one grabs my heart! I might even have it framed. It’s the front of the 6 silo barn. Americana at it’s best!
