My Aunt Deb is a watercolor artist and requested some pics of old wood and rust. I did my best to oblige. I love this pic of the old church near the Flora school.
You can tell this this is the side that gets less wind and sun. There was still a lot of paint on it. Oh, how I wish someone would restore this old church!
I took a bunch of close up pictures of various objects around North End Crossing Barn and Bed.
This house and covered well was photographed at sunset. It is called the Conley House. They are hoping to restore it and make it part of the "Barn and Bed". It was one of the first homes to be built in Flora.
Looks like a pitchfork, but Dan thought it was probably a cabbage harvester, since it had a blade in the middle of it.
Hope you can see the beauty of all this rust and old wood like I do. I love history! We can learn so much from the past, especially when it comes to helping us appreciating what we have today. How I wish I could have met the people who lived in Flora a hundred years ago!
