Last Spring Sissy and I were exploring the forests surrounding The Abandoned. Who did we happen to see, but this Gnome strolling effortlessly through stinging nettles and black berry vines. He seemed to be in a great hurry, but did stop to wave a friendly hello.
Then he was on his way. And so were we.

In our wanderings in the grounds in and around The Abandoned, Sissy and I find beauty everywhere. It can be found in the ferns, moss, even a stump such as this. Do you see the heart?

I love to walk here with my sister (she has permission to be on the property). Because of the "tweekers" who come to pillage wire and other salvageable items from the buildings, it is best never to walk here alone.
Standing inside The Abandoned on an upstairs balcony, looking over what once was a cafeteria, it is eery to view light fixtures hanging from the inside, with no barrier to the world outside. Great windows once stood here, until vandals smashed them to pieces.
I found a huddle of bright fabric puddled against cement and broken glass. The curtains once covered those huge windows.
I am so happy to see the owners of this property are finally cleaning and maintaining this amazing complex of buildings. I will post more photos as the clean up progresses.
