May 9

This is my weekend off and I was looking forward to sleeping a little late and having a leisurely morning today. Those plans came to an end when the phone rang at 5 am to ask me to come in to work because one of the nurses had called in.
It was raining quite hard as I was getting ready, but had slowed to an occasional sprinkle when I left the house at 6:30. The early morning lighting along with the stormy skies, encouraged me to stop and take a picture of this old barn before continuing on to work.

Beautiful barn photo, Mari.
Sorry your day didn't go as planned.
Happy Mother's Day to you tomorrow.
And to answer your question about my post today..Yes, I think that is what the bush is called. I didn't save the name tag on it when we planted it seven years ago. But I am pretty sure that is what it is.
Take care

That's a great picture, Mari!

It figures that a rainy day when it's perfect to sleep in, you get called in to work!

Happy Mothers Day!

Old barns make great photos, I think it's because they make you wonder about all the past events that went on in them. Nice photo!

Hi-I found you through Susan at Penless Writer. I think I would like to live wherever it is that you live! What a beautiful spot. Sometimes we get yanked out of what we thought we wanted into a moment He just knew we'd love! Blessings!

Seeing barns that are needing work and paint remind me of how the generation before us would keep them in tip top shape. Oh how things keep changing...

I believe that people who live in places like that has another relationship with time, space...
It seems to be more peaceful.
