Beauty in The Abandoned

There are new owners who are evaluating the property and buildings of The Abandoned!  They were in a meeting as Sissy and I made our rounds.  I hope they will undo what the previous owners have allowed here.  This is a decidedly exciting development!

I thought the 15 mph sign was interesting with the kitchen area of The Abandoned in view.

I don't know that I've ever seen a pink Queen Anne's Lace flower before.  I loved this picture--it almost seems magical to me.

Near the grounds of The Abandoned we found this ancient maple tree.  It is massive.

I am sure it was here, growing green and strong, when the Union fought the South in America's Civil War, maybe even before that.  I am in awe of its sheer size and age.

We found the fire bush in bloom.  What lovely blossoms!  It is so interesting to find such contrasts of beauty and ugliness all in one place.  Today I have concentrated upon the mostly beautiful side of The Abandoned.

NOTE: If you intend to visit The Abandoned, be sure to get permission from the owners first. If you do not have permission, you may be arrested and prosecuted for trespassing.

Ooooooh! I love your fire bush! I also had never seen a pink QAL before ... must be something in the water? What a fun, if short, walk we had!
