Thursday’s Doors ~ outbuilding, part 3

Image

For me, the weather vane 

reminds me of the 

“barn on fire” post.

We weren’t quite sure 

but now, after taking a few

dusty, winding country roads

I think we can agree of its purpose.

The outbuilding could house pots,

farming tools, tractor or these days,

a riding lawn mower. . .

The stone work and different

identifying features confirm

1800’s period where it was

both a serene setting but

a rugged, “feast or famine”

time in history.

Thursday’s Doors ~ Stratford on the Whetstone, part 2

Image


The grass so green evokes imaginary

memories of  farming,  milling, 

with families living in close-knit 

industrious community. 

Sacred ground, when people were 

“the salt of the earth.”

As I had noticed Dutch symbols

upon the barn, the total setting 

leaves purposeful, productive

lasting impressions 

upon my mind.

simple story of monthly

passage by this beautiful

pastoral setting by her, too.

Although not a door on this post,

I would like to remind visitors

to check out other doors,

Hope y’all enjoyed a little history

and could smell the clover, grass

and rich soil of Delaware, OH land!

Mystery inspiration

Snow on weeds, 

Rusty Studebaker,

Historical license plates,

Burnt sienna colored fenders.

What do you think is inside 

on the threadbare seats?

What would be mystery 

behind the no longer 

loved and treasured 

automobile?
