LET THE SUN SHINE!!!! I am so happy to see some sun rays outside! It has been so ugly, foggy, gloomy, dreary, cold, damp and BLAH here for the past week. Today it is GORGEOUS outside. I really want to be outside gettin' some sun on these white legs....but that will have to wait *sigh*.
Friday I had a fun day with the Dirt Queen (aka my mom ) and the Hydrangea Queen. We ventured across the bay (aka the county next ours) to Crenshaw Daylily Farm. I have heard of this place for a while, but I had not been. The first weekend of every month they have a yardsale in their barn. People come in and sale whatever they want. Of course they sale daylilies too.....oh and horses!!!!
The daylilies aren't blooming yet. I will have to go back when they are in bloom.
Ya'll can see it was an ugly, blah day!
This barn had a lot of stuff in it. Some stuff I liked, some not so much.
There were several chandeliers and pendant lights for sale
odds and ends
a snazzy metal sunflower!
this stove that I would loooove to have
except it was sold. Not sure what I would do with it, but I like it ;-)
any idea what this next picture is?????
a TELEVISION!!!! Apparently one of the first ones made! It was pretty cool looking. I like that snazzy gold banding around it.
these little knobs were cute
shame on me for what I am about to say -
I have lived in Alabama my whole life and I knew we had a few covered bridges.....but not enough to write a whole book on. I should have bought this book. It had stories, drawings, photographs, etc. Very cool. Next time I go back I think I will have to buy this.
After we left the barn, we went over to the owners house to see her gardens and horses
I am a sucker for an OLD live oak...and she had a nice one in her front yard.
a few white camellias for ya'll. Some of them had a drop of red on them.
and one more shot of that tree :-)
See ya'll later
