Would love to know the history behind Spooks Branch! Lovely photos, as always a joy to begin the day with.

Beeeautiful! I started out thinking "this is my favorite", but by the time I was at the end, I found all those images equally beautiful. And thank you for that extra dash of red, I miss it here.

Vicki, were those turkeys in the front yard? If so, is it safe for them to be so nonchalant at this time of the year?

I love every one of these photographs, and now must do some real estate investigating. As Merisi wrote, it's hard to pick a favorite.

Love the building with the shuttered windows and large red door.

Thanks as always for a great selection, and I've never been on either of those roads, yet! It takes slowing down and really looking, with camera in hand, to find the beauty!

I'll see what I can find out about Spook's Branch...

Those were turkeys, Frances, but as they're in the city limits, I expect hunting is forbidden. They seemed quite tame. Re real estate -- a friend just commented on Facebook that friend's of hers have a house for sale on Spook's Branch. Such a tempting address!

I like all of your photographs Vicki. The one that has me guessing is the one that has a tarp hanging over a line and piles of leaves along the side of the house with ivy growing out of the piles.

A great series of pictures – very picturesque. I had to look on the dictionary for spook as I was not sure of the meaning. It said Spook, a ghost, a specter. I should have used this word in my current post, it would have fit perfectly, but I used “haunted” instead I think.

Vicki Lane said...

Kath, I've made an attempt to find out about the name but no joy so far.

Jim, I'm guessing the tarp is used like a curtain to protect a porch sitter from too much sun or rain -- or just for privacy.

Nice architectural details and a happy horse.
