Summer Peaches On A Country Road

It's time for me to take a drive in the country.
 
 
Stopped at an antique shop.

 
 
It's very dry now that summer is here.
 
 
 
The general store -
 love the horseshoe door handle.
 
 
There's nothing like summer peaches.
 
I always stop at the nursery
every time I come out this way.
 
 
And haunting it is.
 
 
 
Pretty birds
and other winged critters.
 
 
 
There is a fish pond in the
center of the nursery.
 
 
 
This BIG fish was staring at me.
 
 
 
Cheerful flowers,
almost like they are saying
"hello."
 
 
And children playing in the sun.
 
 
It's such a magical place.
 
 
 
These country roads get to me every time.

I love country drives. Those delphinium are gorgeous. Mine did not come back this year. Disappointing!

Sheri, So funny, I posted about some country roads . Well on the way to Liz's I took photos from the car windows. LOL. I love that garden area. There's a garden shop on the way to Liz's, I will have to get Ted to go there one day soon. I love seeing it all from the road, but close up would be so nice too. Love the statues. It's fun to look thru antique shops . Hope you bought some delicious peaches. Fresh peaches just always smell so good. Blessings, xoxo,love, Susie

Drives the country can be fun and adventurous! It looks you had a lovely time Sheri!

When I think of country drives I think of those with my Mom and Dad on a Sunday afternoon. Mom would fix her traditional Sunday dinner after Church and then the three of us would load up in the yellow and white pick up truck. We'd bounce along farm roads, country roads and mountain roads until my head would get heavy and I'd take a little nap! After the nap we'd always stop and get ice-cream. Thank you for igniting my childhood mind.
Love,
Jemma

Beautiful nursery, I can see why you stop by often.

What a lovely outing! I enjoyed the photos so much. Have a nice evening.

I am very fond of country drives. That nursery is a spot I would stop as well. I love when they make nurseries such special places and not just retail space. Oh, and peaches - yes please!

All the best Jan

I think it's so hard to get a good photo of koi in a pond. Bravo to you many times for that one! And I love that turquoise chest. It looks like such a fun road trip. If those are the things you stop for, I think we'd be good traveling companions!

We love driving on the country roads too! We need to take time to stop in some of the shops and stores that we see! I sure love the nursery and all of the beautiful plants...and those fish! Enjoy your evening my friend! Hugs!

Sheri, I feel like saying, ahhhh. Such a peaceful lovely drive. Visiting an antique store and a general store makes me happy. The horseshoe door handle is very clever! Your photos of the bird and the bee is just wonderful, my friend. Freshly picked peaches are just one of the best things in the world. What a lovely post, Sheri. Enjoy the rest of the week. ♥

I think the close up of the BIG fish is so cool.
I always enjoy taking trips with you.

Rose said...

Oh, Sheri, I would love to visit these places...we don't ramble the roads near like we used to and I miss it.

Mercy F said...

Nature tripping post from you is the best :) That's what I love on summer too, the stone fruits especially peaches, nectarines and prunes. Those empty bird cages and cake platter are really cute! Wonderful post Sheri!

Oh Sheri....You are going to be a GRAMMIE! And a little girl is so precious! Oh, I am so happy for Jess and Brian, too. What splendid news. Loved your photos from the drive to the country! Peaceful and lovely. Sheri, you are a dear to visit my posts. Thank you SO MUCH. Love them. Susan

Great ride, especially if there's an antique shop and beautiful gardens to drool over! xx

The fish pond has captured my whole attention. It's a lovely sight!
During summer, it's almost a crime to stay indoors. There's so much to see and experience outside!

I can see that you, like me, are a wanderer and a wonderer; and I don't think I've ever regretted having this tendency or have ever felt that it's useless to just wander. I believe that for those of us especially, who love to tell stories, that it's essential to notice. Someone's gotta do it because so many people are busy, too busy to notice.

The winged creatures, the rusty shadows of children playing, all these things take on new meaning when someone, anyone who notices, takes to the country roads.

Karen said...

Your country roads photos are wonderful. Wish I could pick ripe peaches from the orchard!

Pam Jackson said...

What a beautiful day to be out and about. I love to travel country roads! I take a lot of pics from the seat of my car in the country. I love the door handle, I love things like that, things usual. Thanks for sharing and taking me along with you!

The place to be.......love love love Ria x ❤️

Jill said...

Lovely photos, we used to have a koi pond at our old house and they would get quite big :-) Always a great day finding antiques too. Looks like your summer is off to a great start! Enjoy your afternoon.

Blessings,
Jill

What a charming place. LOVE that horseshoe handle and those fish. Perfect way to spend an afternoon.

Oh, you know I love a country road, Sheri! They have the most wonderful curves and cracks and bumps, not to mention the soothing scenery. Love the views and that nursery is so wonderful! I've never seen that great garden quote, but it is true, some gardens do haunt your dreams. This one looks so calm and cool with all its shady nooks. Those kinds of fish are funny - they seem so intelligent. Love the little statue, too. Sending hugs xo Karen

It looks like you had a wonderful time.
You make me want to antique browse and go to a garden. The horse shoe handle is fun. I saw a fence here, they used horseshoes to hold up each fence rail. Really charming.

Tami Hacker said...

What a wonderful garden! Whose garden? Where is it? So pretty! Looks like you enjoyed a beautiful day!
