It’s the time of year when wild plants start to grow on our farm in Randolph County. We have an abundance of thistle. They are weeds, but the birds love them, so we let them grow for the most part. Here are a couple of images from behind my barn.

In My Own Backyard

I’ve begun to notice that you don’t have to go far sometimes to find interesting images. I love to travel as much as anyone and sometimes I feel that if I’m not in some exotic local, I can’t find anything to shoot. Then I walk out my backdoor and stumble upon something that grabs my attention. I hope from time to time to share my backyard moments.
