Driving Through The Georgia Backcountry

I packed a hurried repast to satisfy the hunger pains
while ensuring that the camera was charged and ready.
Then we cranked up the trusty "cage"
for a trek through the countryside.

These are a few I, or husband, snapped along the way.

A local herald of Spring, they're not native but they grow wild here.

I love your photos. The corn looks good. Should be a good crop this year. I love looking at old barns in the country and never realized their beauty in a photo until the last few years. I hope you have a great weekend.

Because of all the rain, the entire countryside and especially the corn is looking good. I've noticed very few of the farmers have had to use their "pivots". No depletion of ground water that way too.

I'm a sucker for stopping and photographing old buildings. I always wonder what story they could tell if they could talk.

The Mama goose started out with 5 or 6 goslings. She's down to 2. I think it's because of coyotes.

Have a wonderful weekend all! ~:)

Love the ride today. Oh how beautiful. You and your husband must have a great time together. I love old abandoned buildings. These are great photos.

Wow! That's post card stuff right there! Soooo good! Makes me want to put in an offer to the realtor on that abandoned farm house :)

Southeast Georgia does offer a lot of beauty. I gripe and moan about this or that here but the living is cheaper, there's more liberty and the surroundings are enough to tempt even the most ardent curmudgeon (like me) to enjoy. ~:)
