SKYWATCH FRIDAY

My second post from Cox Farm.   


The skies were filled with clouds and on our way home it rained, but while we were walking around here not one drop of liquid sunshine.


They have a lot of old farming equipment lying around which we both enjoy.


We also liked the old car.


And those pretty blue skies made a nice back-drop. 


Not sure what this is but they have some lovely blooms.
(Thanks to Marie from A Colorful World, I now know this is okra.  Thanks Marie!)


I hope you've enjoyed the skies around my part of Virginia, along with our trip to the farm.

That old car is something else. The place reminds me somewhat of farms near where I grew up that had a bit of a "come on in" feel to them.

Marie said...

It's okra... one of my favorite things to grow...and eat! :-) I do love the signs in the other post showing what everything is. Very nice!

I love the huge fruit decorations! And that old car. Wish I could visit. So what did you buy?

I enjoyed your photos very much.

Gosh this is a wonderful place. I liked your comment (I think in the other farm post) about wanting to know what crops are. When I am Queen of the World, all farmers will put a little sign out saying what is growing in their fields. We have stopped the car so often trying to figure out. Sometimes we find someone to ask and then we're happy! (I learned soybeans that way ... the person who told me looked at me funny like 'doesn't everybody know that?').

What a neat farm, Eileen. You two visit so many interesting places and take such great photos.. That's why your blog is always so interesting...THANKS!!!!

Love that old vehicle.. My Dad used to own an old car similar to that.. One time, he 'accidentally' backed it in the river ---so they say. (I wasn't born yet.) ha

Hugs,
Betsy

The plants in the last shot look like tobacco, but the flower is wrong...maybe a hybrid? David would like the old Ford.

schmidleysscribblins.com said...

That truck really is a time capsule! Love it!

I agree - the car is just stunning and better for being in a state! Interesting about it being Okra - I've never seen it growing before. Thanks to Marie!
