Homestead


A favorite from 2010
On "the Lexington Road" in Lauderdale County, Alabama
The last time I went by, the barn had fallen.

like the metal roof and the rusty roofs on the barn and grain bin.

It looks so tranquil, I can imagine pulling up a chair and just whiling away the hours there.

A very pretty country scene. Having been raised on a farm, I can appreciate these sights so much.

Hi Amy, So glad to hear from you... Hope you are doing okay. Glad you visited my blog hearing about my BIG birthday!!!

Love that photo... Reminds me of some of the old homes near my hometown... There used to be LIFE there ---lots of LIFE... Always makes me wonder what the house (or barn) say if they could TALK....????

Hugs,
Betsy

I get a sense of home when I look at this shot. I can imagine grandma and mom sitting under that huge tree snapping green beans. A cool summer breeze rustling the leaves. Yes! Love it! Thanks for linking up!

What a shame that it's left to the elements. I imagine the builders of this place would have some stories to tell.
