While I don’t walk on the weekends I usually have some excess pictures that I’d like to share. The first one is a Pieris Japonica (Mountain Fire Pieris) bush. I found it in town on 4th street.
While I’m on the subject of pretty flowers I saw this flowering Japanese Cherry tree against a backdrop of a beautiful old house at the corner of Broadway and Coveland.
An interesting side note about this house. Most days as I walk past this house I see smoke coming out of a small chimney. Rudy, a nice older gentleman, cooks on an old cast iron wood burning stove and he’s usually making coffee about that time. I love quaint towns.
Out on Ebey Rd., south of town, there is an old heritage farm. I believe it’s the John Gould House/Smith Farm built around 1886. Unfortunately it’s not in the greatest of shape but I think the farm is on the Ebey’s Forever Fund to be preserved. This is one of the outbuildings in the morning sunlight.
Across the street from the outbuilding is the Sherman Pioneer Produce farm. They have a bunch of old rusting equipment “planted” all over the place. I really enjoy looking at the old machines. This farming piece caught my eye, again in the morning sun. I’m not sure what it is, any ideas?
And finally from the same farm a “Trebuchet”. Who’d ever thought that you’d find one of these in the Ebey Prairie. The Sherman Farm is very popular in the fall for all the great pumpkins they grow. While I’ve never seen it I’m sure they use it for “Punpkin Chunkin“.
