Scenic Sunday

North Carolina has some idyllic scenic spots, very nice to look at if you enjoy country driving. These pictures were taken in the Spring of 2008. The red barn standing in contrast to the leafless trees reminds me of the red barns of my storybooks as a child. The horses are steadily grazing, safe inside the fenced yard. And we share the roads with farm machinery. We even have road signs with cattle. It is very peaceful to live here.

You are right it does look a peaceful area. I love the red barns. Our farmer's barns are a different shape to yours but we have an American moved in down te road and he put a barn that shape in his yard.

Hi Cherie, wellllll...think I've got your blog added to my sidebar...again! I don't know what I've been doing incorrectly but think it's fixed now...I HOPE!
I love living in the country and have the same signs you have. I wouldn't trade country living for a penthouse in Manhattan!
