All shapes and sizes

Fences come in all shapes and sizes.
I believe the purpose of this one is simply to mark the property line.  It is several yards from my drive.
Yes, I get to see that great vintage truck and that great barn every time I pull in.
I'm a lucky girl.
City folk:  you're missing out.

Spring in winter

I thought I would try bringing some blooms inside.

These were cut from the Bradford Pear trees two days ago.

We'll see what the blooms look like in a couple of days.  Hopefully, they won't fall off early.

and my helper.

Moo (Rurality # 4)

Neighbor cows wandered into the yard of the private residence where we stayed in Franklin, Tennessee this past December while having medical treatments in Nashville.

All through the woods

These pale dried leaves all throughout the woods have been getting my attention all winter.  They seem to be all over.  I don't know if they are there every year and I'm just now seeing them, or if it is something about our last fall season that caused the leaves to dry and not fall off.
Anyway, I finally stopped the car and snapped a couple.

Snow clouds over the lake

Wish I could have stopped for this one.
I keep very few drive by shots because they just don't come out well.  This was also taken through the window because it was too cold to open it.  These are snow clouds over Nickajack Lake on I-24 in Tennessee.  I barely got it in before that 18 wheeler came between me and the view.  And, no I was not driving.  :)

Four and twenty (Rurality # 2)

There were more like one thousand and twenty blackbirds swirling and twirling around behind my house the other day.

Do you remember the nursery rhyme?

Sing a song of sixpence,
A pocket full of rye.
Four and twenty blackbirds,
Baked in a pie.

When the pie was opened,
The birds began to sing;
Wasn't that a dainty dish,
To set before the king?

The king was in his counting house,
Counting out his money;
The queen was in the parlour,
Eating bread and honey.

The maid was in the garden,
Hanging out the clothes;
When down came a blackbird
And pecked off her nose.

Rurality Number One

Near Lynnville, Tennessee, U. S. A.
November 2012

Lots of rurality here.  I remember stopping here because of the donkey, but he/she didn't appreciate it and walked away from the fence.  Looking for something for Madge's new theme I decided this is a worthy shot.  I think my husband actually took the photo.  He is not into photography whatsoever, but will indulge me from his passenger role on occasion.  "Papa drives, Mama rides" has been reversed the last few months.  (I'll update Husband News soon.)

Having been uninspired and uninterested in picture taking the last few weeks, I am hoping that getting in on the first week of a brand new theme will get me out of my rut.

It's cold and we're staying in and away from flu germs as much as possible.
There's always something in the house to photograph.
