Flower Garden in a Pot!

This is an attempt to have all my flower garden in one spot. No birds in the house, just for decoration.

Another Old Red Barn

I "just happened" to have my new digital camera along on my transit bus route this morning. I couldn't resist this beautiful old barn. Actually the entire farm is beautiful.

Local Historical Landmark

At Paradise Spring treaty ground, in October, 1826, Potawatomi and Miami tribes signed treaties with the United States ceding lands north of the Wabash River. Ther treaties included provisions for land for a canal and the Michigan Road. The cabins seen here housed military personnel and government officials. Today, there is a walking path through the treaty grounds, and down along the Wabash River. It's a pleasant place to walk, or to just sit and dream.

Keeping Warm

I have a new digital camera! Since it's raining and not fit outside, this is just a random shot of my "wood" stove. Note the coal skuttle. It's an antique that belonged to my grandfather.

The White Barn

This is an old beautiful farm just north of my hometown. The old white hip-roof barn and the huge brick farmhouse are in pristine condition. A young couple with two small boys live there. What a place to grow up!

This old mill is located on the Eel River. It is an actual working roller mill where flour is still made. It was built in the 1800's, was active until the 1950's. It has been refurbished and is open to the public. It's another landmark our community is extremely proud of.
