Built in 1878 it is actually located on Route 15, eight miles south of Leesburg and is near the Oatlands Plantation.
We would like to have taken a look inside but there was a sign on the door saying 'No Trespassing'. We weren't sure if that meant the whole area, so after we took a few more photos we thought it prudent to go back to our car and be on our way.
Next door is the Parish Hall built later than the church but I couldn't find a date telling us when.
This is the sign as you enter the town of Waterford. It was originally settled by Quakers and the homes in the town center are lovely, but this time we just touched on the outskirts.
Gregg took the photos of the houses and this beautiful tree in the front of the home above. At first I identified this as a Lilac but JJ corrected me and said she thought it was a Wisteria. When I studied it a little more closely I realized the difference. Thanks JJ. You can see JJ's super blog if you click right here.
I enjoyed taking photos of the Mustard Grass and Dandelions getting ready to release their seeds when the next breeze came through.
We drove by a field and now you know where I got my header photo from. Adorable donkey's aren't they?
When I was very young, around nine years of age, I always visited a donkey on my way home from school. He taught me a valuable lesson on the correct way to feed animals. Which was, never offer food with your fingers thrust forward, because mine were chomped down on and I never forgot the pain of it. I figured out very quickly after that, that you offered the food on the palm of your hand and from then on I loved how the donkey's muzzle tickled as he ate whatever I had to offer. I usually packed a couple of carrots in my bag, which Mum always seemed to have in the pantry.
We came across another critter dressed for the weather. It was supposed to rain quite a bit, but thankfully we only had a few sprinkles.
Thank you Klaus, Sandy, Wren, Fishing Guy, Louise and Sylvia for hosting My World.
