Rubbish Tuesday #21

The weather was gorgeous, too nice to stay inside, so I grabbed the keys and took off on a ramble through the back roads. Hints of fall colors are popping up all over.


A bit of red brightens this old, abandoned garage.


Goldenrod and weeds, a sure sign of fall, surround this wood duck house

The soybeans are turning a beautiful shade of yellow.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you will join in the fun.

My idea was to have a place to post 'old things'. Anything old
and/or deteriorating such as, but not limited to, old houses, barns, outbuildings, old cars, rusty things, antiques, interesting junk, or it can be something in pristine condition, but just old. 

1. Link to a post featuring photos of something old.
2. Link back to Rubbish by Roan in your post.
3. As time allows, visit other participants and comment on their posts.

My BIL had a soy bean farm....in Illinois for fact!! I remember how yellow the fields were around this time of year.

LOVE the abandoned garage.

Most soybeans are turning yellow, but a few are still nice and green around here. Have a great week. Tom The Backroads Traveller

The barn maybe falling down, but still has character. Love all your rubbish.

I love all the fall colors popping out everywhere. The old barn hidden under the brush and trees is my favorite pic today.

Nice photo's of the beginning of autumn, pretty colours and usually an attractive time of year colourwise.

I had such a laugh about the bat in the courtroom! :-)

Wow, looks just like around here, and time for the Box Elder Beetles to swarm. Eeeek. Great fall pics, Betty.

Rose said...

I am just sitting here trying to decide if I should join...I may go ahead and just keep my fingers crossed I have time to visit.

Anyway, very nice shots....LOVE the second one.

Great autumn safari. Bringing a camara certainly makes one see buildings and nature in a different and more detailed way.
I so love the way you describe rural America.
I'd like for us all to remain rooted in our past to be able to make the right choices for the future.

Hi What a lovely drive and you found beautiful colours. Autumn is indeed round the corner. I have just arrived back after a 6 weeks holiday in Africa and have LOTS of photographs to edit and share (eventually)
