I'm thinking this is a cotton gin...
looks like cotton all over the parking lot...
I just love driving through country towns...
seeing all the farm houses...and such...
makes you forget about the hustle and bustle of city life...
love the cows...they don't get in a fuss about much...
just stand around eatin.....talkin....soakin up the sunshine...
the bales of hay....
just waiting to do their job....
hope you have a peaceful Wednesday.....
Old McDonald had a farm....E...I..E...I....O...
the song for the day for me and little britches...
The cow says MOOOOOO....
we love the farm stories....
found a cute new book...
"When the Rooster Crowed" by Patricia Lillie

I love those country places too and am grateful to live in one! :) When I have to drive into Dallas (especially N Dallas and up the tollway, etc.) I get so tense now - just not cut out for concrete and cars anymore... :)

P.S. If it wasn't for their 'end', I'd want to be a cow in my next life. :)

I really like that farm house in the distance shot.
Country life...I do so love it.

Deb, I sure wish that I could check out your countryside! I am tired of snow already, and it has barely started!!

Beautiful country. We call those fuzzy worms, wolly worms, and watch them to try and predict the winter...black = cold, brown = mild.....

So many wonderful things to see in the country. I love living here and it's obvious, you do too.

Great photos!

Nothing better than a leisurely drive through the country. It's a sure fire way to relax and destress. Hope you are having a great New Year! Kat

As a native Texan I'm enjoying your blog, and Texas photos.

I loved the pictures. I am a country girl at heart and dream of the day when I can live somwhere far away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Three more years!

Janie said...

Your countryside looks peaceful and inviting. I'm most definitely a country girl at heart.
Happy New Year!

It does look like a cotton gin. They grow a lot of cotton here where I live in Buckeye.

Debbie-Doo, I love country living! I'm in agreement with texwisgirl, however, when I have to drive in Dallas. Ugh! Will be coming your way next week; I'll toot my horn when I pass. Enjoy this beautiful weather we're having! :)
