GARDEN TOUR
On Sunday, two of my daughters and I did a garden tour out in the county at Everson. This is a farming community and the garden we liked best had old garden impliments and toys incorporated into the garden scheme.
There were five homes on the tour but we only did four because a horrendous thunder storm hit when we were at the fourth and we got saturated! I've never seen rain like that! Thunder, lightning, and even hail and it just kept coming! The rain drops were bouncing high off the pavement and every low spot in the surrounding lawn became a pond. We found shelter in a carport and waited nearly an hour for the rain to stop but it didn't until after we had left. The next three posts will have some of the photos I took before the storm hit.
(Picasa will only let me put four photos in a post so I have to do several posts!)


A quiet shady place

I'm not sure what this piece of machinery is, Maybe a hay rake..
It sits among the trees and shrubs as if it were made to be right there.


Minus the wash and rinse tubs, this old washer stand still has the rubber ringers and clamps. I can just imagine the farm wife who stood beside the wash tub with a scrub board for hours at a time. (And I think my back is sore!)


This antique car sits inside an old garage. The crank still attached to the front just above the license plate.
