Tractor show

October 1st, 2011 at 07:57 pm

Today I visited a tractor show at a local garden nursery and took some pix....

Here's the view from the road. Nice to see so much color this time of year.

This looks very much like the red farm tractor my grandfather used to let me steer while sitting in his lap. Except his was smaller. Isn't it grand?

I really like garden statuary.

I'm not even sure what these things were, but they made a lot of noise.

This is a combination windmill AND chicken coop.

Look at the bark on this tree! Gorgeous!

This is my favorite photo. It's another tree trunk, totally covered in lichens. Is it not beautiful?

I've seen this plant before, but I forget what it is.

    That's a strange one, isn't it? I hope it works out!

    Hope it works out, too!

    Your picture of the tractor made me happy - reminding me of my grandparents' one named Little Orville, who got sold at an auction when farm life was no longer conducive to their age.

    I'm not sure of the name of the loud piece of equipment you referenced in your photos, but it is used for shelling corn. One would insert a dried ear of corn, and it would put the corn kernels in one bucket and the cobs in another.

    Hope the job works out for you!

    I think the machine in the foreground is an apple press for extracting apple juice. The next one down looks like the corn sheller. And the plant with big orange dangly flowers might looks like brugmansia.

    JOA, I think you are right about the apple press, although I don't think of them being very loud. At first glance I saw them as being the same.

    Hopefully this job works out for you.

    Love the pics, especially the windmill coop! Love it!

    That's a first for me; I've never heard of anyone paying for editing emails!
