We took a little impromptu day trip, Monday.
For the past 15 or 20 years, J has taken the blood thinner Coumadin. Most of the time things go smoothly. The past month the numbers have been erratic and dosage adjustments have been made, followed by blood tests, in a week. Monday was the day for the latest blood work.
As long as we were headed in a southerly direction, for the test, we decided to take a detour to New Town Saint Charles.
The homes at New Town are reminiscent of homes from another era.
As we walked along looking at these pretty homes, most with a front porch, we saw lots of Limelight Hydrangea, like the one above.
All the photos up to and including the one above, were taken at New Town Saint Charles.
J looking over tomatoes…
We found a farm stand, on the road home, selling produce on the honor system. See the coffee can in the upper left photo? That’s the “cash register”.
We found more tomatoes and new potatoes at another stand. No green beans though.
This beautiful bed of Zinnia’s was near the second farm stand.
Cows and calves in a pasture along a gravel road.
J and I lived in the back pasture, at the farm.
Some of you guessed the farm implements from the previous post.
The two, in the first photo, are corn planters. The large contraption, in the second photo, is a manure spreader.
