One of my favorite things to do in the country is to take a sunset stroll. This evening, my daughter meandered with me. We wonder how long this machinery has been resting on this spot? As we ambled along, we babbled about any and everything that popped into our noggins. Even weeds can be delightful… Continue reading Sunset Wanderings in My Backyard
