Shadow Shot Sunday...to and fro...

On the road again...

to the grand Farm-Style open house
at the beautiful
Sister's Garden and Bloom...

Link
MUMS FOR SALE...

VEGGIES FOR SALE...
bad Scratchy, no Scratchy...

EAT...YUMMM...

Barb and her crew were busy preparing the
farmer's market with oodles of veggies
completing the total Iowa scene...

vintage vehicles dotted the landscape,
adding to the feel of the ol' timey farm life...
I have truck envy!!!

Can't you just see me making deliveries
with my car loaded with soap and eggs...LOL...

The little glass house gleams in the summer sun...

as the last of summer whites
and warm breezes...

make way for Autumn harvests...

and cozy fall settings...

begging you inside out of the wind...

Autumn in farm country...IOWA STYLE...

Home again, home again,
jiggity jig...
Now down under to our Aussie host

I LOVE your road shadows Sharon. and I too have truck envy. It seems you had a fun fun day and who wouldn't visiting such a cool place. it's all that I love in a shopping venture. so much nicer that a mall - oh dear. we are officially in a drought here but escaped a frost the other night. happy weekend to you!

Every time I thought I had picked my favourite photo ..... I scrolled down to an even better one! Love all the veggies and the vintage vehicles!

I didn't think that vintage Studebaker pickup was your work vehicle - I don't imagine that you would mind if it was!

I like perusing these autumnal themed garden stores. Sister's is fancy, Bloom a bit funkier. Get the last of the summer veggies now, the frost already arrived in the Hawkeye State I believe. Nice places are up here, and if the wheelchair fits, we will go shopping!

The roads in Iowa are straict as an arrow, so you made good time...

I really enjoyed these early autumn photos ~ even if it's still summer for a few more days.

Your neck of the woods looks so picturesque.

I need to get me some mums. I love mums!

Yes, I could imagine you delivering soaps and eggs in the truck. ;-)

Hey nut! You will be there in soap......I plan to take her some as a gift! Love the white church pews! Have always wanted one. L

Love it!! Is that silver truck a Chevy? It sure looks like it. Those trucks make me swoon!

Jeanette said...

What a wonderful post. I love all the pictures. I bet the Open House was a big success. It looks like a wonderful place to visit and shop.
I like your shadow shot also. The long shadow of your vehicle as you drive along is really neat.

Oh my this was a fabulous ShadowShot presentation. Makes Iowa look like some kind of magical wonderland! We might have to take a drive over there (my mother in law's homeland!) once Patrick retires. Happy SSS.

I have scrolled through this post several times just drinking in the gorgeous atmosphere. Mellow beauty everywhere graced with shadows!

We have had a wonderful warm day and today I drove for a little longer to Mornington ...about 20 minutes each way! That is my longest drive yet and my arm felt OK! Still a bit of a hassle getting the seatbelt on but I'm adapting by pulling the belt out with my good arm before I get in the car! Where there's a will there's a way!

And it's still daylight at 5:00pm now! Clear daylight and not sunset! It really must be Spring at last!

Slowly getting my little garden into shape again! It's been neglected since my arm woes! Lots of trimming and weeding to be done! But I love it and it's good to see all the new growth as I go! If only the rosellas wouldn't munch away at the fruit tree blossoms! One munch ... drop! What a waste!

You sound as if you totally loved your time at Sisters! You are still bubbling!

Have a wonderful week and give Scratchy a big hug for me! Always mean to say that and then forget! And a super hug for you!
