Weathered Gray

Although we didn’t have as bad a winter as they’d called for, I’ll sure be glad if spring ever stakes its claim. 

Right now we seem stuck between the two seasons: wearing shorts one day, long underwear the next. 

And, the recurrent theme right now? 

No sun. 

The color of the days falls somewhere in the midst of charcoal smeared with a smidgen of white. 

Yuck. That gets old. 

Something really cool happened a few days ago. We found a place that is the perfect cross between where black and white feel quite at home.

About forty miles from here is a seed farm that is bathed in old fashioned. As soon as our truck door opened, we stepped back into the 1800’s. 

The “town” consists of a blacksmith shop, apothecary, seed store, barn, and a restaurant. 

While bits of color were sprinkled here and there, I was reminded that there is an absolute beauty in weathered gray.

  1. What an absolutely, incredibly beautiful, charm filled post. I LOVED all the photos. They enabled me to be there with you.

    Aw Jessica …. I wouldn’t have wanted to leave. How incredible to find such a wonderful place, where time went slower and no one was in a hurry. Perfect. Loved it.
    Thank you so much for sharing this with us.

    • You spoil me with your words here! Thank you for such a heartfelt compliment. I’m so glad we finally went there. Occasionally they have festivals and thousands of people go, that scared me off a bit, ha. I’m not one for a huge crowd. But, going on a Tuesday was really nice. I love that you loved all the pictures. Maybe it’ll be sunny next time we go and I can show you a weather gray in sunlight! 😊☀️ Hope you have a beautiful day!

  2. Beautiful, interesting photos! Would love to visit a place like that! Over here, spring hasn’t started yet, either. The sun has made an appearance occasionally, like today, but it’s always very windy and the wind is super cold. Then there’s rain (usually on weekends!) and last week it snowed… Grey, black and white – yep, so tired of those colors! :) Well, we just need to be patient, it will come one day…

  3. Go back when all the gardens are lush and you won’t believe the difference. Talk about beauty! I visited Baker Creek in Missouri a couple of years ago, and am so glad I did. It’s far from me or I would go often. I loved the apothecary shop, and spent a bundle at the seed store.

    • Oh my goodness, I’m soooo excited that you’ve been there!! Now I can’t wait to go back! There were a few blooms- black violets, red tulips, splashes of purple and pink, but now I want to see it ALL colored up!! Loved the propane tank painted like a giant watermelon. I can see why you spent a bundle at theses store! I love the fabric section, book section, and of course- the seeds. The apothecary shop was really neat. Thank you for commenting! It’s so nice to “meet” you!
