CHRISTMAS HUGS Y'ALL FROM GEORGIA!
Okay you just know I have some more drive by barns from my Ohio trip. And some - believe it or not - turned out good - in spite of the drive by situation (taking photos at 80mph - my husband loves to speed). These are some more of the barns and they're not blurry (!), but alas, they are a bit far away. (They will get better and better on the next few Mondays and I even took some photos of fences.)
These were taken in the pretty state of Kentucky - the skies were pretty - a little overcast - but see the group of barns out there? Most are not abandoned and they're being used for something functional. I have to say they're prettier then the Georgia barns I've found here so far - at least in North GA. Southern GA would have a lot of peanut farms, but I'm not sure if they would have barns or not. I live in such a populated area that when we do go north the barns are old and abandoned - I think the land will someday be uses for urban growth here.
Going to Ohio is supposed to take around 6 hours without any stops and going the speed limit. I'm the worst offender - I want to stop as much or more than my GS!!! I'm a bad on the road. I would like to take days driving and stopping to see everything I can. Did I tell you that does not fit with the rest of my gang. So I don't push it. But maybe some day they will see what I see.
My dear friend at A La Carte - Linda - I was telling her about my barns and that I actually saw some barns with quilts on them this time. I was so excited. I saw two but I wasn't ready to take the picture. I mentioned to her I wonder why people put real quilts on their barns. And she very sweetly explained they were painted quilts. And sent me this article on it.
