Hello there everyone..
Would you sweet friends like to go on a little field trip? Good.. smile..
Today Terry and I had to go up to our old farm and we decided to get some boughs for Christmas decorating..
There is the dear man there in the rear view mirror...
The back of the truck has pine and fir already that he collected in our field but there was not any cedar.. Here he is gathering some of it that was growing right beside the road..
Bless his heart:-) smile.. He is a good man...
Anyway, we came to a fork in the road and I mentioned that we had not been up to my Dad's grave for awhile..
So, he turned left and we headed for Gowland Mountain..
Here are some pics of the beautiful scenery along the way..
Very old farms...
Lots of old barns that have not been used for years.. Just cobwebs and memories..
There are still some huge farms, though..
And of course our windmill farm in the distance..
You can only see two there..
But I believe there are at least 40..
You can see these old farms on a road that runs parallel in the distance..
My Gram and Gramp grew up here in these mountains..
Many years ago..
I don't want to be maudlin but my dear Dad was laid to rest here..
When I stand there on that hillside and look out over the hills I imagine the glad morning when the dead in Christ shall rise..
I have four sets of grandparents here and many other dear ones..
Here are some more photos...
Lovely old barns...
Driving along I noticed this partridge in a tree getting his supper...
It's not a pear tree, though...smile..
This is truly a rural part of our province but so beautiful..
Little buildings that were used for dairy and chickens and whatever..
I need to get home and make some supper..
Corn chowder and some garlic toast..
When supper was over I did these..
Just something I will share with you tomorrow.. smile..
Do you know what they are ???
Thank you dear friends for your visit..
Last week my stats showed that you visited more than ever before..
I am so glad to have you and am looking forward to hearing from you..
I did not mean for this post to be so long..
It was just hard to limit the pics..
Have a blessed evening..
