Continuing my series . . .
Barns . . .
Wow, do I have a tobacco barn for you this week. My husband and I were driving around Calloway County in Kentucky looking for a specific address of a boat marine to possibly get out boat serviced. As we were driving on Pottertown Road, I saw an unusual tobacco barn just off the road. It was not the typical shaped tobacco barn that I have shared with you over the weeks. It wasn't like any of these below.
We ventured on and found the marine and as we started back, I told my husband I wanted to stop and take a few pics of the unusual tobacco barn. Take a look:
It was like an old log cabin at first glance and was right in the owner's backyard. It had no extensions or extra rooms, it just went straight up. There were probably rows or levels to hang the tobacco on the inside.
Although it was unusual, it had barn doors, with a log keeping the doors shut just like other tobacco barns.
I saw a small window at the top and an open ventilation system on the side also at the top.
Traffic was coming up and down this narrow county road with no shoulder and there I was trying to get pics with my iPhone.
OK, it was time to move on before I got hit by a car. But what do you think about this tobacco barn?
On to blooms now . . .
I have a pot of beautiful begonias blooming by my porch. I must admit, I haven't done much for these begonias other than give them water. They do sit in a shady area of my front yard.
Overlooking the begonias is a cherub sitting on the edge of the porch. I have had her for several years and several house moves. That's a holly branch you see in the pic.
You may remember the "Little Lime" that I shared last week.
Take a look at the changes the gorgeous flowers have made in just a week. Amazing! It started to "pink up."
Now for birds . . .
The small downy woodpecker let me take a few pics of him this week. He comes to my upside-down suet feeder daily.
The finches are always fun to watch at the feeders.
That's a goldfinch, the male house finch, and the female house finch below.
I took these pics of the Red-Tailed Hawk at The Nature Station of Land Between the Lakes where birds are protected and cared for because of injury, being orphaned, or losing their natural fear of humans.
I read that the Red-Tailed Hawk is the most common hawk in North America.
You may see one circling in an open field with his eyes fixed on the ground looking for a vole or rabbit for lunch.
There you have it, another week of Barns, Blooms, and Birds. Thanks for stopping by - Judy.
