A short road trip to Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania was planned today for a business luncheon. In the outskirts of town, on a windy country road we arrived to the restaurant.
As luck would have it, I had the forethought to throw my Canon G12 into the car. Hoping to come across a photo op. And a photo op appeared. Appear it did. Right across the street was a large gardening center with a creative garden and field with old farm equipment.
Overgrown with plantings, these beasts of metal have become part of the landscape.
The lawn was being freshly mowed, and old hay bales were stacked on a wagon near the corn field.
There was a lovely hummingbird garden, with a bench for resting and enjoying the peaceful surroundings.
And a small vegetable garden. See how simple it is to create your own?
I wish I had more time to explore, but duty called. Keep your eyes opened, where ever you are. You never know what you may find. Bella
Surely there is grandeur in knowing that in the realm of thought, at least, you are without a chain; that you have the right to explore all heights and depth; that there are no walls nor fences, nor prohibited places, nor sacred corners in all the vast expanse of thought.

Love these, especially that truck completely “loaded” with greenery and flowers! What wonderful planting ideas! 🙂 And you’re so right about carrying a camera everywhere with you…I’ve started to do that more and I’m usually very pleased that I do!
That is wonderful news Sheryl. I bet you find some really awesome things to capture. Somehow I knew you would enjoy the blooming truck. 🙂
Thanks sweet girl. Have a great weekend.
I love how our technology has become our funky art.
LOL ! At least it’s not in a land fill right? Thank you so much Charlie.
Even though I did all of my limited farming on a John Deere, I still like those old Farmall A tractors. I wonder how many of them are sitting around much like the one that you photographed so well? That’s also a novel use for the old truck.
You say that a garden like that is simple to create, you should work on one with my ex before making such a statement. 😉
Oh I totally agree ! One should never embark on any kind of a project with a spouse. Talk about a recipe for disaster. 🙂 There is a farm museum that I keep saying I’ll go and visit. Perhaps I’ll make it a point to get out there to discover new and old things for us. 🙂
Thanks for a good laugh! Now that I’m done rolling on the floor, I’ll only say, like I had any choice but to get involved in her project.
Now I’m laughing on the floor…remember that train room I briefly showed you. Talk about a spouse project black hole. I quickly disappeared and made someone else help him. 🙂 Disappearing..it’s a beautiful thing!
I couldn’t disappear at the time, I was the muscle for that project, but I did disappear not long after that, forever!
🙂 Smart Boy!
How quaint!! Your pictures made me feel like I was there and could almost smell everything, too!
It was indeed breath of fresh air being out in the country. Fantastic biking roads out in that area, you would love it. Also Harley Davidson has a plant nearby. 🙂
Hmmmm, you are tempting me!
Wonderful. excellent captured… 🙂
Thank you so much Drake ! A reminder of the past for you. 🙂
The truck and hay bale wagon are both pieces of art – great series of pictures. You just never know what you’ll run across.
You’re absolutely right Mary ! I love what they did with those old farm vehicles. Almost makes me wish I had some in my garden. 🙂 Thank you so much for your kind words.
Beautiful Photos – love the truck capture:) Reminds me of growing up on the farm – love it! Happy Friday – Happy Weekend
You were so lucky to have grown up on a farm. I’m sure it was work, but fun. 🙂 Happy weekend back at ya!
love that old tractor, i wish i could have one like those 😉
I’m with you Evi. The tractor is way cool. Thank you so very much for all of your support. Your comments make me feel special.
Superb photos Emily ! I’m impressed by the first one, it’s a really good photo. It’s always great to visit your blog and look at your photography. Have a great week-end 🙂
I truly do appreciate your comments, it really helps me to know if I’m on the right track or not. I wasn’t super happy with the first image. The composition is solid, but the lighting was terrible. The life of an explorer, you take what you get right?
Thank you so very much for your kind response, and truly do appreciate you.
This pictures are absolutely amazing!
I swear I could see that tractor in the first image bopping up and down like they do.
