I'm continuing my series on barns, blooms, & birds.
Today I'm featuring another local tobacco barn around the Murray, KY, area. Take a look:
The barns hosts another beautiful quilt pattern on the side.
Another small window on the top front of the tobacco barn can be seen as in other tobacco barns. The doors are closed so not sure what's inside this time of the year.
Tobacco is growing in the fields around Murray and you can see it has a flowering bloom on the top.
I didn't realize tobacco plants bloomed but thought it would be appropriate to show the flower for my blooms section of this post. I read, as the tobacco plant reaches maturity, it produces a long spike of flower buds at the top of the plant. These plants are growing in a field down the road from me.
Last weekend we visited The Nature Station at Land Between the Lakes, we were happy to see the live wildlife in their Backyard area. The animals in this area could not survive in the wild because of either injury, being orphaned, or having lost their natural fear of humans. They are spectacular to see!
I thought the barn owl would be a perfect one to feature in my barns, blooms and birds series. He looks pretty amazing.
Yes, barn owls really do nest and roost in abandoned barns. They also nest and roost in cavities, other buildings, and dense trees. They roost during the day and hunt at night.
I'm going to feature all the owls and a few other birds at The Nature Station in another post very soon. Thanks for stopping by for another day of Life in Kentucky - Judy.
